Article 174 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU states that the Union should pursue actions leading to the strengthening of its economic, social and territorial cohesion as well as to reduce regional disparities. The cohesion policy of the EU aims at addressing these aims. An own-initiative report on building blocks for a post-2020 cohesion policy is to be voted during the June plenary session. It gives an overview of the priorities for the future of cohesion policy.
