It reveals differences in perception between informants of the studied organisations. Informants from the Country Administrative Board are generally more positive about the role of protected areas in rural development, whereas informants from The Federation of Swedish Farmers and The Swedish Village Action Movement tended to be more suspicious about the role of protected areas in rural development.
