Fressoli, Dias, and Thomas highlight the tensions between market logic and local participation in innovation by describing how ideas for technological development and social inclusion that were originally developed in India are being taken up in Latin America and by such global institutions as the World Bank. Combining analyses of cognitive praxis and of the sociotechnical alliances involved in these movements allows the authors to consider how ideas circulate among areas of the global South, their relevance to a new local context (in this case, Latin America), and how these ideas intersect with the market, market thinking, and concerns about the well-being of the poor.

Keywords:   innovation, participation, global South, social inclusion, technological development, Latin America, Argentina, Brazil
