Abstract

POLAND The Basis of Regionall Policy i the Li@t of n European Integation Teresa mbsh* The notion of regional policy is ambiguous. Its content is variable, both in terms of the geographical region covered, and in the policy areas covered. Yet regional policy has come to have a specific meaning in the context of European economic integration. It applies to both economic and political relationships.

Provisions relating to regional policy are included in the EC treaties, under Title XIV, 'Economic and Social Cohesion'.[ The title itself is significant, and points to the basic political aims of this part of the EC Treaty. Article 158 (ex Article 130a) provides as follows: In order to promote its overall harmonious development, the Community shall develop and pursue its actions leading to the strengthening of its economic and social cohesion. In particular, the Community shall aim at reducing disparities between the various regions and the backwardness of the least favoured regions or islands, including rural areas. Article 159 (ex Article 130b) also imposes obligations on Member States: Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan. Poland. The
