Through the b-solutions initiative, the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR) and the European Commission’s DG REGIO have gathered data and knowledge on cross-border cooperation and the legal and administrative obstacles that still pose limit to the interactions between neighbouring regions within Europe. 131 different border obstacles are compiled into several publications. These documents aim to inform stakeholders, policy makers, and other relevant actors at various levels about the daily challenges faced by citizens and local authorities in border regions. The publications also propose potential strategies and solutions to improve cross-border cooperation.

 

At this page you can find the following publications: 

  • three compendiums and one annex showcasing the obstacles and relative solutions of the 131 cases identified between 2018 and 2023; 

  • three thematic booklets containing analyses of the common obstacles and solutions in the following fields: Cross-border Public Services, Education and Employment, European Green Deal; 

  • two illustrated storytelling booklets that showcases 16 stories of border obstacles and their impact on citizens in border regions.
