Marginal Areas and Endogenous Development: The Cultural Economy of Handicraft in Kachchh (India)
This study aims, through analysis of a representative case, to help towards an understanding of the conditions and processes that allow a marginal area to pursue a path of sustainable development. Two main conclusions emerge. Firstly, the actual possibility for marginal areas to exit stagnation seems related to the mobilization of local resources and capabilities, i.e. the triggering of endogenous development processes. Secondly, cultural resources hold a special importance for marginal areas, as they are always present though often "hidden" or latent. Endogenous development means precisely mobilizing and enhancing the resources "trapped" in an area.
