The seminar will discuss the impact of ongoing EU integration on the income structure in EU economies, asking how EU membership affects income distribution both within and between national economies. EU membership can have an important impact on economic growth in poorer countries by accelerating the catch-up process. International labor flows affect labor markets in both sending and receiving countries. National governments retain the most important policy instruments, but EU institutions and EU-level policy are becoming increasingly important determinants of income distribution.
