Embeddedness and local cultures and contexts are key in the development of entrepreneurship. Embeddedness is cultural, territorial and networked. All these aspects have to appropriately translate into entrepreneurship education, training and curricula. Entrepreneurs must be able to understand and translate values and culture, as well as the knowledge of their territories, into their work and practices. After a literature review, this chapter showcases these principles through the example of Isla...

The threat of climate change and the need for energy security pose serious challenges for policymakers. Part of the strategy to tackle these issues rests on multilateral initiatives increasing the momentum of global environmental governance efforts. Nevertheless, these problems create a further dilemma for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.

This chapter scrutinizes the fragmentation of the OIC aid system. It is argued that this fragmentation is a result of the asymmetrical intergovernmental relationship between a small number of aid donors (notably the hydrocarbon-rich Gulf States) and a large and increasing pool of aid recipients. The chapter illustrates that this process is empowered by the asymmetrical setting of the OIC (there are very few donors with whom to compete), donors have “bilateralized” the multilateral by supporting ...

ABSTRACTDiversification experiences started across the African continent in the immediate post-independence period, in an attempt to break with traditional colonial models of development.

After a change of priorities in the 1980s and 1990s, there has recently been a renewed atten...
