Title: Strategies and Euroregions for cross-border co-operation in Balkan and Danube European countries. An Analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats
Author: Gasparini A., Del Bianco D.
ISIG has developed a study to provide an overview and assessment of the state of cross-border co-operation between European states in the geographical areas of Central, Northern and South Eastern Europe; it applies the so-called SWOT methodology according to the specific parameters developed by ISIG to assess the extent and depth of cross-border co-operation.
SWOT analysis is of vital importance because it produces sets of heuristically relevant indicators from cross-border cooperation processes. The elements of the up-to-date analytical scenario thus developed can be modified so as to positively influence future scenarios. Cross-border cooperation is bound to benefit from careful strategic planning and from practical actions organized by a Euroregion body set up in the cross-border context.
The present volume deals with the specific analysis on the Balkan and Danube European countries.
