Visit here for more details.  We are expecting to select papers for special sections/special issues in Journal of World Business, Journal of International Business Policy, and Multinational Business Review. 


We have a tradition at the Reading conferences of debates rather than speeches (in addition to paper presentations). These are structured open-ended debates with an explicit focus on conceptual and theoretical developments. Debate sessions are intended to maximise participation from the floor.  Our classic debates will feature famous (and soon-to-be-famous) scholars such as Geoffrey Jones, Samuele Murtinu, Ajai Gaur, Rita Fontinha, Soni Jha, Irina Surdu, Liena Kano, Alain Verbeke, Dana Minbaeva, Chris Brewster, Olga Petricevic, Samia Hoque, Khadija van der Straaten, Miguel Dindial, Steve Altman,  to mention just a few!
