Cite as: Davies, S., Bachtler, J., & Wishlade, F. (2012) Rethinking Regional Policy at National and European Levels: Short-Term Pressures and Long-Term Challenges. Paper for the 33nd meeting of the EoRPA Regional Policy Research Consortium. European Policies Research Centre, Glasgow

The aim of this report is to review recent changes in domestic regional policies across Europe, focusing on policy change over the 2011-12 period. The report has three main sections covering: an analysis of regional economic problems and trends in Europe over different timescales; a typology for understanding the different regional policy responses; and a review of recent changes to regional policies across 29 countries. The report is based on research in individual European countries and presented in a series of country reports that have been provided separately (see EoRPA Paper 12/2). The paper is supported by a series of comparative tables that summarise the main regional policy instruments (see EoRPA Paper 12/3).
