主 旨 / Outline

Since their recent emergence, Global Value Chains have become an important economic phenomenon. Differing perspectives in scientific research on Global Value Chains contribute to our evolving understanding of the substantial impact of business activity on environmental, social and economic developments across national borders along multiple steps. What are current conclusions, what are today’s responses on political or corporate management levels, and what are further directions?

This research symposium will feature presentation from three scholars working on various dimensions related to sustainability in contemporary global value chains. Together they will address three perspectives on sustainable global value chains. Research presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with the audience about findings, implications and new areas of importance for research and practice.
