Regional Convergence In Europe And The Redesign Of Cohesion Policy. In order to achieve a satisfactory degree of socio-economic cohesion, the European authorities have long recognized the importance of convergence in per capita levels of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The question of whether there is regional convergence is simple in the abstract, but quite complex in empirical application. One issue is the time frame Theoretical treatments generally refer to long-run tendencies, but data may be limited to one or two decades and focus on the end points, making it difficult to separate short from long run trends. promoted as a “public good” delivered by the European community. As such, the empirical evidence on regional convergence can provide us with an aggregate picture of whether and how effectively the cohesion goals are being fulfilled (Esposti and Bussoletti ; Rodriguez-Pose and Fratesi ; European Commission ). Given the contradictory.

The objective is twofold. On the one hand, the paper conducts an update assessment of regional disparities in the EU bringing together the most frequent instruments used. Economic convergence or non-convergence between countries and regions continues to attract analytical attention in Europe.

To converge in real terms and not only in terms of nominal variables is one of the basic aims of the European Union Treaty.
