Series: Routledge Explorations in Development Studies
Dilemmas of Regional and Local Development aims to identify, diagnose and evaluate various approaches towards regional and local socio-economic development.
Over the course of the book, authors from twelve countries and four continents come together to review experiences and solutions related to regional development in a range of different economic, social and political systems. The first part of the volume focuses on the fundamentals of planning regional and local development, particularly focusing on theoretical solutions and development policy concepts. The second part is more applied, looking at practical instruments and solutions for shaping the local economy, and analysing effective development policy.
This book will be of interest to economics, geography, politics, and planning scholars and researchers working on regional sciences and local development.
