Global TAP

TAP offers this global page in order to focus on scholars and academic centers from outside the United States who are thought-leaders in technology policy issues. The constant evolution of technological innovation brings opportunities but also challenges to existing policies, laws, and trade agreements within governments and across borders. Content ownership, telecommunications regulations, anti-competitive policies, and cyber-security concerns differ across industries, provinces, and continents. These and other techpolicy issues demand cutting edge scholarship.

To find scholars and work from a specific region of the globe, use the search box below with geographic key words (city or country name or broad geographic areas like “Asia” and “Europe”).

It is these two factors that have determined the uniqueness of Asia’s economic growth model.
