Globalisation: regional and rural development in Eastern Europe
Globalizacja - rozwój regionów i obszarów wiejskich w Europie Wschodniej
Summary: It is now generally recognised that despite the reality of a global world, local variations persist. Indeed, individual communities appear to respond to the inevitability of a global competition by highlighting their distinct social-cultural and economic characteristics and by safeguarding traditional political behaviour and Ťways of getting things doneť. This approach is adopted to interpret the East European transition which exhibits a general tendency towards pluralism, privatisation, foreign investment and EU membership; while retaining many distinctive local characteristics with the ŤBalkan Problemť as perhaps the clearest example. The paper examines the trends in East European politics over the past decade before dealing with progress in regional and rural development. This is seen as a crucial facet of the transition, given the inevitability of larger and more highly mechanised farms and reduced labour demands. Yet while regional and rural planning is clearly essential - and is now part of the discourse which candidate countries must pursue in their dealings with Bruxelles - there are no model solutions. The paper offers a number of perspectives and approaches which will have to be evaluated at the grass-roots by each civil society as part of the ongoing dialogue between the global and the local.
Słowa kluczowe (w języku angielskim): regional development, rural areas, East European politics.
