    We argue that policy responses have been organised in primarily regional terms in recent years, but that a new concern for sub-regional policy responses is increasingly apparent. In taking the content of EU cohesion policy as our starting point, we find that a new focus at the micro-level is being promoted by the European Commission as a result of its policy aim to increase targeting, this in turn being viewed as a mechanism to respond more effectively to real disparities as they are currently experienced by EU citizens. By entering the debate through an analysis of the content of EU cohesion policy, we are then able to speculate on the future shape of territorial political mobilisation around this policy area and suggest an enhanced role for local-level actors.
