Abstract: 
The aim of the paper is to analyse how the regional convergence, polarization and mobility have evolved in the EU from 1980 onwards. Using both simple and weighted indicators, the paper not only shows that all these three processes have been going on but that there are no sings of polarization and that the mobility degree (taken into account the whole period) is quite high. At the same time, the paper shows that the rate of convergence and the degree of mobility have declined, rising doubts about what may happen in the near future.
