  • Jonathan Cave and Christopher Doyle discuss the ‘policy portfolio’ that underlies successful economic clusters.
  • Sascha O. Becker casts the offshoring trend in a new light by examining the tasks that distinguish jobs going abroad from jobs that remain at home.
  • Mirko Draca explains why education and socio-economic programmes could be important crime-fighting tools.
  • Abhinay Muthoo and Siobhan Benita suggest ways in which researchers and policymakers can work together to improve governments, economies and societies.
