Cross-border cooperation is a process that is still improving even though there are visible positive effects. However, there are also some negative effects that represent contemporary security challenges. The integration and creation of the Union of European countries was not an easy process, not only in the economic and legal sense but also in terms of the perception of that communion which had to be created and empowered in the citizens. Regional integration is an unstoppable process that is not only based on the establishment of a more secure and safer region, but rather to a greater extent has a goal in establishing business connections, which undoubtedly has significant positive effects, primarily in the fields of economy, social life, environmental protection and cultural relations. There is a significant influence on the political aspects as well. This research will examine some of the basics of important issues related to the importance of cross-border cooperation and the European Committee of the Regions (CoR).
