BUENDIA-MARTINEZ, Inmaculada  and  COTE, Alain. Territorial Rural Development and Cooperatives: an Analysis from Public Policies. Cuad. Desarro. Rural [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.74, pp.35-54. ISSN 0122-1450.

Rural areas face a range of global challenges as a result of current economic and social transformations. The contribution of cooperatives, as collective companies with a strong territorial affiliation, has led them to be considered in some countries as a pillar of rural policies. This paper analyzes a successful public initiative released almost Λϊηy years ago: cooperatives for regional development. Their function as promoters of the cooperative movement in Quebec is critical for corporate diversity and employment in rural areas.

Keywords : cooperatives; rural territorial development; rural policy cooperatives for regional development; public policies.
