    Abstract

    In this study it is explored which ideas the EU cohesion policy and the EU water policy provide for the introduction of management by objectives in the EU rural development policy. Such an introduction may give rise to both flexibilities and inflexibilities. On the one hand management by objectives could provide more policy discretion to national and regional authorities in designing their own measures and projects that better fit with local circumstances and needs. On the other hand high coordination costs for the central authority could emerge due to many heterogeneous measures and projects.
