Professors Rose and Wei co-edit new International Business book
The book, entitled 'Multiple Dimensions of Institutional Complexity in International Business Research' provides a fresh overview of many novel international business research challenges.
Professor Elizabeth L. Rose and Professor Yingqi Wei, Chairs in International Business, are co-editors of The Multiple Dimensions of Institutional Complexity in International Business Research (with A. Verbeke and R. van Tulder). The book is now published by Emerald and features a chapter by the editors, entitled ‘Institutions 2.0: Which Institutions Matter in IB Research?’
The Multiple Dimensions of Institutional Complexity in International Business Research provides a fresh overview of many novel international business research challenges as they pertain to salient institutional dimensions with a locational component.
The first part of the book includes chapters honouring the work of Professor D. Eleanor Westney (MIT). These chapters address globalization-related challenges in the realm of the ‘new normal’ of tendencies toward populism and de-globalization. They focus on how this new normal, as well as various rapidly-evolving institutions, are likely to affect the functioning of multinational enterprises. The subsequent parts of the volume explore the impacts on international business of home country institutions; host country institutions; cross-country and subnational institutions; and, finally, sustainability pressures.
The book is strongly focused on the multiple contemporary dimensions of institutions and how they affect internationally-operating firms. It is a must read for scholars and postgraduate students interested in the new normal on a global scale.
