By examining and comparing such components as welfare, education and innovation policies, cultural dimensions, and labor market regulation, the contribution attends to both commonalities and divergences between the four Southern European countries, identifying the main reasons behind the poor performance of their economies and slow recovery from the Great Recession of 2007–2008. It also sheds light on the process of diversification among the four countries and addresses whether it did and still does make sense to speak of a uniquely Mediterranean model of capitalism.
