(Global) value chains in a changing world: challenges and opportunities

The past fifty years have been characterised by a massive wave of globalisation, which provided lowered prices, access to a wide variety of goods and services, and reduced global poverty.

However, this historic growth has recently come to a standstill, and both natural events and geopolitical tensions have shown that globalisation can exacerbate vulnerabilities and dependency on third parties.

In this talk, Professor Glenn Magerman, Oxford Martin Visiting Fellow, INET Oxford, will discuss the role of (global) value chains in driving growth, welfare and inequality, the impact of supply chain policies on socio-economic outcomes, and how we can make our societies more resilient to future natural and geopolitical shocks.

This is a joint event with INET Oxford.

This event will be followed by a drinks reception, all welcome.
