Summary
The book responds to a growing concern among scholars, professionals, and policy makers over the recent decades about competitiveness of territories in a context of increasing globalization and keener international competition. The book combines contributions of experts from prominent international organizations with researches developed by academics, and adopts both a theoretical and a methodological approach, with a clear focus on the identification of policy options. The book also brings together in-depth empirical analyses, which consider paradigmatic case studies in Europe, Africa and Asia providing new data on regional economies in a comparative perspective. The cases selected represent different levels of development, different transformation strategies and paths with distinct outcomes, providing new and updated data on regional economies in a comparative perspective. This book is essential reading for scholars and students concerned with local development, public policy and globalization, as well as to all those involved professionally in regional and local development
