The European challenge
Innovation, policy learning and social cohesion in the new knowledge economy
Economic and social change is accelerating under the twin impact of globalisation and the new information technologies. But how are these processes interrelated? Are they impelling us towards a common socio-economic future? What can governments do if they want to manage and steer the direction of development? This book addresses these questions with particular reference to the European Union, which has made the development of a socially cohesive, knowledge-based economy its central task for the present decade.

This book provides an invaluable review of the literature available and presents major new thinking in terms of theory, understanding and data analysis.
