Abstract [en]

This paper primarily discusses strategies for the development of small and medium-sized cities and towns in Europe Union. The roles and potentials of small and medium-sized cities and towns are analyzed frstly. Then it primarily summarizes the growing concerns and related policies on medium-sized cities and towns in the following part, which refected the ambitions to integrate urban issues within the EU policy framework. Some of the major policy documents and programmes as well as related normative concepts of the EU policy framework are critically analyzed. The so-called‘urban dimension’is emerging in various strategies within the EU policy framework, whereas its specifc design and territorial focus, also in relation to small and medium-sized cities and towns, remains to be rather vague.
