Variety of Modes of Governance of a Global Value Chain: The Case of Tourism from Holland to Turkey

Terhorst, Pieter
Global value chains analysis has become an ever more important approach in economics and economic geography to study the globalization of different sectors. However, it is largely ignored in tourism research. This paper examines the modes of governance of the tourism value chain from Holland to Turkey. One of the most striking findings of this paper is the large variety of governance modes of that chain, not only within the same market segment but even within one firm. The second important finding is the importance of the specific context of the inbound country, to a much lesser extent than the outbound country. In other words, the chain is strongly embedded in the national/local political economic institutions of the inbound country but is fairly disembedded from those of the outbound country.


Enlightenment and Global History (ENGLOBE)
Peker, Ali Uzay(2013-10-31)
"ENGLOBE (""Enlightenment and Global History"") is a projected network of researchers concerned with Europe’s role in the process of globalization. Its thematic aims are located in the newly emerging supra-disciplinary field of Global History which provides a highly useful mode of reflection on the cultural and historical dimension of globalization processes. The Enlightenment has a double significance within this field. It was the first moment in history when questions and problems arising out of globaliza...
Intra-OIZ and Intra-Industry Knowledge Spillovers in Ankara: A Spatial Econometric Analysis
Erdil, Erkan (2018-06-01)
Network between the firms reveal the knowledge spillovers which is inevitable for economic growth of a country for neoclassical economists. In this study, existence of intra- OIZ and intra-industry knowledge spillovers in Ankara is tested by the help of an export decision function. As it considers the spatial dependence between the regional units, the spatial econometric method is preferred. The data set is taken from the “Field Research Survey” of SMEDO. The spatial effect is one third of the total effect ...

Economic globalization is increasingly affecting both the construction industry and academia. It is changing the traditional roles of civil engineers and construction managers. Cross-cultural collaboration and communication skills, multinational team management skills, the ability to overcome the social challenges of geographically distributed teams, and familiarity with construction materials, standards, and methods of foreign countries are vital for modern construction professionals. However, the traditio...
Innovation, networking and the new industrial clusters: the characteristics of networks and local innovation capabilities in the Turkish industrial clusters
Eraydin, A; Armatli-Koroglu, B (2005-07-01)
Elaborating on the literature on industrial districts, this paper suggests that innovation and networking are the two key issues, which provide the new generation industrial clusters' competitive capacity in the globalization process. The paper presents the findings on the innovative and networking capabilities of the three important industrial clusters of Turkey based on the data collected from the sample firms in each of these industrial clusters through in-depth interviews. The findings clearly show the ...
Macroeconomics of Climate Change in a Dualistic Economy
Acar Aytekin, Sevil; Voyvoda, Ebru; Yeldan, Alp Erinç (Elsevier Science, Oxford/Amsterdam , 2018-01-01)
Macroeconomics of Climate Change in a Dualistic Economy: A Regional General Equilibrium Analysis generates significant, genuinely novel insights about dual economies and sustainable economic growth. These insights are generalize-able and applicable worldwide. The authors overcome existing limitations in general equilibrium modeling. By concentrating on tensions between green growth and dualism, they consider the global efforts against climate change and opposition by specific countries based on economic dev...
