This chapter examines the developments of rural policy in Great Britain in the context of international economic, social, and political trends. It evaluates the achievements of New Labour's rural policy against the internationalist aspirations of the party's Commission on Social Justice in 1994. The findings indicate that while its macroeconomic policies have fostered continuous growth, New Labour's economic policies for rural areas remain stubbornly agricultural and outdated.

Keywords:   rural policy, Great Britain, international trends, New Labour, Social Justice commission, macroeconomic policies, economic policies
