Association of European Border Regions / Association des Régions frontalières européennes


In line with its statutes, the AEBR works on behalf of the European border and cross-border regions with the aim to:

  • highlight their special problems, opportunities, responsibilities and activities;
  • represent their common interests vis-à-vis national and international parliaments, bodies, authorities and institutions;
  • initiate, support and coordinate cooperation between the regions throughout Europe;
  • promote exchanges of experience and information with a view to identifying and coordinating common interests among the diverse range of cross-border problems and opportunities, and to propose possible solutions.

The activities of AEBR involve:

  • implementing programmes and projects, to apply for funds and to receive and to dispose of them;
  • to organise events that deal with cross-border problems;
  • to help to solve cross-border problems and to support special activities;
  • to prepare and implement common campaigns within the networks;
  • to inform European political bodies and the public about cross-border issues.

 

 

Le point de vue du praticien – Éloge de la coopération transfrontalière: Entretien avec Martín Guillermo-Ramírez, secrétaire général de l’ARFE :

L’Association des Régions Frontalières d’Europe (ARFE, www.aebr.eu) réunit la moitié des quelque 200 régions frontalières et transfrontalières recensées à ce jour en Europe – communautés de travail, eurorégions, etc. Son objectif est de promouvoir la coopération transfrontalière, y compris par-delà les frontières extérieures de l’UE… où elle se heurte toutefois à des obstacles spécifiques.
