    Abstract

    Abstract: The purpose of the article is to analyze strategies for cross-border integration in the Øresund Region. The point of departure is that the development of strategies for cross-border integration is dependent on the development on both the general level in the EU and deregulation of economy and business on the global level. In this respect, the article points out the importance of market forces and their influence on institutional change. Recent economic crises
    have put growth center stage at both the national and regional level, and have called for regional development programs on both the Swedish and Danish sides of the Sound. The strengths and weaknesses of the Øresund Region’s ‘traditional’ and new institutions as instruments for change are examined. The article identifies and discusses the structures, institutions, and players which are the driving forces in the field between markets and institutions.
