Abstract

Most scholars attribute the development and ubiquity of global value chains to economic forces, treating law as an exogenous factor, if at all. By contrast, we assert the centrality of legal regimes and private ordering mechanisms to the creation, structure, geography, distributive effects and governance of GVCs, and thereby seek to establish the study of law and GVCs as rich and important terrain for research in its own right.
