This chapter explains how the Europe community, later European Union, has dealt with mountains in its projects and policies. It follows its various sectoral policies (mostly agriculture, environment, transportation) for examining the role recognized to the mountains, the transformation of its regional policies into cohesion policies where the territorial element was progressively taken into account, and the rise of a concern for a common regional planning policy. However, if the EU was close to adopt the category of the mountain for its regional policy around 2002, at the end, the representations of mountains in Europe proved to be too heterogeneous to impose a unique vision and a common model as a political strategy. To address the question of the diversity of mountains in Europe has been launched the idea to work at the mountain range level, called mountain massifs.

Keywords:   Europe, EU, agriculture, environmental policy, regional Policy, territorial cohesion, mountain massifs, mapping, re-scaling
