European Policy Lessons in the Process of Regional Transformation in Hungary
Abstract:The applicability of selected aspects of the European regional policy approach to Hungary is analysed in the present paper. The balanced approach of European regional development - one combining structural change with performance improvement of existing actors - is contrasted with the one-sided Hungarian approach - one restricting modernisation efforts to facilitating structural change and attracting new economic actors. The paper - funded by the INCO-Copernicus - argues that in order to achieve the required regional transformation, besides institution building, strengthening, i.e. “empowering”, existing regional development institutions is also necessary.
