Abstract: In Europe, endogenous development has been documented since the early 1990s. In the European context, endogenous development often refers to self-determined participatory development based on regional needs and the use of endogenous potentials. To gain more insight into the context and the motivations of the ‘pioneers’ who are spearheading this development, the Compas programme asked Sabine de Rooij, a sociologist working at Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) at the time, to identify interesting examples of endogenous development in Europe. She selected three cases (in The Netherlands, Italy and Slowakia), and did field research there. Together with the pioneers in these areas she looked at the importance of local resources for endogenous rural development, as well as the values and belief systems of the actors involved. A fourth case of endogenous development in this book (Ireland) is presented by Paul Keating from the Tipperary Institute in Dublin.
