Although in recent years some emerging economies have improved
their performance in terms of research and development (R&D)
investment, outputs and innovative capacity, these countries are
still blighted by extreme poverty, inequality and social exclusion.
Hence, emerging countries are exposed to conditions which differ
quite substantially from the dominant OECD model of innovation
policy for development and welfare. This Research Handbook
contributes to the debate by looking at how innovation theory,
policy and practice interact, and explains different types of
configurations in countries that are characterized by two
contrasting but mutually reinforcing features: systemic failure and
resourcefulness. Focusing on innovation governance and public
policies, it aims to understand related governance failures and to
explore options for alternative, more efficient approaches. This
book brings to the fore new concepts, theories and questions about
the Global South, across multiple disciplines. It discusses
specific country cases, exploring overarching patterns and lessons
that address development bottlenecks and policy designs aimed at
improving quality of life and economic progress in emerging
economies. Defining more adequate development strategies by
balancing economic well-being with social inclusion, this book will
be of great interest to scholars, students and policy makers of
innovation, growth and development studies. Contributors include:
