Romania Catching-Up Regions : Interjurisdictional Cooperation Models (English)

This report explores interjurisdictional cooperation models through three broad lenses: i) International case studies; ii) Romanian legislative framework governing interjurisdictional organizations; and iii) examples of interjurisdictional cooperation institutions in Romania. On the basis of these, key observations and recommendations are made with the intent of informing both the Romanian government and EU as part of the 2021-2027 programming period.
