Mecanisme şi factori ai subdezvoltării comunităţilor. O analiză în mediul rural românesc
Mechanisms and Factors of Communities Underdevelopment. An Analysis in the Romanian Rural Environment
Abstract: This analysis intends to capitalize the results of several case studies made during the past years within rural communities. These socio-economic diagnoses on community level had been done according to a multidimensional model; each of these was focused, according to the goals, mainly on one or other of the dimensions of the manner of defining the social development. The goal of integrating these study cases’ results is to make an analysis of the factors and mechanisms regulating the emergence and evolution of the social problems on community level and of the concrete and differential manners of functioning on local level of the socio-economic mechanisms with impact on the social development. A direction of analysis is haw impact of the structural factors of the development is regulated by the functioning of some contextual/local mechanisms and also the concrete manner of development of some development programs. On the other side we intend to identify the key-factors of the development and how these may function as strategically variables within a model of development adapted to the current realities of the Romanian rural communities.
