The spatial patterns of the Central and Eastern European countries are changing rapidly. The challenge for these new Member States is to use EU membership to accelerate their growth and to reform their socio-economic and territorial structures. However, restructuring of CEE countries does not always produce results congruent with the aims and principles of the EU's common policies. This places new demands on EU Cohesion policy, in particular, as it has to address major new challenges of convergence and cohesion at international, national and regional levels, while keeping within an environment of budgetary constraint. As the European Commission undertakes a fundamental review of cohesion policy, new thinking will be required as to the way forward for regional development intervention at European level. Against this background, the aim of this book is to present a contemporary assessment of the main processes and dilemmas of regional development and regional policy in the new Member States, taking a broad perspective of EU policies and policy choices for the future.
