This conference brings together the research community studying fragmented global production systems and is both a global and interdisciplinary conference. Conference themes covered inter alia the governance of global production networks, the role of transnational corporations in global trade, varieties of national organization and institutions, regulation of global production networks, and policy applications and implications of global production networks. The conference was attended by leading scholars in the field.
