Abstract

This paper gives consideration to the formation and initial operation of new alliances for territorial development at the meso spatial scale of the ‘Pays’ in France and Belgium (case study experiences from the Champagne-Ardenne region and Wallonia). It explores the contribution of ‘Pays’ as new scale action spaces, in which to engage elected representatives, civil society, the private sector and public officials in a constructive planning dialogue around locally determined development trajectories. The paper concludes with a critical assessment of the ‘Pays’ approach as a meaningful contribution to rescaling territorial development at the meso scale with particular reference to concerns around the interaction between strategic planning and multiple governance stakeholders. - (BJ)
