Chapter 16: Supranational policy and economic shocks: the role of the EU’s structural funds in the economic resilience of regions

Adrian Healy and Gillian Bristow


Drawing on the experience of a number of EU Member States in implementing Structural Fund programmes during the 2008/09 financial crisis, this chapter explores the role that external interventions can play in promoting resilience and considers whether they are able to provide an additional buffering mechanism in times of crisis. This gives rise to a number of questions regarding as how such policies are governed, the role played by different actors at different levels of government and the ability of regions affected by shocks to make use of such support in times of crisis.
