Since borders that have been closed for over forty years are opening up, Central Europe is undergoing dramatic changes and facing huge challenges. Situated in Central Europe, the Vienna-Bratislava-Györ area straddling Austria, Hungary and Slovakia explores new opportunities for co-operation and integration. The book gives a fascinating view of the practice of European policy making on transnational level, at the same time treating this area is a laboratory for EU territorial cohesion policy. It investigates ways of conceptualising space, thereby identifying its potentials on a transnational level. In addition, it explores how this polycentric region is dealing with its territorial potential to play in a higher league in the competition between places as forming the core of a possible Global Economic Integration Zone in Central Europe.
