Globalization and scientific communities in developing countries

Science is showing signs of its first success in many parts of the developing world. It was during the post-Second World War era that modern science and technology (S&T) witnessed rapid expansion into developing countries. The newly independent states saw science as a symbol of rationality, power, sovereignty, progress and economic growth. With international support (including recurrent impetus from UNESCO), the governments of developing countries resolutely set out to create national scientific systems. The private sector in these countries was to be much slower off the mark, only becoming actively involved in promoting S&T institutions in the late 1980s (Papon, 1997).
