Abstract

This paper analyses the policy implications related to the progression of three key emerging metropolitan regions in the Balkan Peninsula towards the development of knowledge-based economies. It suggests that a challenge for these regions is realizing the ‘new value’ of knowledge. The paper finds that regional policy-making is a relatively new area of intervention. It is suggested that the problems and barriers found in these emerging regions, and the potential policy solutions, resonate with those of the less competitive regions of more advanced national economies. In the case of the emerging regions, however, the policy learning curve remains relatively steep.
