Published in ‘Does EU Membership Facilitate Convergence? The Expierience of the EU’s Eastern Enlargement – Volume II’
Edited by Landesmann, Michael, Székely, Istvan P.
About the book:
The book analyses how EU membership influenced the convergence process of member countries in the Baltics, Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe.
It explores the workings of channels such as trade, investment, financial integration, labour, laws and institutions.
The paper of Istvan Janos Toth and Miklos Hajdu presents a new method that is based on hard micro-level data (data of 3.6 million public tenders) for measuring the institutional convergence. This approach focuses on the control of corruption risks in public procurement in European countries.
