Abstract

This study provides an in-depth analysis of Multi-Level Governance in Cohesion Policy in the programming period of 2007-2013. It begins by examining the evolution of the concept and previous practices of implementing Multi-Level Governance in Cohesion Policy across the EU. It then provides a comparative analysis of partnership-working in nine programme case studies during the programming period and across the various stages of the policy cycle. The study identifies the advantages and disadvantages of partnership-working and formulates strategic and operational recommendations in the context of the preparation of the 2014-2020 programming period.
