Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the historical legacies and new horizons in regard to cross-border activities in the region by, firstly, providing a general overview of the most important socio-political developments and, secondly, further analyzing these developments from a legal point of view. Cross-border cooperation between Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino dates back to the end of World War II and can be subdivided into preparatory steps and three main phases. The first phase was characterized by ?soft? cooperation in the frame of two working communities including several alpine regions. The second phase concentrates on the three entities of Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino and aims at institutionalizing a ?Euroregion Tyrol?. The controversial nature of this approach and the negative attitude of national and regional representatives towards institutionalization impeded its full implementation, which led to the third phase, where concrete and functional cooperation in certain areas replaced institutionalization as the guiding line.

Keywords: alpine regions; cross-border cooperation; Euroregion Tyrol; historical legacies; institutionalization; new horizons; socio-political developments; South Tyrol; Trentino; World War II
