Vida Vanchan, Professor, Geography and Planning

Vida Vanchan, professor of geography and planning, coauthored the chapter “Risk Management and Reduction in Global Supply Chains and Production Networks: Reshoring and Rightshoring Versus Offshoring” in the recently published book The Political Economy of Industrial Strategy in the UK (C. Berry, J. Froud, and T. Baker, eds.; Agenda Publishing, 2021). In offering a broad political economy perspective on economic statecraft and development in the UK, this book focuses on the political and institutional foundations of industrial policy, the value of "foundational" economic practices, the challenge of greening capitalism and addressing regional inequalities, and the new financial and corporate governance structures required to radicalize industrial strategy.
