Dear colleagues

We are pleased to announce the Alan Rugman visiting fellow  for the 
2016/17 academic year, hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for 
International Business at the Henley Business School, University of 
*LienaKano*is an Assistant Professor of Strategy and Global Management 
at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary, Canada. Her 
research interests lie at the intersection of international business, 
strategic management, and entrepreneurship. She develops novel 
applications of comparative institutional analysis to study business 
phenomena such as the governance of family firms, emerging economy 
multinationals, multinational business networks, the global value 
chains, trading favours and global sustainability crises. Her particular 
focus is on microfoundations that underlie complex governance decisions. 
Her work has been published in California Management Review, 
Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Business History Review, Journal 
of World Business and other high-quality academic outlets.

The Alan Rugman Visiting Fellowship was established in 2015. This is an 
annual award which honours the work of the late Professor Alan Rugman, 
and is therefore available to scholars whose work is explicitly linked 
to topics aligned with his academic interests. The award is in part 
available thanks to a donation from Helen Rugman in memory to her late 
husband. The inaugural  Alan Rugman Visiting Fellow for 2015/16 was Dr 
Chang Hoon Oh of Simon Fraser University, Canada. Details on the 
programme can be found at:

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), and are seeking to develop joint research with our 

Applicants must  be actively engaged in research. Unlike the Dunning 
Fellowship programme, we do not restrict applications to early- and 
mid-career, and applicants at any stage of their career may apply. 
However, we have a preference for those at an earlier stage of their 
career. I am sure you will join with me in congratulating Liena.

Kind regards
