Abstract

This 2005 paper evaluates the Lisbon Strategy that aimed to transform the European Union into the world’s most dynamic and competitive economy between the years 2000 and 2010. The paper notes that the European Union is not meeting the strategy’s goals due to a sluggish internal market, lack of reform in national labor markets, and the failure to maximize trade relations. For a better chance of success, the European Union requires better enforcement mechanisms and the Lisbon Strategy needs to become a national priority in individual member countries.

Keywords: Lisbon Strategy, European Union, economy
