THE ROLE OF  THE SOCIAL POLICY IN CREATING THE IMAGE 

OF THE REGION 

(THE CIVIL SOCIETY) 


Abstract 

The development of particular regions located in the EU member states is intended to 

establish a strong unified territory that would be co-inhabited by different communities. On 

the other hand, the harmonious growth of the entire EU is guaranteed by the realization of the 

regional cohesion policy concerning member states and their regions. Therefore regional policy became a specific area of the EU accession negotiations with Poland.  

The level of structural fund absorption in Polish regions has become a focus of attention too. Poland’s aim to participate in the realization of  common regional policy required 

adjusting Polish economy, social and local policies to meet the EU standards during the preaccession period. Polish local governments have been obliged to become aware of and adopt a 

strategic approach to their administrative function and the ability to influence local economies 

actively. There has been, however, a great diversity in progress that Polish local governments 

have made in this field, both on a national and regional scale.  

Due to the Poland’s accession to the European Union the regional economic growth 

has become a planned and predictable process that is implemented by local governments, civil 

communities, and private and public sectors through cohesive action, development strategy 

for every area, and many different programmes and initiatives.
