Abstract

The Welsh Assembly Government's Economic Renewal Strategy aims to develop Wales into a 'knowledge economy'. 'Knowledge economies' depend upon close networks and effective collaboration between the members of the 'triple helix' of universities, government and industry. The Assembly Government is obliged, under the Government of Wales Act (2006), to pay due regard to equality of opportunities in all its policies, a commitment underlined by the requirements for equality impact assessments under new British equalities legislation. In this paper, we conduct a political arithmetic of the gender of key players in the 'triple helix' in Wales. Will the Economic Renewal Strategy promote equality or unintentionally reproduce already rigid patterns of gender segregation in the labour market?
