Abstract

The aim of the paper is to try to understand if GDP convergence across the European Union also reflects a convergence in terms of human development. We built a composite index, the RsHdi (Regional specific Human development index), to rank the single regions of Europe in terms of human development and then focused our attention on the existence of convergence in the period from 1991 to 1996 and a possible increase in the dispersion of the RsHdi across the European Union
