rural areas best be arranged? In this chapter, we explore how public support for collective learning is arranged in two rural areas of Germany: Sankt Wendeler Land in the federal state of Saarland and the Oberlausitzer Heide- und Teichlandschaft in the Free State of Saxony . After introducing the case study areas, a framework to analyse and reflect on arrangements to support collective learning in rural areas will be presented. Then, the methods used for data collection and analysis will be described, and some background information on the organisation of support for collective learning in Germany will be provided. It will be shown how public support is operationalized and how beneficiaries evaluate the arranged support in the case study areas. Subsequently, differences in institutional arrangements to support collective learning in the respective case study areas will be discussed. It will be shown that in order to arrange public support for collective learning successfully, the operation of public support programmes needs to be delegated to agents embedded within the area. These agents need to dispose of access to wider networks of groups and networks within and outside the area. This way, they are able to include a wide range of development actors and connect them to the appropriate supporters. In this process, the roles of shared leadership is crucial (Horlings 2012). An arrangement that works well in one area can therefore not be used as a blueprint to make arrangements in another area. [less ▲]

The concept of ‘Biosphere Reserve’ is a tool that must be located between conservation and economic development, as it promotes a sustainable regional endogenous development and takes the holistic economical, socio-cultural, political, environmental and democratic rights into account. The following identification of conflicts in the biosphere reserve Bliesgau is very important for the further development of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau in Saarland, Germany as well as for establishing and developing other new biosphere reserves. Within the framework of the research, expert interviews were conducted with twelve representatives of different institutions in Saarland in the period from 26 November 2009 to 15 December 2009. Due to the targeted diversity of the experts, governmental as well as non-governmental institutions were involved. Furthermore, organizations were contacted whose opinions concerning the Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau differ in public. [less ▲]

International labour migration is one of the main challenges in the 21st century for rural areas within Europe. So far, rural areas have not been in the focus of research. The project DERREG, financed by EU FP7, has investigated this phenomenon. Qualitative interviews with international labour migrants have been carried out in the rural border area of Merzig-Wadern, Saarland in the South-West of Germany. The results of these interviews on motivation, working situation, professional experience, family background, social networks, future plans, satisfaction and suggestions of improvements regarding the situation of migrants show heterogeneity, in comparison with urban migrants. However, it can be concluded that the international labour migrants are a benefit to communities in rural areas if they are well integrated. [less ▲]

Forschungsprojekte und -studien zum Thema internationale Migration tendieren zu einer Fokussierung auf Großstädte als Drehkreuze globaler Migrationsströme. Dem ländlichen Raum kommt dabei hauptsächlich die Rolle als Quellgebiet eben dieser Ströme zu. Insbesondere ländlich-periphere Regionen werden dabei mit einer Konzentration von Problemlagen wie Überalterung, Abwanderung sowie wirtschaftlicher und infrastruktureller Ausdünnung konnotiert, die als Push-Faktoren auf Abwanderungswillige wirken. Im Rahmen des Beitrages werden anhand der zwei Fallbeispiele Ostsachsen und Saarland die gegenläufigen Tendenzen – nämlich internationale Immigration in schrumpfende ländliche Räume – untersucht. Es wird analysiert, welches Potenzial internationale Immigration für die Entwicklung und Wettbewerbsfähigkeit ländlicher Regionen im Zeitalter der Globalisierung darstellt. Die vorgestellten Ergebnisse entstammen dem im Rahmen des 7. EU-Forschungsrahmenprogramms laufenden Projekt DERREG – Developing Europe’s Rural Regions in the Era of Globalization. Mittels qualitativer Interviews wird in dem Beitrag folgenden Fragen nachgegangen: Welche internationalen Immigration existieren im ländlichen Raum? Welche Chancen bietet die Migration in ländliche Räume für die Räume selbst und auch für die Migranten? Wie verhandeln Migranten die eigene geographische Situation abseits international angebundener urbaner Zentren? Wie gestaltet sich das Verhältnis zur lokalen Bevölkerung, die sich aus den ‚Gebliebenen’ zusammensetzt? Es zeichnet sich ab, dass neo-klassische Ansätze zur Erklärung internationaler Migration nicht einfach auf schrumpfende ländliche Regionen zu übertragen sind, da die dortigen Arbeitsmärkte weder durch branchenübergreifende Unterversorgung mit Arbeitskräften noch durch wirtschaftliche Dynamik gekennzeichnet sind. Auch neuere Ansätze, die ethnische Gemeinschaften, familiäre Bindungen und soziale Netzwerke betonen, eignen sich wenig für die Erklärung von internationaler Migration in den ländlichen Raum. Hier ist die Anzahl an internationalen Zuwanderern zu gering, um solche Bindungen, Gemeinschaften und Netzwerke als Erklärungsmoment heranziehen zu können. Eher gilt es, ländlichen Raum als Nische für bestimmte Typen von internationalen Migranten zu erkennen, die ländliche Spezifika für sich nutzen. Hiermit könnten ländliche Räume im Themenfeld um internationale Migration neue Bedeutung gewinnen. [less ▲]

All over the world, UNESCO biosphere reserves are designated in order to protect regionally distinctive landscapes. This designation represents a significant up-valuation of nature reserves and landscape conservation areas, forests and other mostly rural landscapes. In cases where biosphere reserves include urban areas, additional objectives are established such as the development of urban-rural-relationships. The Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau which is a sustainable model region responds to this challenge. Located in a rural part of Saarland, the biosphere Bliesgau is still facing further challenges which are connected to the designation as a UNESCO biosphere reserve. This designation entails many obligations that are conditions and restrictions for the actors on the one hand and that provide opportunities for key personalities to make progress in achieving their aims concerning nature conservation on the other hand. Hence, not only prospects but potential for conflict emerged which complicates regional development in rural Saarland. A primary survey in the biosphere reserve allowed for the identification of the presented conflicts. [less ▲]

International foreign home migration is one of the main challenges in the 21st century also for rural areas. So far, rural areas have not been in the focus of research. The project DERREG, financed by EU FP7, has investigated this phenomenon. Qualitative interviews with international foreign home owners have been carried out in the rural border area of Merzig-Wadern, Saarland in the South-West of Germany. The article shows results of the biographical interviews on the housing situation and the satisfaction of the migrants. How do the migrants feel in the rural Saarland? How do they assess their situation as foreign home owners? According to the short literature review, description of the case study area and research paradigm these questions are pursued. [less ▲]
