Creating an effective cohesion policy for Europe 2020
Andrzej Paczoski , Giuseppe Cirella
AbstractCohesion policy is one of the most important elements of the European Union’s (EU) integrated processes. Evaluating this type of mechanism can show the efficiency of European policy’s convergence processes and its elimination of development inequalities between regions (i.e., countries) [Molle, 2007]. European funds cost taxpayers money that is invested on convergence information (i.e., the classification of country-by-country datasets). The last financial crises brought a significant negative influence on the European economy. One of the options has been to offer more autonomy (i.e., responsibility) for each country’s economic policy. Europe 2020 Strategy brought a new challenge for its Member States. There has been a varying pace of success in obtaining strategic goals throughout the EU. Countries should try to seek opportunities in endogenous growth; cohesion policy can assist with such development. This paper presents only preliminary findings.
