  Add to Calendar 2019-04-11 15:00 2019-04-11 17:00 Europe/Paris The European Investment Bank and the ‘Mezzogiorno’ in the Context of Regional Development (1958-1973)

The final workshop will present the outcomes of the research project "The European Investment Bank and the ‘Mezzogiorno’ in the context of regional development (1958-1973)", aimed at investigating EIB activities in the South of Italy. The project has been financed by the STAREBEI (STAges de REcherche BEI) programme promoted by the EIB and conducted by Antonio Bonatesta, Associate Researcher at the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre (ADGRC), under the supervision of Federico Romero and Carlo Spagnolo.

The research strove to reconstruct various aspects of the Bank’s investments in Southern Italy: the EIB governing bodies’ internal debates on interventions and economic criteria; the problem of whether loans were aimed at market-oriented sectors or at public investment projects in infrastructure already supported by national government agencies or by the IBRD; how the financial bodies operating in the Mezzogiorno influenced the choices of the EIB; and the cooperation between the European Community bodies and the European Commission on EIB interventions.

EIB representatives of the STAREBEI program will take part in the workshop.
