The World Input-Output databases (WIOD) on global value chains and international trade flows. With increasing globalisation, production processes are increasingly becoming fragmented across borders. This fundamentally changes the nature of international trade with deep consequences for the location of production. The databases provide the opportunity to analyse the consequences of this international fragmentation of production. For example, it allows us to assess the shifting patterns in demand for skills in labour markets, or for local emissions of air pollutants. Further related research is highlighted for each of the databases.
