Cohesion poliy and structural funds aiming to make the regions develop on the same level has been an important instrument for the regions. Lobbying has become a popoular method to make your opinions heard. Many organisations try to influence officials from the Commission, memebers of the European Parlament and other committes. I will also discuss the future of the regions in the context of the proposal for a new European Constitution.
