Abstract (Swedish)
The cross-border regions of are often described as the heart of European integration, creating a unique platform for integration. Yet, many regions are struggling with economic disparities and low regional productivity. The levels of productivity in a region are closely linked to the size of a market. Could increase integration increase the levels of productivity in European cross-border regions?

This study investigates the level of integration through a system of indicators of a regional integration (SIRI) in a cross-border setting. Analysing the preconditions in of integration and how these preconditions have affected the productivity in the two case studies, the Oresund region and the Vienna- Bratislava region.

Showing that despite cross-border cooperation has the Vienna-Bratislava region drastically increased its productivity, following the Slovak entry in the European Union. However, the region still suffers from vast differences in economic development and in political structures. The Oresund region has almost the opposite problem, with strong cross-border cooperation and low levels of productivity. (Less)
