    Abstract

    'Macro-region' is an established term in economic and political geography and spatial planning. As such, it is widely applied in a range of contexts. However, following the adoption of the macro-regional Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and the identification of other potential macro-regions in the Danube, Alpine, Black Sea and Mediterranean areas, the concept of macro-regions has gained increased prominence in contemporary policy practice and debates.
