A call for a strategy shift in Southern Europe

The policy brief on “Policy options for the development of peripheral regions and countries of Europe” as the second outcome of the WWWforEurope research project was published in December 2012.

On December 12th it was presented at a press conference in Vienna at WIFO which was held by the authors of the policy brief, Karl Aiginger, Peter Huber and Matthias Firgo.

In his presentation Karl Aiginger unfolded the analytical background of the policy brief which results in the call for a fundamental shift in development strategies for Greece, Spain and Portugal. A set of policy recommendations – for the countries themselves, for the European Union and for the high-income-countries of the union – outlined the framework of a new development strategy.
