The aim of the chapter is to challenge the assumption that top-down approaches to economic development and growth are the best way forward for rural areas. Looking at the work of the current Leader programme and Leader project examples, the chapter measures the impacts of small-scale, bottom-up approaches to foster rural development. It considers the importance of the Leader approach as a key component of the current rural policy framework.
