Economic Crisis and the Resilience of Regions: A European Study

About the eBook

This insightful book provides an astute analysis of how resilient multiple regional economies across Europe were to the global economic crisis of 2008-9. Assessing the impact and geography of the crisis, this book offers a cross-comparative study of how regional economies were affected, as well as an exploration of the role of local and regional policy in influencing economic resilience.

The different experiences seen across Europe throughout the economic crisis raise a number of important questions: why were some regions more resilient to the crisis than others? What is meant when discussing a resilient economy? How might local and regional policy-makers help support the resilience of their economies? The expert contributors take these crucial questions into account, presenting detailed case studies using quantitative and qualitative research data to analyse how the crisis affected various European regions.

Economic Crisis and the Resilience of Regions will be an essential read for academics, researchers, and policymakers interested in the concept of regional economic resilience, its measurement, and the factors influencing it, as well as for analysts interested in the geographical impact of the 2008-9 global economic crisis.
