This study examines the level of interconnectedness and the relational power of stakeholders operating in four local territorial systems (LTSs) localized in a southern Italian province. Such an analysis allows for the determination of the dominant rationality of each LTS, i.e. the pattern of distribution of decision-making power among its stakeholders and hence the extent to which each of them is capable of influencing local governance processes. In all four LTS, public institutions are revealed to be endowed with higher relational power than the other stakeholders. The dominant rationality of each LTS and policy implications deriving from results are discussed.

Abstract

This study examines the level of interconnectedness and the relational power of stakeholders operating in four local territorial systems (LTSs) localized in a southern Italian province. Such an analysis allows for the determination of the dominant rationality of each LTS, i.e. the pattern of distribution of decision-making power among its stakeholders and hence the extent to which each of them is capable of influencing local governance processes. In all four LTS, public institutions are revealed to be endowed with higher relational power than the other stakeholders. The dominant rationality of each LTS and policy implications deriving from results are discussed.
