Book Launch: Global Production, National Institutions, and Skill Formation

Loughborough University London invites all interested scholars to the launch of the new book Global Production, National Institutions, and Skill Formation (OUP, 2022) by Merve Sancak, which will take place on 3rd November at 5 pm GMT (UK time) in person on Loughborough University London campus and online.

The book provides an in-depth analysis about the multidimensional factors that affect skill formation practices in automotive supplier firms from Mexico and Turkey. It is based on a multi-level analysis of institutions, governance structures in global value chains, and firm-level recruitment and training practices; and draws from 128 interviews with auto parts producers and various stakeholders including the representatives from ministries, industry associations and labour unions.

The discussants include Marius Busemeyer (Konstanz), Christel Lane (Cambridge), and Ben Ross Schneider (MIT). The panel will be chaired by Gregory Jackson (Loughborough London & FU-Berlin).
