The Learning Region

Foundations, State of the Art, Future

Edited by Roel Rutten and Frans Boekema

The aim of this book is to present a much-needed conceptualization of ‘the learning region’. The editors scrutinize key concepts and issues surrounding this phenomenon, which are then discussed in the context of recent literature. This unique conceptualization of the learning region presents a state of the art exploration of theories. Leading scholars from across Europe, the USA and South Africa draw upon various disciplines to explain how regional actors perform regional learning.

This study uses the example of six Indonesian migrant entrepreneurs in the UK to demonstrate how social capital ‘works’. Based on in-depth interviews with these people, the study identifies how bonding and bridging social capital play a different role in the start-up and development phases of a business. Importantly, the study shows how material conditions, such as education, legal status and kind of business, affect the development of social capital of migrant entrepreneurs. The study further explains how maintaining bonding social capital in one’s own community may come at the expenses of building bridging social capital that is needed for business development.
