Indeed, the definition of development as used in the PRIDE project reflects this increasing endogenous and local/territorial emphasis: ‘a sustained process of economic, social cultural political and environmental change leading to improved living conditions in a defined geographical area’. 4 These theories viewed together Looking at these various developments of theory together elucidates how the transformation of society into an increasingly global, complex and diffuse milieu has influenced the way that we conceptualize our environment.

At the local level, local authorities, as democratically elected bodies, were traditionally dominant actors, taking decisions for the whole community that they represented. In Spain, the LEADER programme was the most important rural development scheme in the 1990s and it was more or less replicated by the PRODER – the national government’s equivalent programme. In Germany also, the eastern parts of the country, where communism prevailed until 1989, had had no history of community-based local action and the partnership approach to planning and development had encountered some difficulties.

Thus this brief postscript to the 1999 literature review confirms that the local partnership approach remains as central to rural development thinking as it was at the start of the PRIDE research project 3 years ago. 5 A Theoretical Perspective The 1999 literature survey also provided a starting point for the subsequent research by introducing theoretical contexts for the study of partnership. In this respect the aim was not to overcome the problems of eclecticism or to produce a final theory of partnerships.
