International development organizations and global value chains

Frederick Mayer and Gary Gereffi

Chapter 35 in Handbook on Global Value Chains, 2019, pp 570-584 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: International organizations (IOs) with a development mission have gravitated in nearly universal fashion to adopting some version of global value chain (GVC) analysis since the early 2000s. This chapter explains both the timing and the mechanisms that underlie the adoption of the GVC framework by the IO community. Important questions remain in terms of the multiple uses for GVC analysis by development IOs, as well as the future role of IOs in the global economy.
