Improving the European Semester by involving local and regional authorities
Overview of good practices - Study
This study aims to contribute to the backing of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) proposal for a Code of Conduct on the involvement of local and regional authorities (LRA), and to inform the implementation of the Code. It highlights good practices in LRA involvement in the European Semester in different Member States, as well as shortcomings and disbenefits arising from insufficient LRA involvement. Its methodology relies mainly on six case studies of different EU Member States and desk research (analyses of the key Semester reports and other EU-level research documents).
