Economic convergence on different spatial levels : the conflict between cohesion and growth

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Whereas the economic gap between the European member states has decreased over the last decades, regional disparities have rather deepened. Dealing with the spatial impacts of various European policies, there is some evidence that these policies try to compensate the effects of growing competition in the common market by concentrating their efforts on urban growth poles within the underdeveloped countries. Doing that, the EU comes up to the two conflicting goals of growth and cohesion by promoting efficient economic development in the member states on the one hand and regional convergence on the European level on the other. - (IfL)
