Local Content Case Studies
IGF’s Guidance for Governments: Local Content Policies is informed by a host of case studies. Arranged by the five different types of local content policies covered in the guidance, the case studies below illustrate the lessons of history, both positive and negative. The case studies place a particular emphasis on what has or has not worked, and why those policies have been successful or have failed. While each country’s challenges and objectives are unique, policy-makers will still find that those lessons have value and relevance.
