Abstract

The Leader framework developed by the European Commission (2000) was employed in response to rural unemployment and migration to urban areas. Leader aimed at incorporating new forms of governance at the local level by creating a legal basis for cross-sectoral partnerships and fostering stakeholder interaction and public participation. The establishment of Local Action Groups in Poland, however, does not warrant the effectiveness of their stakeholders’ participation. Perceived fairness has been recognized as a required precondition for individuals’ support for decisions and meaningful involvement in decision-making processes. The primary goal of this paper is to explore the basis of entitlement beliefs that selected Leader participants in Poland use to judge fairness and their participatory behavior in response to issues of fairness of tourism decision-making processes and distribution of Leader benefits.

Fair or Unfair: A study on Polish Leader participants in the context of tourism decision-making

The Leader framework developed by the European Commission (2000) was employed in response to rural unemployment and migration to urban areas. Leader aimed at incorporating new forms of governance at the local level by creating a legal basis for cross-sectoral partnerships and fostering stakeholder interaction and public participation. The establishment of Local Action Groups in Poland, however, does not warrant the effectiveness of their stakeholders’ participation. Perceived fairness has been recognized as a required precondition for individuals’ support for decisions and meaningful involvement in decision-making processes. The primary goal of this paper is to explore the basis of entitlement beliefs that selected Leader participants in Poland use to judge fairness and their participatory behavior in response to issues of fairness of tourism decision-making processes and distribution of Leader benefits.
