  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: resilience, competitiveness policies, territorial development.

The paper studies the relationship between competitiveness policies and resilience. In particular, the work focuses on Lombardy in the programming period 2007-2013, broadly coinciding with the economic crisis. Economic data at the municipality and local labour system levels are used, jointly with Opencoesione policy data, properly reclassified. Following a territorial approach, different situations are evidenced within the region, in terms of impacts of the crisis and capability to attract policy development funds. Urban areas show a higher capability to attract projects and be resilient. At the same time, the detected effects of competitiveness policies on resilience are more important for smaller municipalities and smaller local labour systems.
