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 ▲]

Raising collective agency is key to successful place-based development approaches. Existing policy arrangements have, however, been criticised, suggesting a need to effectuate more collaborative modes of governance. This paper shall contribute to a better understanding of how public support can best be arranged to raise collective agency for a more collaborative mode of governance in rural areas. The paper elaborates on findings of empirical investigations conducted within the EU FP7 project DERREG. It will be shown that differences in effectuating more collaborative modes of governance can partly be ascribed to different political dynamics, economic and demographic situations as well as the presence of a shared sense of place. To raise collective agency effectively requires a joint reconsideration and restructuring of the division of roles and tasks, including those of public administration. This can be supported by facilitating joint reflexivity among development actors and giving room for collaborative leadership and operational flexibility within policy arrangements [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 ▲]

Against the background of the enlargement of the European Union, Ireland is often mentioned as a key example for the Central and Eastern European countries of a successful European integration process. Thereby, the development of the complete Republic of Ireland since the EU accession in 1973 is analyzed. If you survey separately the economic and social development of urban and rural regions, it emerges that the rural regions could hardly participate in the economic success of Ireland and that disparities have increased. Many farmers are depended on public welfare to make a living, as the Irish living costs have increased during the last years. Consequently today about one third of the Irish households live - in spite of the economic success of the Celtic Tiger - under the relative poverty line. Against the background of this depletion process, the question comes up whether Ireland can act as a paradigm for the European integration process of Poland. Looking at the initial situation of Ireland in 1973 and the current situation in Poland, several parallels exist, however, also strong distinctions. While major similarities can be determined with the agricultural structures as well as with the social value system, developments in Poland are still subject to the not yet completed transformation process from a socialistic to a democratic and capitalistic system. Moreover, the different size and amount of population of these two countries must be considered regarding the European integration process. On the basis of two rural regions as examples -Powiat Zlotow in Northwestern Poland and County Mayo in Western Ireland – rural development shall be presented and compared at the time of EU accession as well as today. Concluding perspectives of the transferability on the regional level shall be pointed out. [less ▲]
