This research presents an summary of the way the Bangladeshi leather-based price chain is organised and ruled. It analyses how the leather-based processing and leather-based goods/footwear subsectors are built-in into the worldwide industry and to what volume casual preparations together with illicit practices are conducive to international industry access. energy kinfolk are dissected alongside the price chain, to be able to examine how neighborhood manufacturers adapt to upholding competitiveness. the result of the paintings convey the necessity to devise upgrading innovations which pay heed to the truth of casual dynamics in a world price chain (GVC) to enhance the neighborhood manufacturers’ competitiveness. The GVC viewpoint was once mixed with issues on upgrading, subcontracting, middlemen and informality to effectively examine the complexity of the transactions within the chain. the knowledge of this research are drawn from empirical box reviews in Dhaka, Bangladesh and different sections of the overseas leather-based worth chain throughout the period of time of 2010 to 2014. A qualitative examine method used to be complemented with quantitative methods.

Facebook und Co.: Eine soziologische Analyse von Interaktionsformen in Online Social Networks

On-line Social Networks gehören zu den am schnellsten wachsenden Phänomenen des Internets. Es stellt sich dabei die Frage, wie sich derartige virtuelle soziale Netzwerke auf bestehende Beziehungsstrukturen auswirken. Im Rahmen einer empirischen Befragung von Facebook-NutzerInnen untersucht Bernadette Kneidinger die unterschiedlichen Interaktionsformen im Spannungsfeld on-line- as opposed to Offline-Netzwerke.

This makes it possible to sketch a multi-faceted picture of the process and activities under study (Creswell 2014). After introducing the research design, which links the development of a conceptual framework, the definition of research questions and data collection coherently (Fig. 1), the study site and research methods will be presented. Ultimately, limitations that are inevitably entailed by research in a socio-cultural environment that differs greatly from the author’s will be addressed. 1 suggests a linear, hierarchical approach, but many of the stages are interrelated and activities were carried out parallel to each other.

Industrial subcontractors feed intermediate products into the parent firm’s highly complex manufacturing process. In commercial subcontracting trading companies hire enterprises to produce entire products and market them on their own. The lower the complexity of the product and labour costs the greater the incidence of multi-tiered subcontracting (Pratim Sahu 2010). 3 Subcontracting in Global Value Chains 17 Fig. 2 Subcontracting production. Source Own illustration Three reasons for subcontracting relate to production cost factors (Holl 2008; Deavers 1997; Webster et al.

What upgrading strategies are conducive to improving the competitiveness of Bangladesh’s leather industry? 28 2 Conceptual Approaches (a) What upgrading strategies does the leather industry require to address weaknesses and seize opportunities in the global leather value chain? (b) How are upgrading strategies to be devised that cater to the reality of informal dynamics in a GVC in order to improve the local producers’ competitiveness?
