Techno-Globalism and Techno-Nationalism: an Interpretative Framework

  • S. Montresor
Registered author(s):

    This paper deals with the globalisation process and with the tensions between national, super-national and sub-national forces it entails. A taxonomy is put forward in order to examine the question at different levels, distinguishing aspects of ‘techno-territoriality’, ‘techno-sovereignty’, ‘techno-citizenship’ and ‘techno-nationality’, pertaining to, respectively, geographical borders, governance structures and policy making, strategic behaviors and accountability, socio-cultural distances and spaces. The analysis of some of the massive contributions on the issue shows that the first three items have actually reached a global specification, but without completely losing national or even more local characters. A different evaluation instead holds for techno-nationality, as a certain communality of language and culture within a country, along with its historically formed institutional setting, conduce to different technological styles and performances: ‘techno-national systems of innovation’ therefore still matter.
