KCG Internal Workshop 2019

Nov. 20, 2019

Kiel, Germany

The Kiel Centre for Globalization (KCG) was established as a Leibniz ScienceCampus by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) and the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel (CAU) in October 2016. Its thematic focus has been to work on an interdisciplinary research agenda that evaluates the proliferation of global value chains (GVCs) as an important aspect of globalization. Bringing together researchers from economics, ethics and management science, KCG combines insights from these three fields to analyse the benefits and limitations of the relocation of production activities around the globe. Over the past three years of work, the KCG research has led to some first results, with the most recent of them to be presented at the KCG Workshop 2019 for discussions.
