Innovation, policy learning and social cohesion in the new knowledge economy
"[caters] for both newcomers to the field of policy studies in modern Europe and for experienced policy-makers wishing to keep abreast of new trends and patterns." Journal of Social Policy, Vol. 35 (4), Oct 2006 "This book is a good read." Journal of European Social Policy, 2006, no 16 "By examining and evaluating the 'quantitative' aspects of the European response to the challenges of the 'knowledge-based economy', the book sets a good basis for further (more qualitative) research." Journal of Common Market Studies, 2006 "The European challenge addresses highly topical issues and offers original insights and contributions to the ongoing debate on the knowledge-based economy and the Lisbon strategy."
