Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This report examines the extent to which different policies concerning rural areas address the three transitions explored in the RUSTIK project. It also investigates how evidence, data, and indicators are utilised in the formulation, monitoring, and evaluation of these policies. Research tasks focus on the 2021-2027 Multi-annual Financial Framework. The objective is to determine whether and what types of data are employed to establish the intervention logic of strategies, policies, and programmes related to rural transitions. The analysis is conducted at two levels: (1) the use of indicators/data at selected EU-level policies, and (2) how these EU-level policies and their accompanying indicators are translated at the national level in the countries of the RUSTIK Pilot Regions.
