In rapidly developing nations, industrialization and urbanization result in an urban–rural development gap whereby the standard of living in rural areas lags behind urban areas. This may cause further urbanization and a relative decline in rural areas. Governments have used many strategies to challenge this trend. Using the Republic of Korea as a case study, this paper investigates whether land consolidation, a place-making instrument that may be used to empower rural stakeholders through improving the structure of their properties, might become an instrument of rural development.
