Document of the European Convention on the regional and local dimension in Europe (29 January 2003)

Reflection paper on the regional and local dimension in Europe, forwarded to the Members of the European Convention on 29 January 2003 by its Praesidium, and intended to serve as a basis for the debate in the plenary session of the Convention on 6 and 7 February 2003. The paper analyses the various means of participation available to the regional and local authorities in drawing up and implementing Community decisions: partnership in the implementation of certain Community policies, in particular regional policy; participation in the decision-making process at both Community (Council and Committee of the Regions) and national (defining the national position) level; and the right to bring an action before the Court of Justice.
