Gerpisa monthly seminar

Richard F. Doner, Gregory W. Noble and John Ravenhill, will draw on their recently published book – The Political Economy of Automotive Industrialization in East Asia (Oxford University Press, 2021

Through a study of the automotive industries in seven East Asian countries—China, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand— the talk will address the question of what makes for successful industrial upgrading, the process through which domestic firms acquire the capabilities to move into higher value-added activities at global levels of efficiency. The authors distinguish between two stylized but analytically useful levels of growth: extensive and intensive. In some countries, automotive industrialization has involved extensive growth, consisting largely of vehicle and components assembly and, in some cases, exports, primarily under the aegis of foreign producers operating in global value chains. In contrast, intensive growth occurs when local value added increases as a consequence of inputs from national producers, in turn resting on improvements in national technical capabilities. Their seven cases provide us not just with a mix of strategies but also variance in success. They explore the reasons for success and failure, and why some countries chose to make the investments required to successfully pursue an intensive strategy. Their focus is on the role of institutions specific to the automotive development strategy, and the political origins of these institutions.


Journée du Gerpisa 266

Tommaso Pardi présentera un travail en cours sur l’évolution de la réglementation européenne des émissions de CO2 dans le secteur automobile et ses impacts sur la transformation de l’offre automobile, et notamment son électrification. Il s’agira de comprendre à la fois la manière dont cette réglementation a été façonnée à Bruxelles par différents intérêts et groupes de pression, et ses conséquences concrètes sur l’offre automobile.

PANEL 5 Transport shift and re-inventing the automobile


Journée du Gerpisa 258

Since 2008, while the global automotive manufacturing has been faltering, the Chinese auto industry has been swiftly transformed into the largest producer in the world. The growth of the Chinese automakers is a close reflection of the Chinese manufacturing economy, and Geely Auto is one such best example. The Seminar is based on the book Geely Drives Out. The Rise of the New Chinese Automaker in the Global landscape, by Hua Wang, Giovanni Balcet and Wenxian Zhang, World Scientific, 2021 (forthcoming).


Journée du Gerpisa 259

The presentation of the book Lavorare in fabbrica oggi. Inchiesta sulle condizioni di lavoro in Fca/Cnh, result of a collective research conducted by the Fondazioni Di Vittorio and Sabattini, together with FIOM/CGIL (published by Fondazione Feltrinelli, 2020).
The book revives the practices of a workers’ inquiry to describe the lived experience of assembly work at FCA/CNH today. Based on an extensive survey, it illustrates the main results of a field research conducted on working conditions at FCA-CNH Group plants in Italy. In particular, it analyses the consequences of the change in work organisation following the transformation in the collective bargaining system and the introduction of organisational (Ergo-UAS and WCM) and technological innovations. Ultimately, the book aims to highlight the critical aspects of these changes from the workers’ point of view.
