The Knowledge-Based Society: Transition, Geography, and Competition Policy
Editor: Katharine Rockett, University of Essex
When a society becomes knowledge-based, it faces challenges on a variety of levels. How and why knowledge is produced and shared, where it is produced, how knowledge spillovers affect new knowledge creation and parameters of use, changes in strategic decision making in knowledge-based environments and how public policy can and should adapt all are crucial issues.
The special issue aims to provide empirical and theoretical analyses of issues relating to transition, geography, and competition policy in the knowledge-based economy. Surveys of the literature are welcomed along with original pieces of research. Topics can include but are not limited to management concerns, strategic decisions-making, innovation leadership, public policy issues including integration and corporate social responsibility, and macroeconomic trends. Work that incorporates interdisciplinary concerns along with economic modelling is welcome.
