Introduction: From rural development to rural territorial

Philomena De Lima, Andrew Copus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This book reflects on how the economies, social characteristics, ways of life and global relationships of rural areas of Europe have changed in recent years. This reveals a need to refresh the concepts we use to understand, measure and describe rural communities and their development potential. This book argues that Europe has 'outgrown' many of the stereotypes usually associated with it, with substantial implications for European Rural Policy.
