Three options to the current policy framework merit serious discussion: One is renationalisation. A second option is reallocation within the EU budget in favour of currently underfunded policy areas, such as internal security, research, risk surveillance and external relations. A third option is a radical reform of Structural Policy, discarding the intermediate objective of convergence but giving greater emphasis to the ultimate goal of cohesion. Under this formula, support would have a trans-national dimension.
