The participation of the rural poor in rural development: a theoretical construct



The participation of the rural poor in rural development: a theoretical construct



Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies 1991/1992; 30(2): 167-177



This paper highlights the involvement of the rural poor in rural development. Through a definitional clarification of who the rural poor are and what citizen participation is, the paper looks at different forms of participation. It examines the various schools of thought which look at citizen participation as a means, as an end it itself and as a basic need.
