Rural Development in Central America : Markets, Livelihoods and Local Governance

R. Ruben, J. Bastiaensen

Research output: Book/ReportBook editingAcademic

Abstract

Rural development is now considered almost synonymous with involvement in market exchange. When market and institutional failures prevail, however, rural communities increasingly rely on local institutional or contractual arrangements to guarantee their livelihoods. This book offers a comprehensive review of the debate on the importance of real markets in the Central American rural development process.
