TERRITOIRE APPROPRIANT ET ECONOMIE DE LA CONNAISSANCE BASEE SUR LES TIC: UNE APPROCHE ECLECTIQUE
Appropriating Territory and ICT-Based Knowledge economy: An Eclectic Approach
Adel Ben Khalifa
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
This paper defends the idea that the transition of countries, particularly developing countries, to the knowledge economy depends on the ability of their territories (sub-national levels) to diffuse and appropriate the new ICT paradigm. This paper proposes a framework for modeling the process of diffusion and appropriation of ICTs and suggests an ideal-type model of territory that supports the diffusion and appropriation of ICTs. This model of '' Appropriating Territory '' questioned the resources and the possible actions that will develop any territory to enter the knowledge economy based on ICT. While ICT offer potentials for all spaces, the ways and effectiveness with which territory exploit these potentials vary from one territory to another. We distinguish between ‘‘Appropriating Territories’’ and connected to the archipelago economy (architecture of the knowledge economy) and other non Appropriating and thus disconnected and marginalized.
