This chapter argues that the key issue in the economic policy of the state is economic structuring despite the progress of the transformation processes. The OECD (1993) report on the problems of regional development policy in England points to the fundamental importance of ‘structural mega-adjustments’. An investigation on institutional structures and regional development was carried out in the South-eastern part of Poland among nine provinces: Bielsko-Biata, Kielce, Kraków, Krosno, Nowy Sącz, Przemœl, Rzeszów, Tarnobrzeg, and Tarnów. The major differences in institutional structures are highlighted here. Four main configurations of institutional set-ups in regional restructuring emerged from the gathered data: atomistic, bipolar, hierarchic, and network. The rest of the chapter discusses the main institutional barriers to regional restructuring.

Keywords:   OECD, institutional barriers, regional restructuring, Kielce, Krosno, atomistic, bipolar, hierarchic, network
