Social Upgrading in Global Production Networks (GPNs): Institution Role Perspective

Zhao Xiaoxia, Sun Xiaoni and Tony Fang

Global Production Networks (GPNs) may have great impact on regional and national economy and society through their production and distribution effects. Research of social upgrading in GPNs is in fact the synthesis investigation on the welfare of labors who have transformed from economic agents to social agents. We have constructed a framework that includes microeconomic, domestic political, international actors and the power of workers to evaluate the relationships between the external variables and outcome variables (social upgrading). Whether social upgrading is endogenous of economic upgrading or not, improving labor standards, enhancing labor capability and optimizing labor wealth by using relational organizations are the safeguards to implement social upgrading.
