It is with Europe’s citizens in mind that the ministers responsible for local and regional government of the 47 member States of the Council of Europe launched in 2009 a major survey of difficulties and obstacles that hamper the cooperation acrossthe borders and agreed in 2011 to further develop their cooperation with a view to reduce or remove those obstacles.This Manual is a compilation of both difficulties recorded across the frontiers and solutions found to overcome them. With the helpof ISIG of Gorizia (Italy) the data collected through a questionnaire have been systematised and organised in such a way as to enable all actors of crossborder cooperation to find examples that correspond to their situation and solutions that may help them to adopt the response to their needs.
