Aim and Background of the Workshop:

IB researchers increasingly call for further integration of Finance and IB (Agmon, 2006; Bowe, Filatotchev & Marshall, 2010; Cumming, Filatotchev, Knill, Reeb & Senbet, 2017).  The goal of the 5th IB & Finance Paper Development Workshop is to create an interactive forum for both IB/Finance researchers. We also encourage interdisciplinary contributions from Strategy, Accounting and Management with international and/or Finance perspectives. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

·      Current topics in managing and financing international business activities (Brexit, global protectionism, economic disintegration)

·      Governance and international finance (i.e. risk behaviour, agency cost)

·      Institutional context and international finance (i.e. liability of foreignness in capital markets, local financial context, legitimacy, isomorphism)

·      International capital structure and internal capital markets (i.e. diversification, international transfer pricing, arbitrage, taxation)

·      Ownership effects on internationalization (i.e. family ownership, institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds)

·      Financial risk management in internationalization (i.e. hedging, trade finance, risk reporting)

·      International strategic finance (listing location, location specific financial advantages, project finance, syndication)

·      Firm level issues in financing internationalization (SMEs, MNEs, EMNEs, born globals, export finance and FDI finance, joint ventures)

·      Integrating IB and finance theories (TCE, RBV, OLI, real options, agency and institutional theory).
