Knowledge Society and Transition Economies The Bulgarian Challenge
AbstractCe papier évalue la situation bulgare dans l' économie fondée sur la connaissance en Europe. Il s'appuie sur la méthodologie de la banque mondiale (2005). Après avoir présenté le cadre analytique, l' analyse révèle que la Bulgarie se trouve dans une situation très défavorable, résultant de différents facteurs se renforçant les uns aux autres dans un processus cumulatif. Aussi doit-elle s'attacher à améliorer ses règles de gouvernance et sa capacité à mobiliser le capital humain et à coordonner les interactions entre les personnes et les organisations si elle veut aller vers une économie fondée sur la connaissance. / This paper evaluates the Bulgarian positioning in the European knowledge-based economy. The analysis is mainly based on the Knowledge Assessment Methodology of the World Bank (2005). After an analytical framework, the analysis reveals an alarming situation for Bulgaria resulting from several unfavorable factors, which reinforce one another in a cumulative process. Finally, the conclusion underlines that a necessary condition for the Bulgarian economy to become knowledge-based, is to set up good rules of governance but also to be able to mobilize human capital and to coordinate the interactions within citizens and organizations
