This paper argues how a geopolitical perspective can shed light on the dynamics of policymaking and policy recommendations. Introducing a geopolitical point of view might help strengthen the design of innovation policies by considering the geopolitical factors involved in policy success. The geopolitical factors are elements that affect the design and, therefore, the analysis of innovation policies. This paper focuses on stakeholders, financing, and context. These factors reveal power dynamics and geostrategies such as competition and influences both on a national and an international scale that can shape policies. This policy paper is part of the project entitled «Public Policies for Innovation in Jordan: Realities and Ambitions» implemented jointly by the West Asia-North Africa Institute (WANA) and the Konrad-Adenauer- Stiftung (KAS) – Jordan Office.
