Study day on the "cross-border prefect"

On 20 June, CHEMI (Centre for High-Level Studies of the Ministry of the Interior) hosted a day of discussions on the “cross-border prefect”.

The 20 or so prefects and senior civil servants from the ministry who attended were able to discuss with representatives of the MOT, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the DG REGIO and the CGET, the issues relating to cross-border territories, the new 2014-2020 cohesion policy, the redefinition of the State’s role with respect to them (already called for by the parliamentary report of 2010) and the support that the MOT can give to the decentralised departments of the State. The need to provide training to civil servants who take up posts in border regions was reaffirmed; in this respect, the MOT also contributed to a training session of sub-prefects on cross-border cooperation on 11 June.
