Abstract

Basic aim of Leader axis under the Polish Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2007-2013 is activation of rural communities and enhancing of social capital at the local level. Paper investigates the rural policy measure in terms of barriers of functioning of local action groups (LAGs). Outcomes of the research, based on survey of 72 LAGs, show that at the initial stage of their operation, LAGs struggled against the formal and legal problems regarding the financing rules and lack of power in implementation of local strategy measures.
