institutional influences on various firm-level governance
mechanisms and their strategic and performance consequences.
The visiting fellowship programme is aimed at creating
opportunities for researchers at the early-to-mid stages of their
career to visit and collaborate with academics at the Centre, and
to utilise resources associated with the John H. Dunning Library.
Dunning Fellows are expected to be actively engaged in the field
of international business (broadly defined), and with an
inclination towards multi-disciplinary and theory-driven research,
in the tradition of John Dunning. Visiting fellows are expected
to give at least one seminar, and to spend between 2 and 4 weeks
in residence over an academic year (between September and June).
I am sure you will join with me in congratulating the successful
