Roberto EzcurraVicente RiosRoberto Ezcurra and Vicente RiosQuality of government and regional resilience in the European Union. Evidence from the Great Recession, published in Volume 98, Issue 3, June 2019, Pages 1267-1290.

Motivation: Through an elegant scientific approach, the paper examines the relationship between quality of government and regional resilience in the European Union during the Great Recession. The results show that the quality of government is an important factor when shaping the regional reaction to the crisis. The analysis clearly deonstates that higher quality of government is associated with greater regional resilience over the Great Recession. The paper gives emphasis to the role played in this context by spatial spillovers induced by the quality of government in neighbouring regions, which turn out to have an important role.

as the winner of the Martin Beckmann Prize as the best paper published in Papers in Regional Science in 2019.
