Benchmarking regional policy in Europe: national regional policies

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Given these recent policy developments, the aim of this paper is to review national approaches to regional policy in the Member States and the Candidate Countries with a view to raising some discussion issues about possible future policy directions. The paper is in five further sections. Drawing on a range of EPRC research, the following four sections consider the regional policies of the EU Member States and the Candidate Countries , examining in turn: the main regional policy instruments; the degree to which policy is spatially targeted; levels of regional policy expenditure and policy delivery mechanisms. A final section (Section 6) draws together some themes and questions for discussion.
