Lessons from shared management in cohesion, rural development and fisheries policies
The objective of this study was to provide an overview of the arrangements characterizing the shared management system applied to structural policies and to account for the experience of the Commission in dealing with them. This study contributed to the debate on the future of Cohesion Policy by clarifying the respective responsibilities of Member States and the Commission in managing the budget, and by bringing new evidence on what works and what doesn’t – or works less well – in the delivery system of structural policies.
Client: European Commission, DG Regional and Urban Policy, 2009-2010.
