Global TAP

TAP offers this global page in order to focus on scholars and academic centers from outside the United States who are thought-leaders in technology policy issues. The constant evolution of technological innovation brings opportunities but also challenges to existing policies, laws, and trade agreements within governments and across borders. Content ownership, telecommunications regulations, anti-competitive policies, and cyber-security concerns differ across industries, provinces, and continents. These and other techpolicy issues demand cutting edge scholarship.

To find scholars and work from a specific region of the globe, use the search box below with geographic key words (city or country name or broad geographic areas like “Asia” and “Europe”).

Daniel Sokol Examines FRAND in India
TAP Staff Blogger


Professor D. Daniel Sokol examines FRAND related antitrust issues within the context of India’s high tech policies. In his paper “FRAND in India,” Professor Sokol and his coauthor Professor Shubha Ghosh explain the nature of FRAND licensing and then provide the Indian economic context of FRAND. They identify that the current mix of Indian institutions may not yet be well suited to address complex issues of antitrust enforcement. The authors conclude their thoughts: “How best to treat FRAND disputes will take time but the hope is that through greater experience and learning by doing, the Indian competition system will set out a set of economically informed principles for sound FRAND enforcement.”

New Book on Asia’s Economic Growth

The Dynamics of Economic Growth: Policy Insights from Comparative Analyses in Asia
By Dr. Khuong Minh Vu

In his new book, Professor Khuong Minh Vu uses empirical analyses to provide an in-depth study of the drivers of growth in sixteen Asian economies over the past two decades. Professor Vu shows the root causes that have led many Asian economies to success rely on two central factors: emotion, which is referred to as aspiration, anxiety, and sense of responsibility; and enlightenment, which is associated with the freedom from dogmatism, open-mindedness, and the hunger for learning. It is these two factors that have determined the uniqueness of Asia’s economic growth model.
