Rural regions are unique territorial spaces in terms of economic abilities, social features and the settlement structure. Such areas have undergone meaningful changes throughout Europe, including Hungary. Important changes have taken place, creating functions other than agrarian production for rural regions. These new functions and their diversity requires a different, more complex analysis which in turn necessitates a different approach towards the understanding of the core elements of development in the regions in question. This includes focusing on social, economic, cultural and environmental factors and adjusts institutional design accordingly. My work1 concentrates on the role of endogenous regional development and territorial capital in rural areas, reviews and evaluates available relevant literature and comes to findings from them. First, I briefly introduce Hungarian countryside and the changing rural territorial processes, then the unique importance of endogenous regional development and territorial capital in this context should be easily interpreted. In my work I intend to highlight the role of territorial capital in the development of rural areas. This special approach of endogenous development and its concept gives us a theoretical framework to measure and to compare different territorial units.
