About this book


This book gives a clear insight into the EC's efforts to reduce regional inequalities in Europe, assessing the effectiveness of key EC policies such as the structural funds. It also analyses regional income disparities within the EC, the effects of economic integration on Europe's poorer areas and the strategic options of the less-developed regions and countries in Europe. The effects of the Single Market, the Common Agricultural Policy and Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) on poorer EC areas are also evaluated.
