European Week of Regions and Cities

The end of the trade-offs? Competing and converging for European democracy

This session will explore ways in which regions can compete and at the same time converge, taking into account recent developments in flagship EU policies, such as the twin transitions and the EU Green Deal. It will also consider the possible impacts of convergence and competitiveness policies in relation to geographies of happiness and of discontent, people and places ‘left behind’, and the implications for European democracy. The session is jointly organised by RSA Europe, ERSA and AESOP.
