S1 Ep3 Hierarchies in value chains
Global value chains have become crucial for economic development, both at national and international scales. Join us to hear Pamela Mondliwa (Special adviser on economic policy to the minister of finance, South Africa) and Intan Suwandi (Illinois State University, USA) to learn about production and value chains in South Africa and Indonesia, the big debates about global value chains’ role in development, and how the notion of power is important for understanding possibilities and constraints.
The Hierarchies of Development podcast offers long format interviews focusing on enduring global inequalities. Conversations focus on contemporary research projects by critical scholars from across the world that help us understand how and why structural hierarchies persist. Join hosts Ingrid Kvangraven (King’s College, London) and Basile Boulay (EADI) for this series of engaging discussions on pressing issues in the social sciences.
This podcast is a joint production between King’s College, London, the European Association for Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) and the Developing Economics blog, with special editing support from Jonas Bauhof.
