Duke GVC Summit

October 29-31  |  Durham, NC  |  Duke University
Duke University hosted a Global Summit for policy leaders who are thinking about value chains, governance and development in the world’s top international organizations. We have three main objectives: Direct policy impact: The summit will involve people in positions to make policy at top international organizations—such as the World Bank, the IFC, the World Trade Organization, World Economic Forum, Inter-American Development Bank, African Development Bank, OECD, UNCTAD, UNIDO, ITC, and the ILO, among others—all of whom are interested in the policy implications of a world economy increasingly influenced by global and regional value chains. Influence on development discourse among practitioners: Outputs of the summit, including a summit webpage, live video, a mini-documentary, and a series of policy briefs, will reach a global audience interested in issues of globalization and development. Academic research on governance and value chains: By interacting with leading practitioners, academic researchers will gain a better understanding of the key issues and questions facing policymakers, and will help to disseminate the results of the Global Summit to diverse groups.
