    Abstract

    [Introduction]. As part of the Agenda 2000 package, the EU Structural Funds are currently going through a reform process in order to increase their effectiveness and to prepare the ground for the gradual integration of prospective new Member States into the EU’s structural policy. At the Cardiff European Council of June 1998, a political deadline was set to conclude the reforms by March 1999. Due to the complexity of the issue and the multiple actors involved, it is extremely difficult to predict the outcome of these negotiations. Nevertheless, by addressing 10 questions the reforms raise, this article aims to sketch the likely implications for the implementation of the Structural Funds in the next programming period, 2000-2006.
