McGrath, Siobhan (2018) 'Dis/articulations and the interrogation of development in GPN research.', Progress in human geography., 42 (4). pp. 509-528.
In spite of serving as the purported goal of the global production network (GPN) approach, development has been left undefined in the GPN literature, with ‘GPN 2.0’ now offering an impoverished understanding of development. This article reviews the elaboration of the ‘core concepts’ of the GPN approach: value, power, embeddedness – and development. I argue that the dis/articulations perspective is useful in offering a critical interrogation of d/Development, and that this has implications for value, power and embeddedness. The disarticulations perspective takes the determination of value into account and highlights the role of borders and discursive boundaries in structuring power relations.
