Border obstacles in the EU: experts have their say

DG REGIO has launched this Cross-Border Review, an initiative structured around 3 pillars: a study, to provide an inventory of critical border obstacles together with examples of how these have been addressed on certain borders; an extensive public consultation; and four workshops with key stakeholders.

On 28 January 2016, the second of a series of four stakeholders’ workshop in the context of the Cross-Border Review was held in Brussels, bringing together 40 experts from various DG of the European Commission and from 13 different Member States.

Workshop participants included TEIN members Hynek Böhm,  Institut EuroSchola, Czech Republic; Anne Thevenet, Euro-Institute, Germany; and Ruth Taillon, the Centre for Cross Border Studies. Anne and Ruth feature in DG REGIO’s video of the event, which can be seen here: Video link
