Presented by: Andrew Kennedy, Senior Lecturer, Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University

Despite growing interest in the phenomenon of ‘latecomer innovation,’ the nature of the challenge it presents developing countries remains poorly understood. Focusing on China and India, this presentation begins by exploring the motivations behind each country's pursuit of technological leadership in recent decades.  It then outlines a theoretical framework that highlights the central policy challenges facing late innovators and explains how these challenges remain relevant in a globalizing world. The final part of the presentation employs this framework to explain China and India’s divergent trajectories in innovation.

He is the author of The International Ambitions of Mao and Nehru: National Efficacy Beliefs and the Making of Foreign Policy (Cambridge UP, 2012), and his other writings have appeared International Security, Review of International Political Economy, Political Science Quarterly, and The Pacific Review, among other outlets.
