Zgajewski, Tania, and Hajjar, Kalila. (2005) The Lisbon Strategy: Which failure? Whose failure? And why?. Egmont Paper, no. 6, May 2005. [Policy Paper]
Pessimistic comments are crowding the media about the failure of the Lisbon strategy. At the end of 2004, the latest report of the Kok group has emphasized “the failure of the Lisbon strategy”. There is now a debate about the remodeling or the rationalization of the strategy. Before taking decisions, it would be opportune to organize a reflection about the extent of the failure and its causes. Otherwise any reform runs the risk of being not adapted or even counterproductive. Different questions must be examined. What is the real competitiveness problem? Is there a real need for an EU initiative? Do the different characteristics of the approach chosen in 2000 make sense?
