    Abstract

    This paper investigates the configuration, structural properties, development and effects of the interorganizational network structures induced by the regional cooperation with the EU in the Northern Dimension and the Black Sea Synergy initiatives on governance in the Russian northwestern and southern regions. The empirical evidence indicates that the northwestern region is more prone to sub-national integration with the EU and regional cooperation with the EU is more efficient, has stronger effects on regional governance patterns, and generates higher levels of social capital in the northwestern region than in the southern region due to horizontal differentiation and higher degree of decentralization, cohesion, intersectoral interaction, and intensity of cooperative effort in the northwestern regional interorganizational governance structures.
