Abstract

This paper is concerned with the various policies which encourage rural entrepreneurship and support for rural enterprise in the 10 case study areas covered by the FERP (The Future of Europe's Rural Peripheries) project. After introducing a typology of existing policies, the paper addresses some lessons drawn from the experiences of existing policies before discussing the kinds of policies needed to stimulate potential sources of entrepreneurship and overcome the barriers to enterprise development. The paper concludes by arguing for a more strategic and coordinated approach towards building the entrepreneurial capacity of peripheral rural areas, based on a clearer vision of the role that enterprise can play in future rural development.
