About this item

"Actors and institutions in localities and regions across the world are seeking prosperity and wellbeing amidst tumultuous and disruptive shifts and transitions: an increasingly globalised, knowledge-intensive capitalism; global financial instability, volatility and crisis; concerns about economic, social and ecological sustainability, climate change and resource shortages; new multi-actor and multi-level systems of government and governance and a re-ordering of the international political economy; stateausterity and retrenchment; and, new approaches to interventions, policy and institutions for development regionally and locally. Local and Regional Development provides an accessible, critical and integrated examination of local and regional developmenttheory, institutions and policy in its changing context. Local and regional development is examined through a thematic analytical framework, focusing on its rising importance and underlying purpose, principles and values, frameworks of understanding, approaches and interventions, and integrated approaches to local and regional development throughout the world.
