Journal of Regional Research- Investigaciones Regionales Call for Papers for a Special Issue devoted to analyse the role of Cohesion Policy on building citizens’ European Identity.
The Journal of Regional Research – Investigaciones Regionales announces a call for papers for a Special Issue devoted to analyse the role of Cohesion Policy on building citizens’ European Identity.
The Cohesion Policy is a fundamental pillar of the principle of solidarity in the European Union. It represents about a third of the EU budget and it is likely to be the policy intervention with the highest direct impact on the everyday EU citizens lives. The Special Issue aims at assessing the impact of the Cohesion Policy on the support for the EU project. Do citizens perceive the personal benefits of the Cohesion Policy? Is that perception linked with the intensity of the policy in the region? Is the perception of the policy leading to a higher support for the EU project? How are these channels affected by regional and personal characteristics? Is the communication of the Cohesion Policy effective? Both European and national experiences are welcomed in this collective volume, which will collect papers devoted to a nowadays important topic with significant implications in a period in which the EU project is increasingly questioned by some political actors and large portions of the population.
Special Editor: this Special Issue is edited by Edoardo Mollona and Jordi Suriñach. The volume collects international works on PERCEIVE H2020 project, as well as any other work on this topic not linked with the project.
