    Multilateral Coordination and Exchange for Sustainable Global Value Chains

    While participation in global value chains is widely associated with benefits for countries' development, environmental and social costs are becoming increasingly evident. The authors recommend that the G20 become a key global forum for exchange on this important challenge.

    Cling together, swing together: The Contagious Effects of COVID-19 on Developing Countries through Global Value Chains

    This paper aims to estimate the economic vulnerability of developing countries to disruptions in global value chains (GVCs) due to the pandemic. We confirm conjecture that countries most affected are those highly integrated in GVCs, mostly South-East Asian countries.

    Structural Change in Exports: From Product to Functional Specialization in Trade

    Trade analysis on the basis of countries’ export baskets can be misleading when production is globally fragmented. The chapter argues for a switch to analysis of the type of activities that are embodied in exports.

    Cooperation Event Online event: 09/03/2021 Organisers: German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA), German Development Institute, Kiel Institute for the World Economy, German Institute for International and Security Affairs

    The virtual launch of the Research Network Sustainable Global Supply Chains: the network is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with the aim of undertaking and stimulating new research that helps to make supply chains more sustainable and to synthesize the best international research on this topic and make it accessible for policymakers and other societal stakeholders.

    For this purpose, BMZ has commissioned the German Development Institute (DIE), the German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA), the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) and Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) to establish a network of internationally leading scholars to produce a series of research papers, conferences, policy dialogues, podcasts, a blog, an annual report as well as a dedicated website.

    The launch event will be opened by State Secretary Norbert Barthle, BMZ, and include a panel discussion among leading international supply chain researchers, a discussion on the pros and cons of due diligence laws holding companies accountable for their suppliers as well as selection of topical academic presentations.
