IM/STR/OMT Showcase Symposium (Synchronous Presenter Symposium)-Reviving the Liability of Foreignness: Why the Liability of Foreignness Research Matters in the Semi-globalized Era (#11782)Date and Time: Aug-10-2020 (Monday), 10:30AM-12:00PM in EDT
You are cordially invited to an IM division showcase presenter symposium co-sponsored by STR and OMT divisions on the topic of liability of foreignness in the semi-globalized era.
The liability of foreignness that foreign multinationals pay higher costs of doing business abroad than domestic firms has been one of the most important research topics in international business that has drawn a great deal of scholarly attention. However, it is also true that, more recently, the liability of foreignness has been theoretically and empirically challenged for various reasons. Thus, in this symposium, we aim to address these challenges while further validating the existence of the liability of foreignness. Furthermore, we also attempt to suggest an interesting future research agenda about the liability of foreignness. In particular, the four papers included in the symposium by scholars in the field would provide an interesting intellectual and theory-driven conversation on the topic-and thus help to suggest a meaningful future research direction for studying the liability of foreignness.
Thank you very much for your interest in advance and we look forward to seeing many of you at the symposium.
