The dark sides of globalized production have recently been given a more prominent role in the literature by invoking the concept of disarticulations (Bair/Werner 2011; Bair et al. 2013; Argent 2016; McGrath 2017). The concept calls for moving beyond presentist, often celebratory, accounts of value chain inclusion towards an analytical focus on uneven development: i.e., forms of devaluation, disinvestment and displacement that make value chains possible (Bair/Werner 2011; Werner 2016). This panel focuses on the methodological challenges of accounting for the multi-scalar and multi-temporal processes through which commodity chains serve as mechanisms of uneven development.
