Local cooperation is usually one of drivers of regional development. Local cooperation is important because for the most part, it is largely under the control of locals. Local cooperation does not usually require input from outside the region for it to be successful, local cooperation is usually initiated locally. Successful local cooperation is usually underpinned by two very simple questions: • When and with whom do I/we cooperate? • When and with whom do I/we compete?

This paper reviews a few of the important aspects of the literature on local cooperation, as one of the local drivers of local regional development, to provide an update for those interested in the topic.

For this paper the various aspects of the literature are divided into two groups: first a few of the fundamental aspects and second, a few more recent aspects of the literature.

The choice of which aspects to include in this update was driven by their currency and their relevance in driving local regional development practice.
