A territorial scale-based model for Euroregions and its implications for Cross-Border Cooperation in maritime contexts

Francesco Maria Camonita, Antoni Durà Guimerà, Andrea Noferini

Resum

Aquest article pretén avançar en el debat teòric sobre euroregions a través de l’anàlisi de les seves estructures de governança i de l’escala territorial de les seves activitats. L’argumentació es desenvolupa amb un estudi de seixanta euroregions i d’un nombre corresponent de projectes Interreg seleccionats en investigacions anteriors (Durà et al., 2018). Primer, s’intenta elaborar un model euroregional per a la classificació d’aquestes estructures de governança transfronterera a través d’una tipologia de classificació d’activitats de cooperació transfronterera a escala territorial, i a través de l’anàlisi de la densitat institucional i dels nivells administratius de govern dels actors involucrats. Segon, les contribucions teòriques d’aquest article s’apliquen en el context de territoris separats per una frontera marítima. A partir de l’explotació de resultats, l’article argumenta a favor d’activitats d’escala supralocal i regional al costat d’euroregions de tipus multinivell per a la cooperació transfronterera en contextos marítims.

Paraules clau

cooperació transfronterera; euroregions; model euroregional; escales de cooperació; CTF marítima
