Edited by John Bachtler, Ivan Turok

Series: Regions and Cities
This book brings together a rich selection of up-to-date practical experience of EU regional policy from across Europe. It provides different perspectives on the design and operation of regional development strategies under the Structural Funds, from people closely involved in studying, managing or advising on the process at EU, national and regional levels. It therefore offers a more comprehensive and detailed understanding of the structural policies than has been available hitherto. This will prove particularly useful to researchers, practitioners and students interested in European regional policies and processes.
Part one: Overview of Regional Problems and Policies. Part Two: Regional Development Strategies in the UK. Part Three: Regional Development Strategies. Part Four: Lessons and Challenges.
