Abstract

This paper is a critical discussion of the "bottom-upward" school of regional studies associated particularly with the names of John Friedmann and Walter Stohr. First identified is the key argument of what we may call neoregionalism, namely its advocacy of regional self-government coupled with policies of local economic protectionism. The comparative experience is briefly reviewed and cautionary lessons are noted about some potential disbenefits of decentralization to which insufficient attention has been paid within the neoregionalistic perspective. Finally, conclusion are drawn about regional reform and what can realistically be expected of it.
