inner periphery, spatial polarization, social capital, potential for development, region of Manětín, Central West Bohemia
This paper presents current socio-geographical research into issues relating regional development in peripheral areas. This research increasingly focuses on human resources as a factor that significantly influences the development of these areas. In particular this means the potential for endogenous development, mobilization of local actors and the pro-active approach of actors, both from the public and private sectors. This paper empirically deals with the issue of social capital in the context of spatial polarization in the inner peripheries of Czechia. The aim of the research was to assess the role of quality and level of social capital in the process of spatial polarization or the influence on the peripherality and to analyse social capital using the example of the region of Manětín and also to assess the quality and potential of social capital for the development of this part of a larger inner periphery. The work is based on several assumptions and an additional effort was made to respond to the research questions. The research involved comparison and insertion into the broader context implemented on two scale-levels – in the broad area of inner periphery located in Central West Bohemia and the region of Manětín, which is consistently interpreted as the inner periphery. The broad territory was first evaluated using structural indicators and then a survey was carried out in the region of Manětín. The main conclusion of the research is that the internal development conditions, or potential for endogenous development and activation of local actors may vary significantly in peripheral regions with similar external conditions.
