Peripheral island regions' challenges in the post-COVID-19 recovery - 14WS21481

Thursday, October 14, 2021 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM · 1 hr. 30 min. (CET)


Mediterranean island regions are characterised by fragile economies that are highly dependent on tourism and their connectivity with the EU mainland. For these reasons, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a greater impact on EU islands on the grounds of a series of permanent constraints caused by their territorial discontinuity, remoteness and limited domestic market size. The event will focus on the challenges of EU peripheral islands and on possible scenarios to foster recovery and economic convergence processes with other European regions.
