Global value chains (GVCs) are changing not only the way firms organize production but also the policies that influence social and economic development. In this chapter I make a first effort to develop and illustrate this framework. First, I present a typology of industrial innovation policies and extend it to “GVC-oriented policies”, i.e. those policies that target the fostering of production and technology upgrading through GVCs. The examples from trade and foreign investment policies, and from innovation policies, confirm that a radical rethinking and theorizing of policies is necessary and urgent. Future research will need to move further and deeper into this direction.
