Research Interests

  • My research efforts and associated outputs feature in three areas: a) Governance issues related to overcoming environmental and commercial risks, b) information and communication technologies (ICT) and international business, and c) methodological issues in international business.
  • Recent work is geared at rising powers, emerging markets and drivers of economic change. I am associated with the rising powers and global standards network. See www.risingpowers.net/ for the research agenda pursued via this network.

a PhD supervisions

I welcome PhD applications that fall within the broader CIBER research agenda and my research interests in particular.

  • Rising powers and emerging countries: How does the economic dynamism in emerging countries, in particular China, India and Brasil, transform the contours of the global economy and with what consequences? How does the rise of lead firms from these contexts challenge IB theory and point at potentially different patterns of growth? What are the economic and social outcomes of these transformation processes?
  • Global value chains and international business: Global Value Chains (GVCs) have exploded in the past decade and refer to the international dispersion of design, production, assembly, marketing and distribution of services, activities, and products. Analytically, frameworks for GVC analysis have been developed outside the IB field and only recently recognition has developed to build on these frameworks and incorporate these in IB thinking. What are the consequences for firms (especially smaller firms) to engage and work within GVCs, what are the opportunities to engage and generate both economic and social value? What are the antecedents and consequences of insertion into GVCs and governance dynamics for cross-border collaboration? What about economic and social upgrading?
  • Business strategies and capability development: Business strategies, capabilities and structures vary and change within and across different countries and institutional contexts. Emerging market firms are frequently challenging conventional thinking about innovation and economic development (reverse innovation, catch-up strategies). What are the implications for development of business strategies and capability development?
  • Information and communication technologies and international business: ICTs have tremendous impacts on inter-firm partnerships and facilitation of relational exchange. However, the impacts of not uniquely positive (e.g. “virtuality trap”) and context dependent. New forms of ICTs and social media allow for new governance modes and new forms of innovation (e.g. crowdsourcing, open innovation, open access in scholarship, etc.).
