Industrial Policies and Institutional Sustainability. the Case of Inner Areas in Italy

EasyChair Preprint no. 267

19 pagesDate: June 15, 2018


The principal aim of this study is to develop a model for analysing and assessing industrial policies based on the concept of institutional sustainability. Institutional sustainability should inform public policies in order to improve the productive structure of a country or a region, thereby contributing to its economic and social development. For this purpose, a two-step assessment model has been developed and tested on a case study. The case analysed is that of the inner areas in Italy, for which a development strategy has been planned at the national level. Results show an influence of the institutional system on market functioning and also the influence of a dominant culture in favor of institutional mechanisms, which are still affected by individualism and closure to collaborative market relationships. On the basis of this analysis, the main measures to be implemented in the case analysed have been identified.

Keyphrases: Entrepreneurship, industrial policy, Institutional sustainability, planning policies, regional development
