Rural areas of success - in search of definitions and measures

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper is an introduction to the discussion on rural areas of success, their definitions, methods of delimitation, conditions of localization and relationship with other socio-economical phenomena. Areas, where all indices describing civilization development are relatively high and which are characterised by a constant progress in chosen measures in a given time, should be considered as the rural areas of success. This definition assumes that a region where only one of the examined planes is highly developed while the other features reach values lower than the average cannot be recognized as the areas of success. Dynamic perspective is the other important element of the definition. Very important feature of the area of success is their relativity, which in great extend depends on the reference point. - (BJ)
