A bit of background: you know, every article will receive a series of different tags, useful to reference the piece, useful for on site research and for search-engines. Tags will be both free and included in some lists. Among these lists there will be one with all the countries of the world. But a transnational media also have to include a list of geographical zones or regions in the world.
Do we say Middle East or Near East? Asia or Asia-Pacific? South-Eastern Europe or Balkans?
In the attached file (in French but easily understandable), you'll find three list of zones: the first one is a broader one, the second the one I propose for us, the third the world according to European Commission website.
What do you think? Please focus your comments on the second list. I really think that is a subject that is linked to our culture(s). That's why your opinion matters!
