Abstract [en]

In a global context the traditional democratic process is facing new challenges. Scholars are talking about a transition from government to governance, where local and regional networks as well as international collaboration are an important part in how regional policy is produced and implemented. In this paper the processes in regional projects funded by the European Union are considered, and related to the traditional democratic process. The study has been fulfilled through informant interviews with representatives from four EU-projects. The interviews are supplemented by a qualitative text analysis of current statutes. Results show that the processes can be quite flexible but always has to be carefully formulated and motivated in the application for funds. However, the flexibility seems to be limited by the public ethics formulated in the traditional democratic process.
