This chapter examines rural governance and community development in Great Britain under the Labour government. It argues that New Labour's concern with making rural communities more active in their own governance and development reflects an ongoing transition in the governmentality of Western liberal democracies. The chapter discusses the mechanisms through which New Labour has sought to make rural communities more active in their own development and governance.
