Local partnerships for rural development: the European experience.

Book cover for Local partnerships for rural development: the European experience.


This book is an edited version of the unpublished final report of the PRIDE research project that ran from February 1999 to January 2001 and was concerned with partnerships for rural integrated development in Europe. The research focused on the rural development experience of 6 member states of the EU, namely Finland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, UK, with some reference to the Irish Republic and Luxembourg. After a general introduction (chapter 1), the book provides a literature review and theoretical framework (chapter 2), a consideration of the methodology and the execution of the research (chapter 3), the findings of an extensive survey of 330 partnerships across the 8 countries (chapter 4), a report of the study of practice (chapter 5) and study of impact (chapter 6) undertaken in 24 case study areas, and a number of conclusions and recommendations (chapter 7). The book has a subject index.
