The Focus Piece series offers analysis of economic, political economy and developmental issues across the EBRD’s regions and in the international context, which helps inform decision-makers and investors about the economies where we work.
The series is managed by the EBRD’s Economics, Policy and Governance department. It contains full-length articles, shorter notes and special reports by EPG staff, sometimes in cooperation with other specialists within the EBRD. It also includes papers and reports commissioned by the EBRD and prepared by external analysts. The views presented are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the EBRD.
