Future Proofing Sustainable Global Value Chains in the Post Pandemic Era (organized by AIB)

Impetus of the pandemic on trends of changing landscape and issues of sustainability, resilience and changes in the landscape of GVCs, regional value chains, coordinated National Value Chains and good IB research and perspectives on this? What is the role of GVCs for sustainable recovery, where does it leave developing countries now that banked on participation in GVCs; what possible answers can our international business research give here for policymakers and practitioners? What are the conditions that facilitate or impede the global diffusion of sustainable practices by multinational corporations?
