Transfrontier co-operation




    In recent years there has been a steady increase in transfrontier co-operation bodies which are increasingly known by the term "Euroregions", particularly in central and eastern European countries. The name given to a transfrontier co-operation body, "Euroregion", suggests simply a feeling of belonging to Europe and a willingness to participate in the process of European integration and therefore, encourages the frontier local and regional authorities to co-operate for the common good.
