Abstract [en]

The LEADER programme is aiming at transgressing existing boundaries between social sectors. It is done through the creation of partnership organizations and new regions. Viewed from a governance standpoint, the inclusion of actors from the private and non-profit sectors promises higher efficiency in delivering political goods through added resources and increased local knowledge.   The article will describe if the Leader-method function as a means of ensuring a bottom-up approach, innovation and decision-making in partnership. In the future Leader can be seen as a strategic tool for ensuring participation and cohesion. There will be a focus on following factors as: Partnership   An important question is how it is decided that representatives shall be invited into the partnership. Shall this be done in a relatively ordinary way or shall it include greater elements of new thinking and process orientation?   Process-oriented. In many guidelines for development work, it is pointed out that the work shall be carried out with a process-oriented manner of working. In order to succeed with a process work, a great measure of flexibility and fresh thinking is required with space for new ideas and new groupings. Bottom-up approach. In connection with local development, a bottom-up approach is often mentioned. Has the Leader-program contributed positively?  The article will also describe some Leader-projects who have the main effort to support a good life environment with a functioning public service attracting new people. These bring with them work or plans for activities who lead to increasing employment in the district.
