Weller, Sally Anne (2006) The embeddedness of global production networks: The impact of crisis on Fiji's garment export sector. Environment and Planning A, 38 (7). pp. 1249-1267. ISSN 0308-518X

Abstract

In this paper the author explores how changing geopolitical conditions reconfigure network embeddedness and theorises the conditions of network disconnection and transformation. Through a case study of the changes in interfirm relationships within the Fiji – Australia garment-production network after Fiji’s 2000 political coup d’état, the author develops a relational and dynamic view of embeddedness, highlighting its multifaceted and multiscalar character and emphasising the interrelationships between embeddedness, trust, and power.
