This contribution is the authors’ version of a document commissioned by the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure in 2005 titled “The Guideline Study of Spatial Development alongside the Polish-German Border”. This work has been elaborated by a team from the Institute of Geography and Spatial Organization of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw as well as by invited experts from outside1. The study carried out by this team reflects the new socio-political and economic situation following Poland’s EU accession, as well as the highly dynamic nature of the social and economic processes ongoing in the country’s western borderland. The situation generates new opportunities and challenges for regional development policy. In particular, this concerns newly emerged prospects for establishing favourable conditions supporting cohesion and economic activation of the western part of the Polish borderland. This may be accomplished through such measures as, for example, launching investment projects within the framework of structural funds, decreasing barriers in cross-border traffic, as well as facilitating the free flow of people, goods, and services.
