What can the Global Value Chains framework reveal about winners and losers in the global economy? What are the implications of this framework for both international policies and academic research? Join Duke professor Gary Gereffi, one of the architects of the GVC framework, along with Alex Pfaff (Sanford, Nicholas School), Jackson Ewing (Nicholas Institute), and Giovanni Zanalda (DUCIGS) for a discussion on the intersecting impacts of the global value chains framework on communities and the environment.
