Abstract

European regional and cohesion policy is a territorially discriminating policy: it operates in selected areas only. Its main aims, however, have traditionally been to support economic and social development in lagging regions or regions affected by specific challenges. In other words, whilst being discriminating territorially, European regional policy - as defined in Article 2 of the EU Treaty (former Article B), and Article 2 and 158 of the EC Treaty - is essentially a policy for economic and social development.
