Global Knowledge Networks and International Development

Global Knowledge Networks and International Development
Add to cart
US$ 50.95

This volume draws together leading experts from academia, think-tanks and donor agencies, to examine the impact of transnational knowledge networks in the formulation of local, national and global policy in the field of international development and transition studies.

These leading contributors pay particular attention to the global reach of research and the manner in which knowledge is incorporated into, and shapes, transnational policy domains. They show how the 'knowledge agenda' has become a central part of the discourse of both developing societies and advanced economies. Governments and international organizations devote considerable financial resources to both in-house and contracted research.

This volume will be of great interest to students, researchers and policy makers concerned with global policy, global governance and development.
