Gary Herrigel is interested in comparative political economy, organizations and alternative forms of governance throughout the developed and developing world. He is author of three books, most recently Globale Qualitätsproduktion. Transnationale Produktionssysteme in der Automobilzulieferindustrie und im Maschinenbau (Frankfurt aM: Campus Verlag, 2017—with Volker Wittke and Ulrich Voskamp). This book examines recursive learning processes, upgrading and governance in German manufacturing globalization. Currently, he is working on a variety of projects, all having to do with the relationship between transnational self-optimizing governance architectures, learning and sustainability in industry and agriculture.
