Concepts and definitions of multifunctionality in Polish agricultural policy and research
Koncepcje i definicje wielofunkcyjności w polskiej polityce rolnej i badaniach
Abstract: This study seeks to analyse the process of rural areas policy development in Poland. In this sense, various approaches towards multifunctional rural development within the scientific arena are presented. In Poland, the concept of multifunctionality of rural areas occurred at the beginning of the 1990’s as a result of political system transformation. The research conducted so far points to the definitions of multifunctionality of rural areas as referring to non-agricultural activities of the rural community.
