CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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.
