Summary/Abstract: With the era of globalization, regions that lag behind are becoming ever more problematic worldwide – and intervention-like central development initiatives usually fail to deal with the problems. So-called immanent programmes building on bottom-up initiatives and aiming to involve local communities have been successful alternatives for decades now. In Europe, the LEADER initiative has been operating since the early 1990s. The relevance of local knowledge in such cases is introduced via a case study coming from a successful European LEADER local action group. In our article, anomalies existing within the Hungarian experience will be highlighted as well.
