Development studies; Development economics
First published in 1999, this volume responds to the recent application of Local Economic Development around the world and examines its impact in South Africa in the wake of the nation's recent political transition. Etienne Louis Nel observes how the initiative is taking on a dual form of community-led and authority-led initiatives. Nel explores the issue through areas including South Africa's space economy, a case study of Stuttenheim and local economic development in East London.
