Summary/Abstract: This article aims at identifying the aim, general structure, and content of the European Danube Strategy. In a first step, we present the functional macro-regional cooperation as a fairly new approach of the EU aiming at tackling the territorial or spatial problems in general and economic and social underdevelopment in particular. First of all, we define the political background shaping the aims and constraints of political actors when striving to implement their political priorities in the multilevel environment of the EU (1). We then elaborate on macro-regional cooperation as a fairly new method of EU action in the field of fostering regional development (2). A final part of the article presents the governance structure (3) and the policies at stake (4). We end with a resumé pointing out the problems of and the perspectives for the EDS.
