Great Expectations: What Regional Policy Can Realistically Achieve in Australia

  • Year: 2004
  • Author: Paul Collits
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: All

The paper addresses the issue of the unrealistic expectations placed on regional policy by those who see spatially even development as attainable and desirable. It does not specifically formulate or seek to justify answers to what might be termed the four great questions of regional policy:

• What are we trying to achieve (or how do we measure success)? Or, what is the "regional problem"?
• Who is responsible for regional development?
• What drives regional development?
• What works in terms of programs and strategies?
