Globalization, International Spillovers and Sectoral Changes

Implications for Regions and Industries

Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Andreas P. Cornett and Tina Wallin

As a consequence of globalization, news, ideas and knowledge are moving quickly across national borders and generating international spillovers. So too, however, are economic and financial crises. Combining a variety of methods, concepts and interdisciplinary approaches, this book provides an in-depth examination of these structural changes and their impact. Assessing the implications of globalization for businesses and sectors, chapters focus on the interdependencies between different economic and political layers, and explore topics such as human capital, creativity, innovation, networks and collaboration.

Chapter 12: Identifying potential human capital creation within the crossborder institutional thickness model in the Rhine-Waal region

Nino Javakhishvili-Larsen, Andreas P. Cornett and Martin Klatt


In recent decades, European neighbouring regions have gained importance in the processes of spatial integration within the European Union. Based on the European Cohesion goals, cross-border cooperation among institutions supports the socio-economic development of the regions and enhances equality across Europe. In order to study cross-border institutional cooperation, this chapter develops a conceptual model of cross-border institutional thickness (CBIT) and tests its applicability on the case study of the Rhine-Waal region (NL-GE). It is explorative research, based on the Interreg IVA project database. The chapter focuses on institutions, cross-border initiatives and policies, and contributes to the body of empirical evidence on the issue. A set of social network analysis techniques are applied to measure the CBIT model and unfold some facts about cross-border interactions among institutions by means of Interreg projects in the Rhine-Waal region.
