Regional Divergence in Poland as Compared with Selected European Countries
Languages of publication
Internal disparities are a characteristic feature of modern economies. The existing considerable developmental differences among regions or states hamper co-operation and lead to social tensions. Therefore, for many years efforts have been undertaken to accelerate the convergence of regional and national economies. Since the 1990s, these efforts have been supported by the European Union’s cohesion policy. The purpose of this paper is to explore the degree of interregional disparity in Poland in comparison with other EU countries. It is this degree that determines current cohesion policy and the eligibility for non-repayable financial aid from the EU.
