Managerial Strategies for Navigating Emerging Economic Nationalism
A book edited by Harish C. Chandan (Argosy University)

 

Introduction

In the hyper-connected, globalized world economy of today, the goal of the economic nationalism for a nation is to promote its economic growth and prosperity of its citizens. It represents a set of country-specific economic practices to create, strengthen and protect a nation’s economy in the context of international markets. Economic nationalism encourages economic policies aimed at promoting domestic control of consumption, labor and capital formation. It questions the benefits of unrestricted global free trade. The economic nationalism often calls for trade protectionism, limiting imports, increasing exports, currency manipulation and restricting immigration (Pryke, 2012). There is a relationship between economic nationalism and foreign direct investment (FDI) in emerging markets. The public opinion and prevailing preferences regarding FDI affect the location decisions of multinational companies(Jacobsen and Jacobsen, 2011).

The Coevolution of SMEs and Family Firms in Russia, Ex-Soviet Republics, and Eastern European Economies: Knowledge Creation, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Economic Growth

 

Rotterdam, May 17–19, 2017

 

Paper Development Workshop & Pre-Conference Activities May 17th

Panel & Poster Sessions May 18-19th

 

We are excited to announce the third conference of the Management Organization Review (MOR) Second Research Frontiers Conference Series. Whereas the first two conferences focused on China and India, the Rotterdam conference shifts focus to Russia, Ex-Soviet Republics, and Eastern Europe. This interdisciplinary Research Frontiers Conference serves as a key MOR exploration dialectic for advancing and opening new research directions of phenomena in the social sciences underlying management and organizations, globalization, and economic growth through boundary-crossing dialog and discourse with a focus on all transforming economies.

The core theme of the conference explores the coevolution of SMEs and family firms in Russia, Ex-Soviet Republics, and Eastern European economies. Most scholars in strategy, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship, and international business study this question by considering environmental change as an exogenous variable. Moreover, they often employ a single theme for describing how and why organizations tend to become isomorphic with their (regional, national, and global) environments through processes of either adaptation or selection. Less frequently examined are questions of how organizations systematically influence their (regional, national, and global) environments and how global and national environments (comprised of other firms and new entrants) influence those organizations in turn. In this MOR Research Frontiers Conference we will discuss the complex, multi-level causal interactions in the context of Russia, Ex-Soviet Republics, and Eastern European countries and the firms residing in them, in particular how firms’ strategies, management practices, and their eco-systems affect and are affected by the factors shaping innovation, entrepreneurship and national competitiveness.

Gurkov (Higher School of Economics), and Oli Mihalache (VU University Amsterdam, Associate Editor European Management Review).

The workshop is organized in the opening of Management and Organization Review’sSecond Research Frontiers Conference III on “The Coevolution of SMEs and Family Firms in Russia, Ex-Soviet Republics, and Eastern European Economies: Knowledge Creation, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Economic Growth.” The core theme of the conference explores the coevolution of SMEs and family firms in Russia, Ex-Soviet Republics, and Eastern European economies.

Management scholars doing research set in the geographic area but not focusing on SMEs and Family business are very welcomed to apply to attend.

The aim of this Special Issue (SI) is to connect the two main topics towards which Kybernetes is currently steering its focus, Systems Thinking and Cybernetics, exploring their potential impacts in addressing and analysing complex issues in Social, Environmental and Economic domains, 

The expected contributions to this Special Issue are related, but not limited, to the BSLab-SYDIC Workshop 2017 (http://bslab-symposium.net/BSLab-Sydic-2017/BSLAB-SYDIC-WS-Rome-2017.htm) whose attempt was to aggregate various issues from the wide topic of Smart Model-based Governance and its perspective of applications to the present and the future complex organisations.
