This article reviews the relationships between institutionalized actors in local and regional development partnerships. Its main focus is on partnerships in the UK, Europe, and the USA, but attention is also given to other parts of the world. Local and regional development partnerships frequently include actors from the community and civil society as well as from formal organizations in the public, for profit, and not for profit sectors, and in this respect, this article is likely to share some concerns with a number of other works, from those on policy and implementation networks and on public service partnerships to those on community and voluntary sector partnerships. This article also discusses the policy and practitioner-oriented literature about the strengths and weaknesses of partnership as a way of pursuing local and regional development and regeneration. Finally, it concludes with an assessment of the possible future of partnership for local and regional development.
