Labour conditions in Value chains
The case of ICT firms in Madagascar
This paper analyzes the potential effects of insertion in value chains, gender, firm’s skill intensity and the skill level of an occupation on labour conditions in Malagasy ICT firms. The results indicate insertion does affect the atmosphere within firms, access to a good health insurance and safety rules. But it appears other items defining labour conditions do not depend only on insertion in value chains. Gender, firms’ skill intensity and the skill level of an occupation combined with the insertion factor also have an impact on labour conditions in these firms.
