Long abstract:
This panel deals with knowledge strategies of businesses and financial institutions in and with Africa. It invites papers that deal with seeing knowledge development as a business model, and its effect on inclusion and exclusion. The panel will deal with the question how public and private knowledge centres compete with each other, or work together, and it deals with the issue of Public-Private hybridization, and how to understand that.
