(p.227) 7 Conclusion
Globalizing Innovation

Patrick J. W. Egan

The MIT Press

This chapter summarizes the main arguments of the book and repeats the central empirical findings. Following a brief discussion of the data sources used to support the varied arguments, this chapter considers the lessons for theory and its strong comparative institutionalist perspective. Policy implications of the book are also considered in this chapter, and the link between institutional and policy reform and innovation outcomes is again emphasized. This chapter considers also the limitations of the book, and the ways the book’s arguments and analysis might be constructively challenged/amended in the future. There are a number of issues not explicitly addressed in the book because of its domestic institutionalist focus, including international treaties on intellectual property rights. The chapter concludes with some suggestions on how these future research agendas might be integrated with existing literature.
