European border regions are affected by higher levels of unemployment, poorer health, twice the level of ageing and more poverty. Living near to a border region means fewer opportunities in the field of employment, mobility, health care and welfare. This is because policy is predominantly national in its orientation. As a result, crossing your country’s borders can be a daunting task.
