The origins of the EU Cohesion Policy are discussed and so are the main changes, such as the shift in policy-thinking and policy-logic leading to the place-based approach in the aftermath of the Barca-Report. The chapter discusses three major challenges shaping the interregional landscape and the EU Cohesion Policy context, namely Brexit, the Covid-19 pandemic as well as climate change policies and the Green Deal.
