The rapid process of globalisation is among the most striking features of the current economic landscape. It raises new challenges for policy makers, particularly linked to the impacts of globalisation on production and employment in OECD countries. How should they respond?

This compendium brings together several studies on globalisation carried out over the past few years. The work aimed at strengthening the evidence base on globalisation, which should ultimately enable the development of policies to address the key concerns.

The studies address the main areas of OECD work on the globalisation of value chains, and served as a basis for a synthesis report on the subject that was published in 2007 under the title Staying Competitive in the Global Economy: Moving Up the Value Chain.
