The Upper Adriatic area


Argument

Argument

  • Cross-Border-Regions are laboratories for the emergence of a new mode of governance which can overcome national, institutional and mental barriers for developing a transnational multi layered network.


Theories used

Theories used

  • Multi-level-Governance

    • Type 1: hierarchical, jurisdictions at a limited number of levels

    • Type2: mix of polycentric authorities, complex, fluid patchwork of innumerable, overlapping jurisdictions at numerous territorial levels

  • Network

    • relatively stable, horizontal articulation of interdependent, operationally autonomous actors who interact with each other


The upper adriatic area

The Upper Adriatic area


Slovenian and italian border

Slovenian and Italian border

  • Slovenia and Italy were separated by the Iron Curtain during WWII

  • Their relationship was characterised by animosity and unresolved issues stemming from WWII

  • Semifederal vs Centralised state

  • The CB territory is characterised by a considerable presence of ethnic minorities


Role of the eu vis vis the sub national level

Role of the EU vis à vis the sub-national level

  • the EU vis à vis SNAs.

  • The EU and the common management of Interreg IV.

  • The EU Commission and the approval of the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC, EU new supra-regional juridical institution)


Presentation to the eu cohesion policy seminar university of strathclyde december 5th 2008

  • These factors seem to show that

    • the EU is trying to empower SNAs and promote new transnational institutions and programmes.

    • The actors involved are strongly encouraged to:

      • find a common working ground

      • overcome self-centred territorial issues and practices

      • think in terms of a cohesive cross-border area


Sub national actors participation symbolic or effective influence

Sub-national actors participation: symbolic or effective influence?

  • Italian and Slovenian institutional and political configuration

  • Italian Regions vis à vis Slovenian municipalities

  • Slovenia vis à vis Italian regions

  • Italy vis à vis EGTC.


Mlg type 1 or 2

MLG type 1 or 2?

  • MLG type 1: vertical relationship between regional, national and supranational jurisdiction. Asymmetrical

  • MLG type 2: horizontal network multi level linkages both visible and symmetrical at micro level
