Abstract: The Manual provides a compilation and an analysis of both difficulties recorded across the frontiers and solutions found to overcome them.
It has been elaborated on the basis of a major survey launched in 2009 by the ministers responsible for local and regional government of the 47 member States. The data collected through a questionnaire have been systematized and organized in such a way as to enable all actors of cross-border cooperation to find examples and solutions that may meet their particular needs.
The Manual is a snapshot of the situation at the end of 2013. It is complemented by an electronic platform hosted by ISIG that will be constantly updated with new data and experience (cbc.isig.it).
This Manual will prove useful to all those involved in crossborder cooperation – central governments, local and regional authorities, associations and citizens – who are encouraged to disseminate, to use and to enrich it through the electronic platform.
