Short description:

European countries face challenges in delivering sustainable and inclusive economic growth. Demographic developments related to child birth, death, and migration underpin the dynamics of Europe's population and the challenges Member States face. The global value chains of most companies are consequently generating diverse and multiple interactions between individuals and organizations. Beyond this, the question of effective employment policy at the macro-level arises, and what tools can allow policymakers to engage with evidence-based decision-making. We also explore at the workplace level how the process of restructuring is affecting different groups of workers and how a focus on employee health and wellbeing can have a larger effect on organizational performance.

In light of these developments, this symposium welcomes papers that explore:

  • how workforces and skills develop to match demand for labor;
  • how employment policies secure labor market participation;
  • how social policies protect the most vulnerable and enable their contribution to society; and
  • how population dynamics and migration interact shaping labor supply and demand.

                                                                             

We welcome comparative papers as well as single country cases, theoretical and empirical papers, which suggest forms of response to how to raise the employment of those groups most affected in particular; and how to maintain healthy and productive workplaces at a time of austerity.

Sauvant ([log in to unmask]) Managing Editor: Marion A. Creach ([log in to unmask]) *Investment facilitation: leaving the past behind* * <#m_5114511922102785472__edn1> by Felipe Hees, Henrique Choer Moraes, Pedro Mendonça Cavalcante, and Pedro Barreto da Rocha Paranhos** <#m_5114511922102785472__edn2> The Joint Ministerial Statement on Investment Facilitation for Development ,[1] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn3> co-sponsored by 70 WTO members during the Ministerial Conference in December 2017, has initiated a dialogue on investment facilitation at the WTO. In a particularly challenging moment for multilateral decision-making, the statement was co-sponsored by members from virtually all the informal groupings at the WTO, including least-developed countries; the African group; developed countries; the BRICS; African, Caribbean and Pacific countries; small, vulnerable economies; and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas. Since then, some 30 more WTO members have joined the informal dialogue organized by the Friends of Investment Facilitation for Development.[2] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn4> India introduced investment facilitation into the WTO in 2016 with a proposal on “Trade Facilitation in Services Agreement”.[3] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn5> In 2017, Russia circulated a proposal specifically focusing on investment facilitation,[4] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn6> which was soon followed by a Chinese proposal.[5] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn7> Brazil subsequently submitted a draft agreement on investment facilitation[6] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn8> inspired by its Cooperation and Facilitation Investment Agreement (CFIA) template—a bilateral treaty premised on binding rules on investment facilitation. For Brazil, investment facilitation is about transparent access to information about the regulatory and institutional environment in the host country; the streamlining of procedures associated with incoming FDI; and the post-establishment relationship between host countries and investors. Brazil negotiated CFIAs since 2015 with developing countries in Latin America, Africa and India, and two of them have already entered into force. In a recent *Perspective*,[7] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn9> Kavaljit Singh raised questions relating to the discussions on investment facilitation at the WTO. We offer insights and clarifications from the Brazilian approach to advance this conversation: - Multilateral disciplines at the WTO, as those adopted by any other international rule-making institution, deliberately affect the policy space of its members on the whole range of areas covered by its agreements, from services to public stockholding for food security. Still, an agreement on investment facilitation will not prevent members “to choose the tools that are consistent with their peculiar administrative structures.” Rather, it would help members to implement a basic legal framework in this area. - Under the Brazilian proposal to the WTO, national policy decisions related to foreign investment are not subject to dispute-settlement provisions. The latter are limited to the implementation of the proposed agreement. Likewise, the most-favored-nation clause in the draft does not apply to policy matters. - Certainly, many investment measures are taken at sub-federal levels, and most of Singh’s concerns relate to these levels. In contrast, Brazil advocates to focus primarily on the federal level; sub-federal measures would be left for a later stage. This view is premised on the understanding that the implementation of facilitation measures at the federal level is already complex since it has an impact on a wide range of disciplines, involves numerous competent authorities and affects different procedures. - Regarding the single electronic window, Brazil proposes voluntary participation by sub-federal entities. If the latter so choose, they could add their own establishment approval procedures to the single electronic window managed by the federal government. While the Brazilian proposal seeks to encourage all spheres of government to achieve digitalization and integration, only federal authorities would be mandated to follow the envisaged rules. - The approval process for inward investment sometimes requires the involvement of a large number of agencies. Investors are asked to approach each of them individually, sometimes facing overlapping requirements. This is avoided with single windows, which channel interactions by setting up one-stop shops. This is precisely the reason why single electronic windows can have a real facilitating role for governments and investors, especially when multiple authorities are involved. - Singh also raises concerns about the “vast responsibilities” allocated to national focal points. The Brazilian draft only requires focal points to implement the agreement. These responsibilities will add to those already associated with the implementation of the “wide range of investment-facilitation measures at the national and sub-national levels” being carried out by “most members.” There is nothing suggesting that national focal points would set policies or include sub-federal levels. Importantly, the Joint Ministerial Statement clearly states that the investment facilitation discussions “shall not address market access, investment protection, and investor-state dispute settlement.”[8] <#m_5114511922102785472__edn10> By excluding these controversial issues, WTO members are able to focus on an issue that directly contributes to improving the domestic governance of developing countries without reviving the negative experience of past multilateral investment discussions. This is the value-added of investment facilitation. ------------------------------ * <#m_5114511922102785472__ednref1> *The Columbia FDI Perspectives are a forum for public debate.

Investment facilitation: leaving the past behind*

The Joint Ministerial Statement on Investment Facilitation for Development,[1] co-sponsored by 70 WTO members during the Ministerial Conference in December 2017, has initiated a dialogue on investment facilitation at the WTO. In a particularly challenging moment for multilateral decision-making, the statement was co-sponsored by members from virtually all the informal groupings at the WTO, including least-developed countries; the African group; developed countries; the BRICS; African, Caribbean and Pacific countries; small, vulnerable economies; and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas. Since then, some 30 more WTO members have joined the informal dialogue organized by the Friends of Investment Facilitation for Development.[2]
 
India introduced investment facilitation into the WTO in 2016 with a proposal on  “Trade Facilitation in Services Agreement”.[3] In 2017, Russia circulated a proposal specifically focusing on investment facilitation,[4] which was soon followed by a Chinese proposal.[5] Brazil subsequently submitted a draft agreement on investment facilitation[6] inspired by its Cooperation and Facilitation Investment Agreement (CFIA) template—a bilateral treaty premised on binding rules on investment facilitation. For Brazil, investment facilitation is about transparent access to information about the regulatory and institutional environment in the host country; the streamlining of procedures associated with incoming FDI; and the post-establishment relationship between host countries and investors. Brazil negotiated CFIAs since 2015 with developing countries in Latin America, Africa and India, and two of them have already entered into force.
 
In a recent Perspective,[7] Kavaljit Singh raised questions relating to the discussions on investment facilitation at the WTO. We offer insights and clarifications from the Brazilian approach to advance this conversation:
  • Multilateral disciplines at the WTO, as those adopted by any other international rule-making institution, deliberately affect the policy space of its members on the whole range of areas covered by its agreements, from services to public stockholding for food security. Still, an agreement on investment facilitation will not prevent members “to choose the tools that are consistent with their peculiar administrative structures.” Rather, it would help members to implement a basic legal framework in this area.
  • Under the Brazilian proposal to the WTO, national policy decisions related to foreign investment are not subject to dispute-settlement provisions. The latter are limited to the implementation of the proposed agreement. Likewise, the most-favored-nation clause in the draft does not apply to policy matters.
  • Certainly, many investment measures are taken at sub-federal levels, and most of Singh’s concerns relate to these levels. In contrast, Brazil advocates to focus primarily on the federal level; sub-federal measures would be left for a later stage. This view is premised on the understanding that the implementation of facilitation measures at the federal level is already complex since it has an impact on a wide range of disciplines, involves numerous competent authorities and affects different procedures.
  • Regarding the single electronic window, Brazil proposes voluntary participation by sub-federal entities. If the latter so choose, they could add their own establishment approval procedures to the single electronic window managed by the federal government. While the Brazilian proposal seeks to encourage all spheres of government to achieve digitalization and integration, only federal authorities would be mandated to follow the envisaged rules.
  • The approval process for inward investment sometimes requires the involvement of a large number of agencies. Investors are asked to approach each of them individually, sometimes facing overlapping requirements. This is avoided with single windows, which channel interactions by setting up one-stop shops. This is precisely the reason why single electronic windows can have a real facilitating role for governments and investors, especially when multiple authorities are involved.
  • Singh also raises concerns about the “vast responsibilities” allocated to national focal points. The Brazilian draft only requires focal points to implement the agreement. These responsibilities will add to those already associated with the implementation of the “wide range of investment-facilitation measures at the national and sub-national levels” being carried out by “most members.” There is nothing suggesting that national focal points would set policies or include sub-federal levels. 
Importantly, the Joint Ministerial Statement clearly states that the investment facilitation discussions “shall not address market access, investment protection, and investor-state dispute settlement.”[8] By excluding these controversial issues, WTO members are able to focus on an issue that directly contributes to improving the domestic governance of developing countries without reviving the negative experience of past multilateral investment discussions. This is the value-added of investment facilitation.

Introduction

The publication draws attention to the human side of the implications of the digital age. More importantly to the cultural aspects of work across national borders, cultural challenges faced by international virtual teams, management dilemmas relative to the resource issues when dealing with cultural diversity and Human Resource Management challenges confronted by technical environments and nationally qualified labour shortages.

Objective

Unlike Hofstede’s (2001) “collective programming of the mind” or Trompenaars and Turner’s (1998) problem resolution collective, Hoecklin (1995: 24) offers the following definition: ‘culture is not a ‘thing’ which can be experienced through the senses, just as ‘needs’, ‘social systems’, ‘evil’, and ‘peace’, are not directly tangible or visible. They are ideas constructed within the society. ‘Culture’ does not exist in a single easily defined form for specific goal for a specifiable number of people in a bounded area. And, obviously, a society does not consist of individuals with entirely uniform mental characteristics or personalities”. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Hoecklin does not provide a homogeneous form of culture, one that is easily assigned a grade or ranking, or cluster when compared with others. Given this more pertinent definition of culture, questions arise as to the relevancy of existing cultural models in a globalised world of rapid change and an international push towards digitalisation. Successive researchers have proposed several means to update the Hofstedean model and cultural dimensions. Recognising that the initial four components are now dated and due to Hofstede’s premise that culture is static, interested parties seek to upgrade the original rankings thereby, increasing the relevancy to a globalised twenty-first century. The major objective of this book is to promote new cultural models representative of the contemporary world environment subject to digital transformation.

Target Audience

The target audience of this book comprises professionals and researchers working in the fields of management and associated disciplines. Management practitioner: reference/guidebook to better formulate and design change management; evaluate possible impacts to ‘business as normal’; revise HR management policies and avoid ambiguous circumstances. Academics: use either as course texts or to supplement course -related materials; enhance curricula to incorporate new cultural models; identify areas of future research. Psychologists and sociologists: enhance current practice to incorporate new cultural models and to identify areas of future research. Consultants [consultancies]: enhance current practice to incorporate cultural appreciation.

Recommended Topics

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following: 
I- New definitions of culture: 
*proponents of culture and their impact of management; 
*Post-Hofstedean models; 
*culture and group behaviour in the digital era; 
*determinants of shared culture, and 
*the fallacy of national cultures. 
II- Digital era:

These pressures are exogenous features of organizational environment, but they also involve an endogenous component arising from the recursive relationship between organizational action and the evolving context (Perlow at al., 2002). In everyday organizational practices, actors produce and reproduce a variety of temporal structures, which in return shape the temporal rhythm and form of these practices (Orlikowski & Yates, 2002; Karmowska et al., 2017). Recent works in organization studies have begun the search for ways to analytically and empirically handle the temporal complexity faced by organizational actors in these processes (Hussenot & Missonier, 2016). Time forms an inseparable part of every human experience, where past and future are reflected in the present (Heidegger, 1962). In order to grasp the temporal nature of organizational phenomena it is necessary to consider how the organization’s existence is a reflection of both the past and the anticipation of the future (George & Jones, 2000; Hernes, 2014). While often falling prey to short-termism, organizations are increasingly challenged to address distant pasts and futures (Schultz and Hernes, 2013). In this sub-theme we aim to discuss the nexus between, on the one hand, the demands of speed and adaptions and, on the other hand, the challenges of addressing distant futures. We make the assumption that if most organizations become too short term, they will compromise employee welfare, organizational success, and societal well-being (Polman, 2014; Slawinski & Bansal, 2015). This SWG is intended to provide the opportunity for organizational scholars to appreciate the temporal qualities of their research phenomena and to position their work within the broader studies on time and organizations. We are open to variety of approaches to studying organization and time as we strive to identify and build more comprehensive theoretical frameworks on the subject. Our goal is to build an inclusive conversation that appeals to many theories and methods within organizational theory and practice. In keeping with the EGOS 2019 Colloquium theme, we are particularly interested in the temporal aspects that contribute to insights and understanding with a focus on a better future for societies and organizations. Studies across industries and markets are invited at micro- as well as macro-levels of analysis. We also invite diverse philosophical methods and concepts as well as methods of enquiry that permit the temporal nature of organizational processes and practices to be captured. Both conceptual and empirical contributions are welcome. Papers may address, but are not limited to the following themes: Ø How experience and inheritance of the past (plus anticipation of the future) affect the framing of the present in organizations and shape organizational change Ø How organizational time perspectives influence organizational efforts to address societal grand challenges Ø Organizational outcomes of temporal myopia or short-termism Ø Relationship between growing inter-connectedness and acceleration in organizational life and their effect on long-term thinking Ø Consequences of the growing disharmony between natural and organizationally-imposed temporal rhythms Ø Dynamics between on-going temporal structures in organizations and distant futures Ø Continuity, change and distant futures Ø Connecting distant pasts and distant futures -- challenges and dilemmas Ø Organizational power and politics in the nexus between short- and long-term thinking Ø Organizational history – conflict and mediation mechanisms Ø Learning and organizational forgetting over time Ø Interpretations of time in organizational culture Ø Philosophical concepts and methodological dilemmas in studying time in organizations. *References* George, J.M. & Jones, G.R.

Call for Papers

 

Contemporary organizations operate increasingly according to a logic of speed and instantaneity while also shortening their temporal horizons. These pressures are exogenous features of organizational environment, but they also involve an endogenous component arising from the recursive relationship between organizational action and the evolving context (Perlow at al., 2002). In everyday organizational practices, actors produce and reproduce a variety of temporal structures, which in return shape the temporal rhythm and form of these practices (Orlikowski & Yates, 2002; Karmowska et al., 2017). Recent works in organization studies have begun the search for ways to analytically and empirically handle the temporal complexity faced by organizational actors in these processes (Hussenot & Missonier, 2016).

 

Time forms an inseparable part of every human experience, where past and future are reflected in the present (Heidegger, 1962). In order to grasp the temporal nature of organizational phenomena it is necessary to consider how the organization’s existence is a reflection of both the past and the anticipation of the future (George & Jones, 2000; Hernes, 2014).   While often falling prey to short-termism, organizations are increasingly challenged to address distant pasts and futures (Schultz and Hernes, 2013). In this sub-theme we aim to discuss the nexus between, on the one hand, the demands of speed and adaptions and, on the other hand, the challenges of addressing distant futures. We make the assumption that if most organizations become too short term, they will compromise employee welfare, organizational success, and societal well-being (Polman, 2014; Slawinski & Bansal, 2015).

 

This SWG is intended to provide the opportunity for organizational scholars to appreciate the temporal qualities of their research phenomena and to position their work within the broader studies on time and organizations. We are open to variety of approaches to studying organization and time as we strive to identify and build more comprehensive theoretical frameworks on the subject.

We also invite diverse philosophical methods and concepts as well as methods of enquiry that permit the temporal nature of organizational processes and practices to be captured. Both conceptual and empirical contributions are welcome.

 

 Papers may address, but are not limited to the following themes:

 

Ø  How experience and inheritance of the past (plus anticipation of the future) affect the framing of the present in organizations and shape organizational change

Ø  How organizational time perspectives influence organizational efforts to address societal grand challenges

Ø  Organizational outcomes of temporal myopia or short-termism

Ø  Relationship between growing inter-connectedness and acceleration in organizational life and their effect on long-term thinking

Ø  Consequences of the growing disharmony between natural and organizationally-imposed temporal rhythms

Ø  Dynamics between on-going temporal structures in organizations and distant futures

Ø  Continuity, change and distant futures

Ø  Connecting distant pasts and distant futures -- challenges and dilemmas

Ø  Organizational power and politics in the nexus between short- and long-term thinking

Ø  Organizational history – conflict and mediation mechanisms

Ø  Learning and organizational forgetting over time

Ø  Interpretations of time in organizational culture

Ø  Philosophical concepts and methodological dilemmas in studying time in organizations.

Recent studies have pointed out that new forms of state capitalism developed over the last 20-25 years are substantially different from state-owned enterprises (SOEs) that operated in the 1970s and the 1980s. While traditional SOEs used to be focused mostly on domestic markets, international operations are critically important for modern state-affiliated corporations owned or supported by the state. An emerging stream of articles published recently have explored how state ownership is associated with internationalization, focusing mostly on how SOEs enter foreign markets and whether state ownership constitutes an advantage or an obstacle for international expansion. We aim to develop further this stream of research by exploring the effect of national and international context on operations of state-affiliated corporations. Existing studies that explore SOEs’ strategies, governance, internationalization, and performance tend to make general conclusions about the implications of state control. While SOEs in different countries share some important characteristics, we believe that the current literature does not do justice to substantial cross-national differences in how state-affiliated MNCs operate and how they are governed. With the proposed special issue, we aim to stimulate more research that explores how national and international context affects operations of state-affiliated corporations. 

 

Potential topics for the Special Issue submissions

 

We encourage qualitative and large-n studies that advance knowledge about state-affiliated MNCs that heavily rely on state support for their international expansion by exploring the following topics:

  • How state support helps state-affiliated MNCs to enter foreign markets
  • Financial protectionism and state-affiliated MNCs
  • Politics at home and abroad, and state-affiliated MNCs
  • Which regions and industries do state-affiliated MNCs prefer to enter?
  • Home / host country corruption and operations of state-affiliated MNCs
  • Strategies of state-affiliated MNC in host countries with highly competitive environment
  • Acquisitions and strategic alliances as entry modes used by state-affiliated MNCs

 

Potential topics about the role of national context in shaping cross-national differences in models of state capitalism include, but are not limited to the following:

  • How national context affects corporate governance and management practices of state-affiliated corporations (targeting domestic markets or foreign markets)
  • How social responsibility expectations are defined for state-affiliated corporations in different national contexts
  • State capitalism and “institutional voids”
  • Politics, power and state-affiliated corporations
  • Institutional infrastructure that enables new forms of state capitalism
  • Cross-national differences in how states provide support for “national champions” (loans, stock participation, subsidies, licenses, tax breaks, political support, etc.)
  • Cross-national differences in how states maintain control over strategic industries (oil & gas, electric power, transport, banking, etc.)

 

These topics are not meant to be exhaustive but merely illustrative of topics that would be suitable for the Special Issue. We seek manuscripts offering either theoretical or empirical contributions, but prefer submissions offering both.

 

Submission Process

 

Authors should submit their manuscripts online via the Journal of World Business EVISE submission system between the 1st and the 31st of December 2018. The link for submitting manuscript is: https://www.evise.com/profile/#/JWB/login

Below please find a Call for papers on equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The deadline is January 31, 2019. *CALL FOR PAPERS* *Special Issue for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. An international Journal* *Progresses, Setbacks and New Challenges in EDI* *Guest Editors:* Tania Saba, School of Industrial Relations, Université de Montréal, Canada. [log in to unmask] Joana Vassilopoulou, Brunel Business School, Brunel University London, UK [log in to unmask] Eddy Ng, Rowe School of Business, Dalhousie University, Canada, [log in to unmask] Mustafa Ozbilgin, Brunel Business School, Brunel University London, UK [log in to unmask] Despite all the research efforts as well as organizational and political initiatives aimed at promoting diversity, inequalities persist. Furthermore, while workplaces claim to pay more attention to diversity, new forms of discrimination and barriers, more complex and more subtle, make it more difficult to detect biases and prejudices. We invite conceptual and empirical interventions that explore the advances, setbacks, drifts and transformations facing diversity, equality and inclusion. Policy makers, organisations, unions and civil society institutions are seeking to maintain or change existing norms and institutionalized practices aimed at enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Processes of institutional and organizational change are often uneven and contested, yielding both positive and negative outcomes: be it enhancing or reducing inequalities, worsening or improving working conditions, increasing or reducing the asymmetries of power between actors, and being more or less inclusive, democratic and participative. In many ways, institutions and organizations are failing to meet adequately the challenges of a diverse workforce. We invite papers from across the social sciences and humanities disciplines that examine a better understanding of theory, practices and policies developed by a range of actors at different levels, and to provide an assessment of their impact on EDI in the workplace. It also seeks to understand how existing institutions facilitate or hinder change and how and why organizations fade away or prevail over time and in different contexts. A particular focus is on both the development of new practices, norms, mechanisms, capabilities and resources that foster EDI values and initiatives. We welcome papers that will examine the new challenges facing the promotion of all forms of diversity, as well as the experimentation with policies and practices that seek to address these objectives. We seek contributions that create spaces for the emergence of new ideas that help building a critical analysis on diversity, equality and inclusion. Papers may adopt a macro, meso or micro level of analysis and can be based on case studies, comparative, empirical and evaluative analysis examining norms, practices, policies and mechanisms promoting better EDI for vulnerable groups of workers. Contributions must be original research that is not under consideration at another journal. This call for papers is open and competitive, and all submitted papers will be subjected to anonymous review by referees with expertise in the field. *Review process for the selection and rejection of papers* Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process and will be evaluated by the special issue editors. *The deadline for submissions is **January 31, 2019* Please submit enquiries to [log in to unmask] Submissions should be made through ScholarOne at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/edi.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. An international Journal

 

Progresses, Setbacks and New Challenges in EDI

Guest Editors:

Tania Saba, School of Industrial Relations, Université de Montréal, Canada. [log in to unmask]

Joana Vassilopoulou, Brunel Business School, Brunel University London, UK [log in to unmask]

Despite all the research efforts as well as organizational and political initiatives aimed at promoting diversity, inequalities persist. Furthermore, while workplaces claim to pay more attention to diversity, new forms of discrimination and barriers, more complex and more subtle, make it more difficult to detect biases and prejudices. We invite conceptual and empirical interventions that explore the advances, setbacks, drifts and transformations facing diversity, equality and inclusion.

Policy makers, organisations, unions and civil society institutions are seeking to maintain or change existing norms and institutionalized practices aimed at enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Processes of institutional and organizational change are often uneven and contested, yielding both positive and negative outcomes: be it enhancing or reducing inequalities, worsening or improving working conditions, increasing or reducing the asymmetries of power between actors, and being more or less inclusive, democratic and participative. In many ways, institutions and organizations are failing to meet adequately the challenges of a diverse workforce.

We invite papers from across the social sciences and humanities disciplines that examine a better understanding of theory, practices and policies developed by a range of actors at different levels, and to provide an assessment of their impact on EDI in the workplace. It also seeks to understand how existing institutions facilitate or hinder change and how and why organizations fade away or prevail over time and in different contexts. A particular focus is on both the development of new practices, norms, mechanisms, capabilities and resources that foster EDI values and initiatives.

We welcome papers that will examine the new challenges facing the promotion of all forms of diversity, as well as the experimentation with policies and practices that seek to address these objectives. We seek contributions that create spaces for the emergence of new ideas that help building a critical analysis on diversity, equality and inclusion. Papers may adopt a macro, meso or micro level of analysis and can be based on case studies, comparative, empirical and evaluative analysis examining norms, practices, policies and mechanisms promoting better EDI for vulnerable groups of workers.

Contributions must be original research that is not under consideration at another journal.  This call for papers is open and competitive, and all submitted papers will be subjected to anonymous review by referees with expertise in the field.

Review process for the selection and rejection of papers

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process and will be evaluated by the special issue editors.

The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2019

Furthermore, the majority of outward foreign direct investment from EMs is created through M&As that help firms to achieve strategic objectives such as growth and acquisitions of technology and resources. However, the number of studies that focus on M&As in and out of EMs is much smaller than those studies that analyze M&As in and out of developed economies, which constitute a major research gap and opportunity for future studies. For example, a recent review of the literature on the critical success factors of M&As (Goems, Angwin, Weber and Tarba, 2013), concluded that there is a scarcity of theoretical and empirical work examining cross-border M&As by EM firms. Moreover, based on a meta-analysis of culture’s consequences for acquisition performance, Rottig (2017: 28) notes that “the majority of culture-related acquisition performance research is based on samples of acquirers and targets in developed countries with a recent emergence of studies examining acquisitions of Western-based firms in emerging markets. Interestingly, however, we could not identify a single empirical study that examined the effects of cultural differences on acquisition performance based on a sample of acquisitions of emerging market targets by emerging market acquirers. Against the background of the recent proliferation of acquisitions across emerging markets – with emerging market acquirers accounting for 53 percent of global cross-border acquisitions and 72 percent of targets being located in emerging markets (UNCTAD, 2014) – future research is likely to make a contribution by theoretically examining the unique institutional environments of emerging markets, developing location-specific conceptual models for the culture-based acquisition performance determinants in these markets, and empirically analyzing such models based on samples of acquirers and target firms that are indigenous to these markets.” These reviews point out the need for more research on M&As within EMs as well as M&As originating from EM firms. Most of the literature on M&As in and out of EMs is based on samples from only one single country such as China or India, and the results are mixed. It is questionable whether conclusions from one EM can be generalized to other EM firms. Furthermore, there is a lack of research testing the applicability of findings and theories from the literature on cross-border M&A in developed countries in the context of M&A in and out of EM. For example, more research is needed on the unique institutional (external and internal) factors in EMs that impact the strategies, implementation and performance of M&A in EMs (e.g., see Rottig, 2016) This special issue aims to foster research streams on antecedents (factors affecting performance) and outcomes (performance) of cross-border mergers and acquisitions in and out of emerging markets. This complex, widespread and growing phenomenon of M&A will require the incorporation of multidisciplinary, multi-level and cross-cultural models and analyses (Weber, 2012; Weber, Tarba and Oberg, 2014). We invite papers that focus on theories and findings that explain pre- and post-M&A processes in EMs. We encourage both conceptual and empirical contributions that may address, but are not limited to, the following topics: Multidisciplinary approach and interrelationships among M&A stages in and out EMs: · What insights can perspectives from strategy, organizational behavior, international management, psychology, sociology, anthropology and other disciplines provide to our understanding of M&As performance in and out EMs? · Given that some studies show that experience does not necessarily lead to better performance, how can Learning theory, Knowledge-based-view and Resource-based-view explain the contribution of various stages on M&A performance in EMs? · Do strategic goals, strategic choices and screening processes during the pre-merger stage lead to different psychological experiences and outcomes that require different HR practices in M&As? · What is the link between HR practices, synergy expectations and synergy exploitation at M&As in EMs?

The acquisitions of companies located in emerging markets as well as M&A deals that have originated from emerging market firms in recent years account for a large share of foreign direct investment (Rottig, 2017). Furthermore, the majority of outward foreign direct investment from EMs is created through M&As that help firms to achieve strategic objectives such as growth and acquisitions of technology and resources. However, the number of studies that focus on M&As in and out of EMs is much smaller than those studies that analyze M&As in and out of developed economies, which constitute a major research gap and opportunity for future studies. For example, a recent review of the literature on the critical success factors of M&As (Goems, Angwin, Weber and Tarba, 2013), concluded that there is a scarcity of theoretical and empirical work examining cross-border M&As by EM firms.  Moreover, based on a meta-analysis of culture’s consequences for acquisition performance, Rottig (2017: 28) notes that “the majority of culture-related acquisition performance research is based on samples of acquirers and targets in developed countries with a recent emergence of studies examining acquisitions of Western-based firms in emerging markets. Interestingly, however, we could not identify a single empirical study that examined the effects of cultural differences on acquisition performance based on a sample of acquisitions of emerging market targets by emerging market acquirers. Against the background of the recent proliferation of acquisitions across emerging markets – with emerging market acquirers accounting for 53 percent of global cross-border acquisitions and 72 percent of targets being located in emerging markets (UNCTAD, 2014) – future research is likely to make a contribution by theoretically examining the unique institutional environments of emerging markets, developing location-specific conceptual models for the culture-based acquisition performance determinants in these markets, and empirically analyzing such models based on samples of acquirers and target firms that are indigenous to these markets.” These reviews point out the need for more research on M&As within EMs as well as M&As originating from EM firms.

 

Most of the literature on M&As in and out of EMs is based on samples from only one single country such as China or India, and the results are mixed. It is questionable whether conclusions from one EM can be generalized to other EM firms. Furthermore, there is a lack of research testing the applicability of findings and theories from the literature on cross-border M&A in developed countries in the context of M&A in and out of EM. For example, more research is needed on the unique institutional (external and internal) factors in EMs that impact the strategies, implementation and performance of M&A in EMs (e.g., see Rottig, 2016)

This special issue aims to foster research streams on antecedents (factors affecting performance) and outcomes (performance) of cross-border mergers and acquisitions in and out of emerging markets. This complex, widespread and growing phenomenon of M&A will require the incorporation of multidisciplinary, multi-level and cross-cultural models and analyses (Weber, 2012; Weber, Tarba and Oberg, 2014).

We invite papers that focus on theories and findings that explain pre- and post-M&A processes in EMs. We encourage both conceptual and empirical contributions that may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:

 

Multidisciplinary approach and interrelationships among M&A stages in and out EMs:

·         What insights can perspectives from strategy, organizational behavior, international management, psychology, sociology, anthropology and other disciplines provide to our understanding of M&As performance in and out EMs?

·         Given that some studies show that experience does not necessarily lead to better performance, how can    Learning theory, Knowledge-based-view and Resource-based-view explain the contribution of various stages on M&A performance in EMs?

·         Do strategic goals, strategic choices and screening processes during the pre-merger stage lead to different psychological experiences and outcomes that require different HR practices in M&As?

·         What is the link between HR practices, synergy expectations and synergy exploitation at M&As in EMs?

 

Success Factors at M&A Stages in and out of EMs

·         What are the success factors during the planning, due-diligence, and screening stages of M&A in EMs?

·         How the unique institutional contexts of emerging markets affect M&A performance?

·         What are the roles of leadership and trust during different stages of M&A in EMs?

·         What are the best practices for synergy realization in M&As in and out EMs?

·         Under what circumstances (e.g., institutional contexts, industries, firm size) are communication, training, staffing, recruiting, rewarding and other practices during the pre and post-merger period the most effective (e.g., Weber and Tarba, 2010; Weber and Tarba, 2012; Weber, Shenkar and Raveh, 2006; )?

Management International Review

Call for Papers for a Focused Issue

 

INTERNATIONAL NETWORKING AND SUCCESS- VS. FAILURE-BASED LEARNING OF SMES

 

Guest Editors

Timothy M. Devinney, University of Leeds (UK)

Jeoung Yul Lee, Chongqing Technology & Business U./Hongik U./U. of Leeds (China/South Korea/UK)

Alfredo Jimenez, KEDGE Business School (France)

 

In recent decades small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have undertaken a huge volume of cross-border foreign direct investment (FDI). These entrepreneurial organizations created innovative products and services, entering various countries based on entrepreneurial capabilities linked to their home countries. In adapting for these new territories, SMEs were required to construct local networks within their host countries, and, in turn, link into global networks based on their technological, managerial, and marketing capabilities.

However, despite this golden era of SMEs internationalization, many SMEs both from developed and developing regions fail in their attempts to conquer overseas markets. One major reason explaining SMEs failure is the lack of significant advantages, particularly in terms of technological capabilities or local and global networking abilities. Similarly, another critical determinant is SMEs success- versus failure-based learning from both self and peer successes or failures. This learning pattern echoes Madsen and Desai (2010), who showed the importance of self and peer success or failure effects on organizational learning, specifically its emphasis of failing to learn versus succeeding to learn. Both self and vicarious success- versus failure-based learning by SMEs can interact with international networking within the global realm.

The goal of this Focused Issue is to motivate researchers into exploring knowledge regarding the creation and capture of entrepreneurial opportunities across borders via international networking, specifically interplaying with organizational learning based on self and vicarious success- versus failure-based learning. Examples of appropriate topics and research questions for this focused issues submissions include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • How can perspectives from the entrepreneurship, international business, and organizational theory unify and improve homogeneous versus heterogeneous constructs and operational definitions for the international networking and success- versus failure-learning of SMEs?
  • What mechanisms are included in the creation and capture of international networking opportunities across national borders by SMEs? 
  • How do the pursuit of international opportunities via international networking and its interplay with success- versus failure-based learning vary across SME types? 
  • How does self and vicarious learning by internationalized SMEs affect future successes and failures? How does this self and vicarious learning interplay with international networking by large MNEs versus SMEs?

     

    We particularly welcome both conceptual and empirical research on the above themes regarding internationalized SMEs disciplines that have been under-represented to date. All authors who are invited to revise and resubmit their manuscripts are expected to present their papers at the Focused Issue Workshop hosted at Chongqing Technology & Business University, which will provide individual accommodations for two nights to one author from every paper invited to revise and resubmit after the first round, as well as cover all local workshop expenses (meals, etc.).

Dear Colleagues,
It is with great pride to announce that our paper entitled "Cultural Intelligence: A Dynamic and Interactional Framework”  saw the light and published yesterday at ISMO SI (INNOVATIVE TRENDS IN CULTURAL STUDIES). In this paper, we introduce an alternative to national culture in management studies in general and to Cultural Intelligence (CQ) in specific by connecting CQ to Douglasian Cultural Framework (DCF). Moreover, the paper, responds to scholars calls (e.g. Murdock, 1971) for linking aspects from more than one knowledge domain to understand human behavior. We anticipate that our paper will set a new milestone in CQ, DCF and management domain and its contribution will be remarked by many in the filed.

The need for effective multigenerational management and leadership in organizations is a natural outcome of the 21st century due largely to the Millennial generation which has begun making its mark on the global workforce. This rapidly growing group will soon represent the largest demographic in workplaces in many parts of the world. While much thought has been given to how business leaders and managers can obtain the most from Millennials (Generation Y) and subsequent groups such as Generation Z, the true challenge is far more complex: The workforce of the near future will be a multigenerational one, featuring members from between four and six generations in one organizational setting. This situation is made even more complex and challenging with the effects of today's globalization which have created worldwide hypercompetition in organizations often consisting of members from multiple cultures and languages. How to effectively handle such a diverse population is increasingly a key concern for all types of organizations of any size, especially those in North America and Europe.

The 'Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights' (TRIPS), signed in 1994 as a founding element of the World Trade Organization, represents the most important attempt to establish a global harmonization of Intellectual Property protection, creating international standards for the protection of patents, copyrights, trademarks and designs. As part of the World Trade Organization, it also is subject to that organization's dispute settlement system, and thus, unlike previous international agreements on IPRs, includes enforcement procedures at the intergovernmental level. Protecting IPRs of course means different things for firms, who most profit from them, and for governments, who bear the burden of creating the infrastructure for the enforcement of IPRs (and, in some areas, are among the major consumers of goods protected by IPRs). The processes of IP legislation and enforcement can thus be difficult and controversial. In designing IP polices governments need to mindful of balancing the reward for innovative activity with the incentives for diffusion of that innovation. Put differently, the interests of the producers must be arrayed against the interests of the consumer. Even within a national economy, this may be difficult as producers are much better organized to lobby policy than are consumers (Olsen 1962). In an international context this can be almost impossible to achieve without some supra-national intervention. Thus the adoption of TRIPS at the multilateral level and its implementation at national levels has been fraught with conflicts, as many political scientists (e.g. May and Sell, 2006; Ryan, 1998; Sell, 2003; Matthews 2002; Deere 2008) and economists (e.g., Archibugi and Filippetti, 2010; Maskus, 2000; Maskus and Reichman, 2005) have shown. Nearly two and a half decades after TRIPS came into effect, much has changed in the global innovation landscape. Technology trade has flourished and more technology has been transferred to emerging market subsidiaries by MNEs. China has emerged as a major power making huge strides in patenting in both domestic, European and US jurisdictions (Hu et al 2017; Li 2012). Indian public research institutes like CSIR have found patenting has helped them become more self-reliant for funds. New institutional forms of Intellectual Property which pool patents have also emerged in response to the global challenges. Examples include the Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) to tackle AIDS (WIPO 2011), the GAVI alliance to improve childhood immunization (Kremer and Grennerster, 2004) and the EcoPatent Commons, GreenXchange and Canada's Oil Sands Alliance (COSIA) to control carbon emissions (Awad, 2015). Although IB theories emphasize the role of innovation and technological change in originating and strengthening the competitive advantages of the MNE, IB scholarship has focused mostly on considering IPR regulations as a location advantage/disadvantage (e.g. Ivus, Park, Saggi, 2017), or an institutional factor (e.g., Peng, Ahlstrom, Carraher, Shi, 2017a, b; Peng, 2013) interacting with MNE strategies. This is a narrow view and one that does not address the emerging new institutional developments around intellectual property policy and the effects of these on trade, investment and multinational behavior. TRIPS also generated new political configurations between governments and business (and other social actors) and, importantly, the use of non-market strategies to influence IPR policy. Understanding these new patterns of organization and political mobilization, traditionally the domain of political economy, is exceedingly important in the context of emerging markets where implementing TRIPS implied substantial changes to national laws and policies. The most studied sector in this regard has been pharmaceuticals, as TRIPS required countries to allow drugs to be patented when many countries previously did not do so. National debates are no longer about whether drug firms should get patents, but how strong the associated rights should be, and how long these rights of exclusion should last for. Shadlen (2017) shows that national approaches to both introducing pharmaceutical patent systems and reforming these new patent systems have been driven by constellations of interests in society (rather than, for example, the ideology of incumbent presidents or the nature of political institutions). These issues, namely how the focal points of debate have changed and the search for drivers of cross-national and within-country variation, are common to a range of global challenges, beyond pharmaceuticals, such as clean technologies and global warming. As regional trading blocs run into political problems it may be worth reassessing the TRIPS experience once again to highlight what has worked well and what has not. The proposed special issue aims at stimulating a wider discussion on the international patenting landscape, its use by emerging markets and the influence on trade and MNE strategies. This is a two-way interaction where firm behaviors can help/influence the design of better IP policies, but whose successful implementation in turn requires cooperation from firms (Lundan, 2018). This special issue is aimed at an inter-disciplinary audience in a genuine effort to bring together research that wants to understand the experience of TRIPS and what it offers in terms of IPR policy as the world heads towards de-globalisation. Related contributions have gradually begun to appear in the IB literature (Journal of World Business, Transnational Corporations and Journal of International Business Policy). Relevant research has also appeared in other disciplines such as Journal of Law and Economics, Journal of Development Studies and Journal of Development Economics. They provide some stepping stones and research agendas for this special issue. The Journal of International Business Policy (JIBP) aims to be a leader in publishing high quality research analyzing emerging public policy trends and their impact on international firms. Through this Special Issue call, JIBP aims specifically to champion research analyzing the contribution of IP harmonization to processes of technology transfer, policy making, capability building and challenges to governance. This special issue is intended to be a first - but certainly not last - focal point triggering IB scholarly attention to this area. For that reason, this special issue will also be accompanied by a Paper Development Workshop in December 2019. The following is an indicative (but not exhaustive) list of topics to guide potential authors: 1. The effect of IPR policies on technology-related trade and investment * Home- and host-country IPR policy effects on technology trade and choice of partners, before and after TRIPS * How the spread of global value chains (GVCs) and countries' and firms' integration into GVCs affects national IP strategy * How TRIPS has affected the internationalization and "off-shoring" of research and development 2. Domestic and foreign firms and the political economy of IPR policies * MNE influence on regional and/or global IP harmonization. * MNE lobbying strategies to change IPR policies in host and home countries. * The internationalization of trademarks * Case studies of national politics around joining the Patent Cooperation Treaty 3. IPR policies: Trends and effects at the country level * Home- and host-country IPR regulatory effects on domestic technological capability and economic development * Home- and host-country IPR policy effects on inward and outward FDI * IPR and patenting patterns in home- and host-countries * The emergence of competition and antitrust institutions as important actors in countries and sectors where patenting is new * Understanding the changing demands for stronger IP rules by local actors in industries where imitation and reverse-engineering are difficult 4. IP implementation and its effect on economic outcomes * Understanding the differences between de jure and de facto levels of IP protection and the effect of divergence on technology investment and trade * How TRIPS has affected the role of technology transfer offices in public (and private) universities and research institutions * IP infringement and its effect on MNE investment and domestic inventiveness * Effectiveness of new IPR regimes (patent pooling) for solving the technology needs of global challenges * New forms of property right protection (in the digital age); open models for patents We welcome extended proposals from research in all relevant scientific fields (researchers in IB, economics, political science, sociology, law, geography, innovation, development studies, public policy, and international relations) and especially welcome proposals bridging various scientific disciplines. A paper can be aimed at theory development, but can also be empirical (aimed at collecting and interpreting larger data samples or specific case studies). To give us a wider choice of papers, our call is for extended proposals which should be submitted to the Editors by 15 December 2018. Selected proposals will be expected to submit full papers by 15 July 2019. Special Issue Proposals Proposals should be written in English and not exceed a total of seven (7) pages and 4000 words - five (5) pages for the body which can include charts, graphs, diagrams, and up to two (2) pages of references. The 4000-word count includes all text in the charts, graphs, diagrams, and references. Only electronic submissions of proposal(s) will be accepted, submitted via the Manuscript Central portal for JIBP: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jibp. A maximum of two (2) proposals, either as an author or a co-author, may be submitted. We seek original, unpublished work to move the scholarly conversation on TRIPS forward. Proposals may be rooted in or derived from prior work, but the submitted proposal must reflect significant development. Any proposal submitted that is judged to be identical or substantially similar to work already published, presented or under review for another conference or publication, will not be considered for invitation to develop a full manuscript. Proposals are easiest to handle if submitted in PDF format. MS Word (or equivalent) will also be accepted. The title should be listed in the header of each page. Please use single spacing and 10-point font or larger. All proposals received by the deadline date (December 15, 2018) are deemed as original and final. Proposals are reviewed by the special issue editors, so they are not anonymous. Proposals should include name and institutional affiliation of all authors. Authors who submit full manuscripts can expect a standard double-blind peer review process after submission.

Special Issue Description

 

Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) have become ubiquitous in current debates about trade and globalization, and have emerged as a key issue of contention in global trade and investment negotiations. The 'Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights' (TRIPS), signed in 1994 as a founding element of the World Trade Organization, represents the most important attempt to establish a global harmonization of Intellectual Property protection, creating international standards for the protection of patents, copyrights, trademarks and designs. As part of the World Trade Organization, it also is subject to that organization’s dispute settlement system, and thus, unlike previous international agreements on IPRs, includes enforcement procedures at the intergovernmental level.

 

Protecting IPRs of course means different things for firms, who most profit from them, and for governments, who bear the burden of creating the infrastructure for the enforcement of IPRs (and, in some areas, are among the major consumers of goods protected by IPRs). The processes of IP legislation and enforcement can thus be difficult and controversial.  In designing IP polices governments need to mindful of balancing the reward for innovative activity with the incentives for diffusion of that innovation.  Put differently, the interests of the producers must be arrayed against the interests of the consumer. Even within a national economy, this may be difficult as producers are much better organized to lobby policy than are consumers (Olsen 1962).  In an international context this can be almost impossible to achieve without some supra-national intervention. Thus the adoption of TRIPS at the multilateral level and its implementation at national levels has been fraught with conflicts, as many political scientists (e.g. May and Sell, 2006; Ryan, 1998; Sell, 2003; Matthews 2002; Deere 2008) and economists (e.g., Archibugi and Filippetti, 2010; Maskus, 2000; Maskus and Reichman, 2005) have shown.

 

Nearly two and a half decades after TRIPS came into effect, much has changed in the global innovation landscape.  Technology trade has flourished and more technology has been transferred to emerging market subsidiaries by MNEs. China has emerged as a major power making huge strides in patenting in both domestic, European and US jurisdictions (Hu et al 2017; Li 2012).  Indian public research institutes like CSIR have found patenting has helped them become more self-reliant for funds.  New institutional forms of Intellectual Property which pool patents have also emerged in response to the global challenges.  Examples include the Medicines Patent Pool (MPP) to tackle AIDS (WIPO 2011), the GAVI alliance to improve childhood immunization (Kremer and Grennerster, 2004) and the EcoPatent Commons, GreenXchange and Canada’s Oil Sands Alliance (COSIA) to control carbon emissions (Awad, 2015).   

  

Although IB theories emphasize the role of innovation and technological change in originating and strengthening the competitive advantages of the MNE, IB scholarship has focused mostly on  considering IPR regulations as a location advantage/disadvantage (e.g. Ivus, Park, Saggi, 2017), or an institutional factor (e.g., Peng, Ahlstrom, Carraher, Shi, 2017a, b; Peng, 2013) interacting with MNE  strategies.  This is a narrow view and one that does not address the emerging new institutional developments around intellectual property policy and the effects of these on trade, investment and multinational behavior.

 

TRIPS also generated new political configurations between governments and business (and other social actors) and, importantly, the use of non-market strategies to influence IPR policy. Understanding these new patterns of organization and political mobilization, traditionally the domain of political economy, is exceedingly important in the context of emerging markets where implementing TRIPS implied substantial changes to national laws and policies. The most studied sector in this regard has been pharmaceuticals, as TRIPS required countries to allow drugs to be patented when many countries previously did not do so. National debates are no longer about whether drug firms should get patents, but how strong the associated rights should be, and how long these rights of exclusion should last for. Shadlen (2017) shows that national approaches to both introducing pharmaceutical patent systems and reforming these new patent systems have been driven by constellations of interests in society (rather than, for example, the ideology of incumbent presidents or the nature of political institutions). These issues, namely how the focal points of debate have changed and the search for drivers of cross-national and within-country variation, are common to a range of global challenges, beyond pharmaceuticals, such as clean technologies and global warming.

 

As regional trading blocs run into political problems it may be worth reassessing the TRIPS experience once again to highlight what has worked well and what has not. The proposed special issue aims at stimulating a wider discussion on the international patenting landscape, its use by emerging markets and the influence on trade and MNE strategies.  This is a two-way interaction where firm behaviors can help/influence the design of better IP policies, but whose successful implementation in turn requires cooperation from firms (Lundan, 2018). This special issue is aimed at an inter-disciplinary audience in a genuine effort to bring together research that wants to understand the experience of TRIPS and what it offers in terms of IPR policy as the world heads towards de-globalisation.  Related contributions have gradually begun to appear in the IB literature (Journal of World Business, Transnational Corporations and Journal of International Business Policy).  Relevant research has also appeared in other disciplines such as Journal of Law and Economics, Journal of Development Studies and Journal of Development Economics. They provide some stepping stones and research agendas for this special issue.

 

The Journal of International Business Policy (JIBP) aims to be a leader in publishing high quality research analyzing emerging public policy trends and their impact on international firms.  Through this Special Issue call, JIBP aims specifically to champion research analyzing the contribution of IP harmonization to processes of technology transfer, policy making, capability building and challenges to governance.  This special issue is intended to be a first – but certainly not last - focal point triggering IB scholarly attention to this area. For that reason, this special issue will also be accompanied by a Paper Development Workshop in December 2019.


The following is an indicative (but not exhaustive) list of topics to guide potential authors:

 

1.       The effect of IPR  policies on technology-related trade and investment

 

·         Home- and host-country IPR policy effects on technology trade and choice of partners, before and after TRIPS

·         How the spread of global value chains (GVCs) and countries’ and firms’ integration into GVCs affects national IP strategy

·         How TRIPS has affected the internationalization and “off-shoring” of research and development

 

2.            Domestic and foreign firms and the political economy of IPR policies

 

·         MNE influence on regional and/or global IP harmonization.

·         MNE lobbying strategies to change IPR policies in host and home countries.

·         The internationalization of trademarks

·         Case studies of national politics around joining the Patent Cooperation Treaty

 

3.            IPR policies: Trends and effects at the country level

 

·         Home- and host-country IPR regulatory effects on domestic technological capability and economic development

·         Home- and host-country IPR policy effects on inward and outward FDI

·         IPR and patenting patterns in home- and host-countries

·         The emergence of competition and antitrust institutions as important actors in countries and sectors where patenting is new

·         Understanding the changing demands for stronger IP rules by local actors in industries where imitation and reverse-engineering are difficult

 

4.            IP implementation and its effect on economic outcomes

·         Understanding the differences between de jure and de facto levels of IP protection and the effect of divergence on technology investment and trade

·         How TRIPS has affected the role of technology transfer offices in public (and private) universities and research institutions

·         IP infringement and its effect on MNE investment and domestic inventiveness

·         Effectiveness of new IPR regimes (patent pooling) for solving the technology needs of global challenges

·         New forms of property right protection (in the digital age); open models for patents

 

We welcome extended proposals from research in all relevant scientific fields (researchers in IB, economics, political science, sociology, law, geography, innovation, development studies, public policy, and international relations) and especially welcome proposals bridging various scientific disciplines. A paper can be aimed at theory development, but can also be empirical (aimed at collecting and interpreting larger data samples or specific case studies).  To give us a wider choice of papers, our call is for extended proposals which should be submitted to the Editors by 15 December 2018.  Selected proposals will be expected to submit full papers by 15 July 2019.


 

Special Issue Proposals

 

Proposals should be written in English and not exceed a total of seven (7) pages and 4000 words – five (5) pages for the body which can include charts, graphs, diagrams, and up to two (2) pages of references. The 4000-word count includes all text in the charts, graphs, diagrams, and references.

Only electronic submissions of proposal(s) will be accepted, submitted via the Manuscript Central portal for JIBP: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jibp. A maximum of two (2) proposals, either as an author or a co-author, may be submitted.

 

We seek original, unpublished work to move the scholarly conversation on TRIPS forward. Proposals may be rooted in or derived from prior work, but the submitted proposal must reflect significant development. Any proposal submitted that is judged to be identical or substantially similar to work already published, presented or under review for another conference or publication, will not be considered for invitation to develop a full manuscript.

 

Proposals are easiest to handle if submitted in PDF format. MS Word (or equivalent) will also be accepted. The title should be listed in the header of each page. Please use single spacing and 10-point font or larger. All proposals received by the deadline date (December 15, 2018) are deemed as original and final.

 

Proposals are reviewed by the special issue editors, so they are not anonymous. Proposals should include name and institutional affiliation of all authors. Authors who submit full manuscripts can expect a standard double-blind peer review process after submission.

Among them are severe shocks caused by natural disasters and by domestic and international financial crises, but also long-term fundamental transformations like demographic change, globalization and digitalization as well as economic reforms addressing the labor market, corporate governance and employment practices. In this special issue, we want to take stock of how the changes in the economic, regulatory, technological and international environment affected the Japanese employment system (system level), and the recruitment, management and development of human resources (management level) since the year 2000. Papers may either address the system or management level. We aim at an overall balance between system and management level analyses.
