English abstract:
This paper explores a possible direction for enabling trans-national cooperation in Europe through forms of spatial planning harmonisation. The specific case considered is that of the trans-national border area located in the wider Alpine-Adriatic context, comprising Carinthia (Austria), Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) and Slovenia. Starting from a general analysis of spatial planning systems and identification of operational difficulties which may emerge within any one Member State's planning system-and which then may be compounded in a trans-national context-the paper considers the establishment of a "shared knowledge base" as well as a "shared vision" between the Member States as preconditions to fostering trans-national cooperation.
