Abstract [en]

In this paper, the global production network (GPN) approach is employed to probe how regional institutions are functioning in the music industry and how they affect value flows in the royalty system of the music industry in a given territory. Besides answering these questions, the author endeavours to fill one theoretical gap in the GPN analytical framework that the processes between regional institutions and GPNs are seen as complementary interactions behind the process of strategic coupling, yet without any clear conceptualized discourse. This theoretical gap makes the research on institutions within the GPN analytical framework rare and seemingly less important. Through the case study of the music industry in Stockholm, Sweden, a crucial node of the global production network of music, the author has truly brought regional institutions into the spotlight. Accordingly, the process of the interactions between regional institutions and GPNs has been defined as the process of strategic participation in this paper. Moreover, additional discourses of technology and inter-industrial synergies have been opened, because previous studies of GPNs have discussed the GPN approach and its framework regarding mostly regional development leading to some misunderstandings about the position of technology and the presence of inter-industrial synergies in researching single industry with the GPN approach. In conclusion, regional institutions are playing significant roles in the music industry in Stockholm that points out the necessity and significance of conceptualizing the process of strategic participation. More studies on institutions and the concept of strategic participation are needed in order to find more evidence and enrich GPNs literature.

Abstract [zh]

在这篇文章中,全球产品网络方法被用于研究地区机构如何在音乐行业中产生作用,以及它们如何影响特定地方的音乐行业的版权系统中价值的流动。除了回答这两个问题,作者试图填补全球产品网络中的一个理论空隙。这个理论空隙是地区机构和全球产品网络间的互动过程被看作是战略耦合的补充物,但是却缺少相应的理论论述。这个理论空隙造成了关于机构的作用的分析在全球产品网络分析框架中的缺失和似乎不重要。通过斯德哥尔摩的音乐行业的案例研究,作者将地区机构放在研究的中心位置。因此,地区机构和全球产品网络间的互动过程被定义为战略参与。此外,关于科技和产业间协同的讨论也被打开,因为过去关于全球产品网络的研究多数针对地区发展议题,导致了在研究单一产业时对科技以及产业间协同的论述中存在误解。总之,地区机构在斯德哥尔摩的音乐产业中扮演重要的角色,这指出了概念化战略参与的必要性和意义。然而为了找到更多证据以及丰富全球产品网络论述,未来更多关于机构以及战略参与概念的研究将被需要。
