Sustainable growth and ‘best practice’

The economic policies of EU member states pursue the goal of boosting their citizens’ prosperity and creating sustainable and inclusive growth. However, economic and fiscal policy approaches vary significantly in the individual countries. This broad range of policies offers an opportunity to comparatively evaluate different policy approaches and to learn from successful policies.

EconPol Europe research in this area deals with the following questions:

  • What are the determinants of productivity growth in the EU member states?
  • What is the impact of immigration on the labour market and the public sector and how can migrants be integrated into the labour market?
  • How do EU programmes affect national economic policy?
