This article examines some of the most relevant challenges to territorial cohesion in the European Union and its neighborhood. Through a mix of quantitative data and document analysis, the author provides an overview of demographic, migration and economic inequality aspects across the area with the scope of underlining that European territories are characterized by different performances. Such differences should be addressed by the next Cohesion Fund's long-term EU budget, in order to avoid further segmentations between territories. The author indicates also what should be some of the thematic priorities of the post-2020 territorial policies.
