How does the LEADER/CLLD approach contribute to rural development in Slovenia?
This publication tries, via participatory research and analysis of debates and practices, to clarify how the LEADER/CLLD approach is contributing to rural development in Slovenia.
The focus of this publication is to search for answers to the complex question: How does the LEADER/CLLD approach contribute to rural development in Slovenia?
Contributing authors sought to find answers by carrying out a critical analysis of existing theoretical debates, in-depth analysis of diverse data sources and systematic field research examining eleven Local Action Groups.
The research activities actively involved different stakeholders and actors who could significantly impact the implementation of the LEADER/CLLD approach and programme. The participatory research approach was based on critical and reflective consideration of the real contribution of the LEADER/CLLD approach to lifelong learning in rural settings.
The publication is in Slovenian, with a detailed summary of the findings in English.
