The aim of the event is to connect the events which affected the globalization process over the past years and explaining how the process has changed and has shaped changes in world economies. In this scenario, we are particularly interested in: (i) defining the role that global value chains (GVCs) have played and continue to play in both developed and developing countries: (ii) macro and microeconomic consequences of GVCs; (iii) investigating the effects of GVCs on labor and financial markets, and on their impact on development and inequality.
