The mission of this Special Interest Group (SIG) is to facilitate and promote the development and exchange of knowledge within all areas of International Management within and beyond the academic community. In line with the European Academy of Management’s (EURAM) mission this SIG aims to be an open, international and multicultural European forum for networking and research (theoretical, empirical and methodological ) related to International Management with a particular (but not exclusive) regional focus on Europe regarding (a) the SIG community and (b) the geographical scope of empirical or conceptual research.
GT 07_00 International Management General Track
International management is an ubiquitous phenomenon in today’s business world. The general track of our SIG is interested in research addressing the challenges organisations face in an increasingly internationalised environment. We invite research on ALL subfields of International Management and International Business and we encourage multi-disciplinary studies fostering cross-pollination with other fields. We are open to conceptual work and empirical studies advancing existing research and discourse as well as fresh perspectives on international management. For the 2018 conference, responding to the conference theme, we explicitly invite research associated with knowledge creation, diffusion and the transferability of practices across national contexts.

ST 07_01 Expatriate Management
The topic of Expatriate Management (EM) usually involves physical international mobility for work purposes by skilled workers or professionals. Although the core of this topic includes internationally assigned business expatriates, it also includes alternative forms of global work where movement of people across national borders is becoming increasingly common. Therefore, EM research also examines, for example, self-initiated expatriates, expatriate academics, global talent management, safety issues, global families and expatriate entrepreneurs. Emerald Group Publishing and the Journal of Global Mobility (JGM): The Home of Expatriate Management Research, have instituted an annual JGM Best Paper Award for EM papers at EURAM Conferences.
