UNDER RECONSTRUCTION -- Our new beautifully-designed, fully responsive site will soon be unveiled...


The Anthem Studies in Innovation and Development Series aims to publish cutting-edge scholarship that pushes the boundaries of our understanding of how innovation impacts human and economic development. The aim is to promote a better understanding of innovation, evaluate ongoing approaches to analyse innovation capacity, and to generate a set of instructive readings that elaborate upon the role of innovation capabilities in enabling development, reducing inequality and eliminating poverty. The series is interested in exploring the role of technology and innovation in sustainable development (at the global or sectoral level), links between trade and innovation (including investment and intellectual property rights), the role of the state and new issues in the interface of innovation and industrial policy. The series is particularly interested in analytical approaches to institutional and evolutionary economics, new frameworks and constructs on capabilities building and economic history reviews of innovation and technological change.
