Scenario > Double Shift

This is a future scenario* to show how the charter can create a shift in how Multi-level governance (MLG) is applied in Europe. It has been developed during the “Engagement Interviews”,  (Brussels – 03-04/2012).

* The following story is a fiction imagined during the co-creation process and does not engage the public authorities or stakeholders eventually mentioned.


Tobias Larsson, head of regional affairs (Denmark)

“The regions in Europe are cooperating with decision-making levels of government. In general the EU Commission and Member States are paying more attention to conversation, parliament and negotiation due to the new Multi-level Governance Charter, which has come into being in 2012. The MLG Charter informs the MLG training program, which is providing dynamic workshops to key members of the governmental system. These people are the ‘change agents’ to create the culture of MLG in the EU. There are representatives from local and regional governments working with national levels and EU Commissions. Decisions have shifted from central state level from Brussels. Then another shift has occurred where member states are working closer with local and regional levels.”
