Revitalisation of the household economy : Social Integration Strategies in disadvantaged rural areas of Hungary / von Judit Csoba


With the transformation of the role of the welfare state, the “social engagement” and “active participation” were taking the place of passive benefits. The importance of individual actions is becoming more and more prominent.
With the reducing of the welfare benefits and expansion of the workfare model after the crisis in 2008, the main objective of the local integration programs were to strengthen self-sufficiency of social group with precarious life situations in rural areas of Hungary. The purpose of this volume is to give a brief overview of the most important local integration programs of the past quarter century, focusing on the social land program. The analysis, summarizing the results of an empirical study, presents the main turning points of the local integration models, the changing environmental conditions, the adaptation strategies and the possible directions of development of local communities in Hungary.
