ConferenceKeynote at Sixth European Conference on Evaluation of Cohesion Policy


A policy imperative for the EU is cohesion, integration and a drive to reduce the disparity in social and economic development across member states.1 This is an issue for all citizens within the EU who provide the resources through taxation that fund the expenditure on European policy. It constitutes, as I will suggest, the logic of policy intention. As custodians and distributors of these resources, the various DGs, but in particular, the DG with responsibility for the development of the regions (DG Regio) is coming under pressure, indeed, is anxious itself, through its evaluation arm, to increase the effectiveness and consider the focus of its work.
