Abstract

Case Study of Moravia-Silesia to evaluate the changing roles of regional economic restructuring in heavy industrial areas in Central and Eastern Europe. Its aim is to test the hypothesis, that processes of regionalisation are creating new institutional relationships and that these developments are having an impact on the formulation and implementation of94regional programmes. The context is the ‘rediscovery’ of the region.and the profound changes in the structure and systems of governance throughout Europe. The phrase ‘governance’ indicates a shift from the hierarchical mode of organisation to heterarchic self-organisation where the regional level plays a key role in leading and coordinating an integrated response to economic development changes
