A reformed objective 2 and the Lisbon Strategy: consequences for Swedish policymaking

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This research carried out by EPRC was prepared to respond to the expected shifts in the future Cohesion Policy of the European Union. The following was taken into consideration:

the likelihood of Cohesion Policy becoming much more oriented towards growth and will, in a much more profound way than in the past, contributing directly to the fulfilment of the Lisbon strategy; geography becoming a less important component of any replacement of Objective 2; many aspects related to the future delivery of policy being unclear, with in particular the possibility of Cohesion support being subject to some sort of Community Framework under the open method of coordination; uncertainties regarding any future funding criteria which may be used to allocate resources from the EU to the Member States and, thereafter, from the Member States to the sub-national level.
