Local Actors and Local Development. The Case of Poland

A return to locality, the power seen in activities leading to socio-economic development at local level, confirm the importance of research and debate on the significance of local actors in local development. That is why the paper focuses on the role of other actors of local development. There are also activities that can be undertaken by local actors in order to effectively influence local development. Experiences connected with the role of local authorities in local development confirm their importance in this process. It needs to be mentioned, however, that local authorities are not the only actors of local development. Entrepreneurs, local society and non-government organizations also influence the direction of local development. Nowadays, there is a great focus on the effects of co-operation between local actors for local development.
