The European Landscape Convention links the landscape process to recognition of the perceived scope of life. The landscape is a resource to be governed for the welfare of its inhabitants, with potential for propelling local cultures into Europe’s variegated cultural and natural heritage. Quality should be established for all landscapes regardless of aesthetic opinions, since quality, not beauty, is the prime factor. The development of individuals and their socio-cultural affirmation comes about thanks to the three basic concepts of well-being, satisfaction, identity. Thus the true beauty of a landscape, which is the result of action, is not abstract. In this light, an analysis follows of the relationship between landscape quality and policy quality based on recognition, especially of belonging: an extraordinary democratic opportunity.

Keywords: Recognition; relationship; quality
