Une Analyse Exploratoire Des Disparités Régionales Dans L'Europe Élargie
The aim of this paper is to study the regional inequalities in the enlarged European Union using Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis applied to per capita GDP for 258 European regions over the period 1995-2000. Strong evidence in favor of global and local autocorrelation as well as spatial heterogeneity is found for the wealth distribution. We also show that the enlargement process leads to a new North-West/East polarization scheme instead of the previous results obtained in the literature highlighting a North/South polarization scheme. Implications for regional development and cohesion policies are finally explored.
