<p>The way in which Cohesion Policy is perceived by citizens is a crucial issue for the process of European identity-building. Based on the idea that citizens’ perceptions depend on the local socioeconomic context in which Cohesion Policy is implemented, the paper seeks to define alternative combinations of the economic, social and institutional features of different local policy implementation settings, and to identify them empirically in European NUTS-2 regions. The results highlight a broad variety of policy settings, whose characteristics are relevant to the outcome of Cohesion Policy implementation.</p> <p><a href="http://www.tandfonline.com:80/pb-assets/tandf/Migrated/CRES2_VideoAbstract_Transcript.pdf" target="_blank">Read the transcript</a></p> <p><a href="https://vimeo.com/250412700" target="_blank">Watch the video on Vimeo</a></p>
