A short post today about the Assembly of European Regions, which many RSA members will be familiar with. The AER has been promoting regionalism in Europe for 25 years and looks at issues from agriculture and rural development to the role of youth. More information about AER can be found here but the bottom line is that they bring together 270 regions from 33 countries to:

  • Promote the principle of subsidiarity and regional democracy;
  • Increase the regions' political influence within the European institutions;
  • Support the regions in the process of European enlargement and globalisation;
  • Facilitate interregional cooperation across wider Europe and beyond.
A full list of member regions can be found here - why not explore to find out more...
