Le programme LEADER en Europe centrale : apprentissage et pratiques de la gouvernance locale dans les campagnes post-socialistes

Abstract : This paper proposes a study of the European LEADER program (2007–2013) as a process of social innovation. It focuses on its implementation in two regions of Central Europe marked by their socialist heritage (Thuringia in eastern Germany and Baranya in Hungary) and the effects of the transition to a market economy initiated in the early 1990s. The diffusion of innovation can be seen in the ability of local actors to organize partnerships (local action groups, or LAGs) and delimit intervention areas (LEADER regions). These partnerships coordinate local development action by devising strategies and implementing concrete projects. The comparative approach presented here shows that learning experiences and practices of local governance are differentiated: At the state level, they depend first and foremost on the method of land management and the decentralization processes implemented in favor of local self-government. At the local level, social innovation is reflected in the structure and functioning of the partnerships that foster development action. The social network analysis conducted using methods of structural sociology shows that local-governance practices are sensitive to the effects of geographical context.
