This paper examines the Euroregions and focuses on the Carpathian Euroregion as a case study of the evolving concept of transboundary cooperation.
First, major obstacles and problems to Euroregion success are being created by national governments concerned that the Euroregions are too distant from their central authority and, by definition, seeking to diminish and undermine national power by undertaking transboundary cooperation with neighbouring states.
Euroregions in general and the CER specifically are seen from their respective capital cities as making economic and political decisions and policies that should be the rightful domain of the central government.

Located in the "three-country triangle" on the Polish, Czech and German borders, the Neisse-Nisa-Nysa Euroregion is not the first region to join forces voluntarily in a link based on common interests.

One model project in the Euroregion which has already had a practical impact on daily life, but which is quite out of the ordinary, is the establishment of the cross-border Schkola Hartau.

The cross-Channel Euroregion was created in 1991 as a partnership between Kent, Nord-Pas-de-Calais (France) and the Belgian regions of Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia.
The Euroregion partners hoped that closer collaboration would allow a more coordinated response to the opportunities presented by the Channel Tunnel project and would also enable the region to confront its economic problems more effectively.
However, although its internal borders have become more permeable, the Euroregion has failed to develop as a coherent economic or political entity and its weaker sub-regions have gained least from the Channel Tunnel project and the associated improvements to the transport infrastructure.
