Pike A., Rodriguez-Pose A. and Tomaney J. (2007) What kind of local and regional development and for whom?, Regional Studies 41, 1253-1269. This paper asks the question, what kind of local and regional development and for whom? It examines what is meant by local and regional development, its historical context, its geographies in space, territory, place and scale and its different varieties, principles and values. The socially uneven and geographically differentiated distribution of who and where benefits and loses from particular forms of local and regional development is analysed. A holistic, progressive and sustainable version of local and regional development is outlined with reflections upon its limits and political renewal. Locally and regionally determined development models should not be developed independently of more foundational principles and values such as democracy, equity, internationalism and justice. Specific local and regional articulations are normative questions and subject to social determination and political choices in particular national and international contexts. Local Regional Development Pike A., Rodriguez-Pose A. et Tomaney J. (2007) Quelle sorte d'amenagement du territoire et pour qui?, Regional Studies 41, 1253-1269. Cet article pose la question suivante: quelle sorte d'amenagement du territoire et pour qui? Il cherche a examiner ce que l'on veut dire par amenagement du territoire, son historique, ses orientations quant a l'espace, au territoire, a l'endroit et a l'echelle, et ses differentes formes, principes et valeurs. On examine la distribution socialement irreguliere et geographiquement distincte des gens et des emplacements qui profitent ou perdent des formes particulieres d'amenagement du territoire. On esquisse ici une version de l'amenagement du territoire a la fois holistique, progressive et durable, tout en reflechissant sur ses limites et sur le regain politique. Des modeles de developpement, determines sur les plans local ou regional, ne devraient pas etre developpes independamment des principes et des valeurs de base, tels la democratie, l'equite, l'internationalisme et la justice. Des articulations locales et regionales specifiques sont des questions normatives et dependent de la determination sociale et des choix politiques dans des contextes nationaux et internationaux particuliers. Local Regional Developpement Pike A., Rodriguez-Pose A. und Tomaney J. (2007) Welche Art von lokaler und regionaler Entwicklung und fur wen? Regional Studies 41, 1253-1269. In diesem Beitrag wird die Frage gestellt: welche Art von lokaler und regionaler Entwicklung und fur wen? Untersucht werden der Begriff der lokalen und regionalen Entwicklung sowie ihr historischer Kontext, ihre Geografien in Raum, Gebiet, Ort und Massstab sowie ihre verschiedenen Varietaten, Prinzipien und Werte. Analysiert wird die gesellschaftlich ungleichmassige und geografisch differenzierte Verteilung hinsichtlich der Frage, wer von bestimmten Formen der lokalen und regionalen Entwicklung wo profitiert oder verliert. Es wird eine ganzheitliche, progressive und nachhaltige Version der lokalen und regionalen Entwicklung beschrieben, und es werden Uberlegungen hinsichtlich ihrer Grenzen und politischen Erneuerung angestellt. Lokal und regional bestimmte Entwicklungsmodelle sollten nicht unabhangig von grundlegenderen Prinzipien und Werten wie Demokratie, Gleichheit, Internationalismus und Gerechtigkeit entwickelt werden. Spezifische lokale und regionale Ausserungen sind normative Fragen und unterliegen einer gesellschaftlichen Determination sowie einer politischen Auswahl in bestimmten nationalen und internationalen Kontexten. Lokal Regional Entwicklung Pike A., Rodriguez-Pose A. y Tomaney J. (2007) ¿Que tipo de desarrollo regional y local es necesario y para quien?, Regional Studies 41, 1253-1269. En este ensayo planteamos la cuestion de que tipo de desarrollo regional y local es necesario y para quien. Analizamos que significa exactamente desarrollo local y regional, su contexto historico, sus geografias en el espacio, territorio, lugar y escala y sus diferentes variaciones, principios y valores. Estudiamos tambien la distribucion socialmente desigual y geograficamente diferenciada de quien se beneficia y quien sale perjudicado de los diferentes tipos de desarrollo local y regional y donde ocurre. Describimos una version holistica, progresiva y sostenible del desarrollo local y regional con reflexiones sobre sus limites y renovacion politica. Los modelos de desarrollo determinados a nivel local y regional no deberian crearse sin tener en cuenta principios y valores fundamentales tales como democracia, derechos, internacionalismo y justicia. Las articulaciones especificas a nivel local y regional son cuestiones normativas y estan sujetas a determinaciones sociales y opciones politicas en contextos nacionales e internacionales.
