Summary/Abstract: Even critiques of the grand projet européen admit that the eu has been the most active supplier of new modes of socio-economic governance. in search of responding to problems of socio-economic disparities while facing challenges of vertically overlapping authorities as well as a multitude of horizontal stakeholder interests, the eu has developed a series of innovative decision-making arrangements in a multi-level system. These encourage flexible policy-making procedures, learning and exchange and rely on less hierarchical and less formal steering of policy-making that distribute authority among a variety of actors more or less evenly. As a “home-turf” of multi-level governance cohesion policy has since its conception produced some of the most innovative governance modes to empower lower level state and non-state actors to the extent that they can participate in planning, implementing and monitoring sub-national development policies.
