Abstract: Even though globalization is no longer the central concept that was so popular a few years ago in the literature in the field and media, its impact culminating in turmoil on the financial markets and the economic and financial crisis of the past decade still continues to be a research topic for both economic theorists and practitioners. However, the post-crisis recovery brought about other significant issues, such as the refugee crisis, waves of Euroscepticism in several EU Member States, negative implications for the integration processes of Eastern European states in terms of level of convergence and catching-up process, the Brexit that require new approaches, and ask for effective solutions. The challenges that the economies of the EU countries are now facing, especially in peripheral areas, lead to the conclusion that they must be more resilient to negative shocks; the way forward for them should be only sustainable development and economic growth reducing gaps between countries or regions and supporting convergence.
