    The Duke GVCC center and DCID are offering a two-week GVC analysis workshop. The program is led by Dr. Gary Gereffi, one of the co-creators of the Global Value Chains framework and the Director of the Duke University Global Value Chains Center; Karina Fernandez-Stark, a Senior Research Analyst at the Duke GVC Center; and Penny Bamber, a Senior Research Associate at the Duke GVC Center. The trio has led GVC training workshops around the world for clients as part of customized offerings. Now, for the first time, this program is being offered as an open program at Duke University for policymakers from around the world. The program incorporates tools to assess different opportunities for firms and clusters by providing a framework through which these chains can be analyzed. Using a combination of international trade data and industry-level information, participants will learn how to “map global value chains”. This is about identifying the main segments of value chains, the most powerful and influential firms in each industry and how these different segments are geographically dispersed around the world.
