DEVELOPMENT OF CROSS-BORDER AREAS. STUDY CASES REVIEW
The paper aims to review study cases found in the scientific literature concerning the development of cross-border areas in the European Union and its neighbourhood. The introductory part of the paper is drawing few considerations about the cross-border areas. Further we identified in the specific literature relevant study cases that provide lessons learned, tools and models that can contribute to the development of the cross-border areas. The last part of the paper is focusing on an inquiry about how these lessons learned, tools and models may be adapted in case of cross-border areas along the Romanian border with the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood.
