The paradigm of the endogenous rural development tries to explain the capacity of rural communities, which are excluded by processes of modernization, and they way they support their own economic development by depending on resources, techniques and local know-how. The endogenous rural development has been studied so far mainly by sociologists but rarely by agricultural economists. In fact, a thorough doctrinal classification does not exist. The lack of interest by agricultural economics of such a developmental pattern can perhaps be attributed to a marginal approach by scientific economics which does not provide the most suitable tools in order to analyse the development of endogenous rural phenomena.
