"Firms have to adjust constantly to the challenges posed by globalisation. Understanding these adjustments are of immense scientific and policy interest."
The Globalisation, Productivity and Technology programme examines the relationship between firms choices and those of their competitors about the internationalisation of production. Research focuses on the different decisions that firms make in how to serve international markets (or not), which markets they choose to serve, and where they choose to locate their production globally. A prominent theme of the research considers in turn the effect that these international outsourcing (or offshoring), exporting and foreign direct investment have on the performance of these firms. A newer research strand has begun to dig deeper into these decisions affect the products the firm produces and their quality. This research uses both theoretical modelling and econometric analysis of large micro level data sets. Much of the work is based on firm data for the UK. However, research also looks at other countries, for example China, Ireland, Sweden and Ghana.
The research is organised under the following themes
