The Harvard Globalization Survey Conference is an invitation-only workshop to
develop the design of the Harvard Globalization Survey.
The goal of the HGS project is to examine the way
governments, firms, employees, and nongovernmental
groups are responding to globalization. The project
involves coordinated surveys of a sample of firms and
employees in various industries, matching these with
surveys of trade associations and labor unions in the
same industries, and surveys of legislators representing
electoral districts in which the industries are
concentrated. The project focuses on the challenges
posed by international trade, investment, and
immigration flows, and how various actors are
responding in economic and political ways, either by
resisting or accelerating adjustment.
