Rural development theory and practice.


Rural development theory and practice.

McAreavey, Ruth.



164 pages



Routledge studies in development and society; 19


Drawing on, her personal experience as a rural development practitioner, McAreavey explores the link--more often the lack of a link--between the policy and practice of rural development. The underlying set of principles, she argues, relate to the governance of rural areas, and to understand both policy and practice as derived from governance clarifies why and how they do and do not work. Her case study is a pseudonymous cluster of settlements somewhere in England. Pivoting on that, she discusses aspects of power, micro-politics, and participation.
