Abstract

We introduce new studies that argue in favour of: (i) according a central role to governance and regulation as potential determinants of innovation; and (ii) analysing the effects of governance and regulation on innovation in conjunction with the effects of the market structure. These studies were presented at an international conference at the University of Greenwich in September 2011 and will be published as an edited book titled Governance, Regulation and Innovation: Theory and Evidence on Firms and Countries (Edward-Elgar, 2013). The studies explore the relationship between governance and regulation widely defined and innovation, taking into account the interactions between governance and market structure as well as between different dimensions of governance. They contribute to existing literature by providing new empirical evidence and by pointing out to complementary and offsetting innovation effects that may result from interactions between economic governance institutions, corporate governance rules, regulation on the one hand and the market structure on the other.
