Edited by Deborah K. Elms and Patrick Low
global value chains in a changing world cover

Global value chains (GVCs) are the international dispersion of design, production, assembly, marketing, and distribution of services, activities, and products. In this volume some of the world’s leading specialists on GVCs examine how these systems have evolved and the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world. The approach is multidisciplinary, with contributions from economists, political scientists, supply chain management specialists, practitioners, and policymakers.
