Description Leader is an approach for implementing the EU’s rural development policy through local action groups (LAG). On the one hand this promises an added value from following a bottom-up and local partnership approach; on the other hand this involves specific costs and risks. Leader is a good example of multi-level governance. This approach was developed on the EU level, but it is implemented on the regional level and it have to be in unity with the National Rural Development Program. We can speak about governance, because there is a visible shift of responsibilities to rural regions. To be more precise, responsibilities are shifted mainly into hands of LAGs. This article examines application of Leader approach in the Czech Republic and compares it with situation in Finland.
