Revue d'économie industrielle, 2018, vol. n° 163, issue 3, 13-34
?This article discusses the origin and uses of the concepts of global value chains and global production networks. It traces the intensification of the circulation of these concepts in the 1990s and 2000s among researchers in sociology, management, geography, and economics. The article then discusses the reasons why, over the past decade, they have been appropriated by international institutions and governments in order to define development and growth policies focused on competitiveness. It also questions the theoretical fragility of these analytical frameworks and points to the need to take greater account of the role of supply chain integration as a particular means of organizing the division of labor. The last section briefly introduces the articles that make up this special issue of the ? ?Revue d??conomie industrielle? ?. ? JEL classification: F15, F23, F6, L16.
