The 7th Workshop organized by OEET will be fully online on December 2-3, 2021. Unless Covid-19 related restrictions will prevent it, one of the sessions, still to be selected, will be available both online and in person in Turin. 

OEET invites abstract submissions for paper presentation on the topic:

“Emerging Economies in Global Value Chains: impacts and policy issues”

In the last decades, production of goods and services has become increasingly specialized and fragmented in different countries. Global Value Chains (GVCs), as well as macro-regional networks, have played a role in boosting growth in many developing and emerging economies, as entering in specific phases of production is easier than building whole industries from scratch. GVCs can nonetheless trigger unbalances, inequality, and environmental degradation, including global climate change associated to international logistics. Moreover, developing countries have often taken limited part into GVCs, getting a small share of value added, while some advanced countries and their working class were marginalized.

The workshop welcomes papers contributing to the policy debate on pros and cons of participation in GVCs and which positions along the chains should be promoted by countries willing to pursue sustainable development. Furthermore, the workshop will focus on how GVCs reshape the relationships between advanced and emerging economies and on how they are evolving over time, including the recent stress introduced by the Covid-19 crisis in the healthcare sector and beyond.

Scholars interested in presenting a paper at the Workshop are kindly asked to submit an abstract (in English) of up to 300 words by September 15, 2021 to: Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots.
