Protocol No. 3 to the Madrid Convention provides for the legal status, establishment and operation of “Euroregional Cooperation Groupings”. Composed of local authorities and other public bodies from the Contracting Parties, the aim of a grouping is for transfrontier and interterritorial co-operation to be put into practice for its members, within the scope of their competences and prerogatives. Under the Protocol the Council of Europe may draw up model national laws for facilitating adoption by the Contracting Parties of appropriate national legislation for enabling the “Euroregional Co-operation Groupings” to operate effectively.
