Global supply chains (GSC) are the dominant feature of today's globalized economy. Integration into GSCs can contribute significantly to job creation, skills development and technology transfer. However, this does not occur automatically. Economic and social upgrading need to go hand in hand, but also to be carefully managed. Initiatives undertaken to create decent jobs have to be aware of global supply chains and how to get the most out of GSC participation. This course provides an entry point for understanding the dynamics of global supply chains (social and economic upgrading), issues of governance and policy development, and how, if managed properly, global supply chains can significantly contribute to sustainable development and the creation of decent work.
