Tatiana Shaban | BIG Research Reports | #40
Ukraine moved towards a closer relationship with the European Union (EU) which encouraged Ukraine’s participation in a number of cross border co-operation (CBC) programs. Besides, the country set up a regional development policy which intended to overcome the disparities between the northern and eastern territories against the Russian border and the western territories against the EU border. The aim of the paper is to characterise cooperation programs (CBC) of border regions in Western Ukraine and to find out institutional capacities and gaps to intensify cross-border cooperation with the EU in those regions.
