Global Value Chains and International Development: Framework, Findings and Policies [published in Chinese]


Book (Collection)

The nine chapters in this book, which are all authored or co-authored by Gary Gereffi, bring together many of the most important academic contributions to the global value chains (GVC) literature, which also have had considerable policy impact. Some of these articles reflect the early contributions of the scholars who were involved in the Rockefeller Foundation’s Global Value Chains Initiative (2000-2008), which was co-directed by Gary Gereffi (Duke University, Durham, NC, USA), John Humphrey (Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, UK), and Timothy Sturgeon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA). Other articles draw upon work carried out at Duke University’s Global Value Chains Center (Duke GVCC), founded by Gereffi in 2005 as a university-based research center to institutionalize and extend many of the insights established by the GVC Initiative. As a collection, these articles provide a solid foundation to understand the theoretical, methodological and empirical contributions that have made the GVC framework so central to contemporary development programs in a wide range of international development organizations and national governments.
