De-Globalization and the Future of GVCs

On Tuesday 20 April 2021, Pol Antràs (Harvard University and CEPR) presented "De-Globalization and the Future of GVCs" at the online seminar series on “The Policy Implications of Recent Globalization Research” which is organised by the German Development Institute, the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics (CEP-LSE), and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).

The online seminar series aimed to encourage the exchange and discussion of empirical research on trade and investment and its effects on developing and emerging countries. The seminar differed from a traditional academic seminar, which focuses on methodology and academic exchange, and instead aimed to promote the translation of academic findings into policy. As such, the seminar series provided the opportunity for mutual learning: researchers learning about urgent policy questions and policy makers learning about what is methodologically feasible. Within the seminar series, we aimed for academic researchers that can share innovative empirical work and policy insights. Instead of focusing on particular papers, the seminar series invited presenters to present on a particular topic and present their accumulated and broader research findings and agenda. The target audience of the seminar included both academics and policymakers dealing with trade and investment, and particularly policy makers from emerging and developing countries and in multilateral organisations. The seminar series was held on Zoom and consisted of a 40 minutes presentation and 20 minutes Q&A.
