- Communications & Media

The paper “Digital Platforms: A Literature Review and Policy Implications for Development” (Rossotto, C.M., Lal Das, P., Gasol Ramos, E., Clemente Miranda, E., Badran, M.F., Martinez Licetti,M., and Miralles Murciego, G.) will be presented at the 7th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures (21-22 June, 2018). 

ABSTRACT

This article takes stock of the literature around digital platforms, and shows how this review can inform policy choices in developing countries. Through the review, this article sets a research agenda for platforms in emerging markets. Four elements are specifically analyzed. First, the definition of multisided-platforms (MSP); second technology and behavioral enablers; third, the emerging business models; and, fourth, platform dynamics. Each of these elements is assessed in terms of its relevance in emerging and developing countries. Policy implications for development are also highlighted, building the foundations for a new research agenda.

The presentation is available here.
