Local and regional development is an increasingly global issue. For localities and regions, the challenge of enhancing prosperity, improving wellbeing and increasing living standards has become acute for localities and regions formerly considered discrete parts of the ???developed??? and ???developing??? worlds. Amid concern over the definitions and sustainability of ???development???, a spectre has emerged of deepened unevenness and sharpened inequalities in the development prospects for particular social groups and territories.

Local and Regional Developmentengages and addresses the key questions: what are the principles and values that shape definitions and strategies of local and regional development? What are the conceptual and theoretical frameworks capable of understanding and interpreting local and regional development? What are the main policy interventions and instruments? How do localities and regions attempt to effect development in practice? What kinds of local and regional development should we be pursuing?

This book??addresses the fundamental issues of ???what kind of local and regional development and for whom????, frameworks of understanding, and instruments and policies. It outlines what a holistic, progressive and sustainable local and regional development might constitute before reflecting on its limits and political renewal. With the growing international importance of local and regional development, this book is an essential student purchase, illustrated throughout with maps, figures and case studies from Asia, Europe, and Central and North America.

Local and regional development -- What kind of local and regional development and for whom? -- Concepts and theories of local and regional development -- Institutions : government and governance -- Mobilising indigenous potential -- Attracting and embedding exogenous resources -- Local and regional development in practice -- Conclusions.
