Abstract

The aim of this study is to assess the evolution and implementation of the strategic coherence of Cohesion Policy in 2014-20. Based on documentary analysis and interviews with Member State authorities, the study finds that there have been overall improvements compared to the previous period, but it also highlights a series of EU and domestic challenges in ensuring a strategically coherent approach between different European Structural and Investment Funds and with other EU policies.
