Mapping the distribution of risk, value and power in retail supply chains: the implications for job creation.
Principal Investigator: von Broembsen, M
The topic of the proposed research paper addresses the policy challenge of determining the appropriate regulatory responses to stimulate small businesses to create jobs. Several regulatory initiatives (such as B-BBEE Act and Codes of Good Practice; Competition and Procurement legislation and regulations) aim to facilitate ‘effective’, ‘meaningful’ participation by small businesses and ‘equitable redistribution of income’ in local supply chains. The research paper will be based on empirical work and aims at mapping the distribution of risk, value and power in retail supply chains. Download PDF
