Abstract
The next European programming period 2014-2020 is aiming to reach the goals of Europe2020 strategy of sustainable, smart and inclusive growth, looking also at a concrete overrun of the economic and social crisis broken out in 2008 at global level. Together with these objectives and according to the spirit of European integration, the European Union wants to stimulate a more intense and purposeful participation of citizens in decision-making processes that is one of the main European challenges towards 2020. Through the European program 2014-2020, the citizen involvement in the decision-making processes is being realized by the Community-led Local Development (CLLD) whereby the reading key is the LEADER method. The main goal of this research is to verify how citizen participation influences local development strategies and how local needs are best incorporated into the decision- making process. Therefore, this paper is focusing on how citizen participation is involved in the achievement of the neo-endogenous local development. We aim to develop a suited theoretical and analytical framework for and a better understanding of citizen participation in neo-endogenous local development, by analyzing the LEADER program, considering its philosophy and its application. Empirically, the first case-study of the research is the Local Action Group (LAG) FAR Maremma, in Tuscany, whereby LEADER is carried out, and that was the only one in that Region to apply a participative method for the elaboration of the local development strategy during the European programming period 2007-2013.
