Country Case Studies
These case studies focus on the five types of local content policies covered in the IGF’s guidance and 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.
