About

The Local Economic Development course at Erasmus University Rotterdam tackles the challenge of creating synergies between policies and their stakeholders in both rural and urban settings. You will be introduced to specific strategies and tools for creating and managing these processes from a multi-stakeholder perspective.

Overview

Key facts:

  • How can we get our local economy to grow in an inclusive way? How do entrepreneurship and innovation affect local economy? What strategies are there to support local enterprises? Are your region's local economic policies driving sufficient investment to make it competitive?
  • Entrepreneurs and small businesses (firms or farms) are the backbone of local economy. Understanding the impact they have on its competitiveness is key to drafting policies that are effective but also inclusive. These policies should inspire social dialogue and bring together the community, businesses and government actors to support existing local capacities and make way for the development of new ones.
  • The Local Economic Development course at Erasmus University Rotterdam will be offered in collaboration with the International Institute for Social Studies (ISS) in The Hague. ISS is an international graduate school of policy-oriented critical social science. It brings together students and teachers from the Global South and the North in a European environment. Established in 1952 as the International Institute of Social Studies by Dutch universities and the Netherlands Ministry of Education, it does research, teaching and public service in the field of development studies and international cooperation.

Programme Structure

  • The Local Economic Development course employs a blend of methods ranging from lectures, expert seminars on best practices and group discussions to on-site visits. Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences during the group and individual exercises. By the end of the course, you apply the newly obtained knowledge on your region’s local economy by preparing a strategic plan.
