    Economic – and even more social – convergence and divergence are always in concern of policy-making and research field of social sciences. The examination and research of territorial and income disparities are in focus of today’s development and growth economics. In this study my objective is to examine the existing regional disparities, convergence and divergence processes in the enlarged European Union analysing macroeconomic indicators. The focus of this paper is to define and classify the terms and concepts of convergence as well as regional economic growth and development by giving an overview about them. In today’s enlarged EU with a large set of economically and socialogically heterogeneous regions – that have to be coped with – the role and function of regional and cohesion policy have evaluated as a tool of both strengthening regional nivellation and agglomeration. That is why the future prospects of the European integration as regards its competitiveness and sustainability etc. in the long run depend on the effectiveness of regional policy and its appropriate distribution of funds on a large scale.
