Abstract

This study is placed within a wide literature that is concerned with whether levels of per-capita income or labour productivity across economies converge or diverge in the long-run and using the NUTS-2 regions of EU-27 as an empirical context. It has addressed the issue of regional convergence using a data set that covers the period 1995–2006. An attempt is made to provide a detailed and thorough view of the issue of convergence across the regions of the EU-27 by considering various empirical approaches.
