Globalization of experts
Book par David Demortain
Expertise like many other things is globalized. Knowledge holders involved in our public action, more and more, are people that move across borders, but also among the relevant actors – public administrations in the larger States, international organizations, economic interests, NGOs, trade associations… As such, the experts of a State are often those of another.
They are part of transnational groups which are inconspicuous and poorly known, but who have a certain power over policies. This small book addresses this lack of knowledge and the possible misunderstanding, sweeping many examples and several historical periods.
