  • The academic activist in an age of ambivalence: reflections on a decade of
           CPoIB
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (George Cairns
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the origins of CPoIB and on events in the IB sphere over the decade since it was conceived. Design/methodology/approach – The approach of the paper is one of personal critical reflection on events and their implications for the full range of involved and affected parties, informed by Aristotelian philosophy. Findings – The author posits the need for a new generation of “academic activists” in support of a humanistic management manifesto. Originality/value – The paper reinforces the philosophy of CPoIB and the need for its continuing growth and development.

  • What's happening to international business': University structural
           changes and identification with a discipline
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Snejina Michailova; Janne Tienari
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – This paper aims to outline different views on international business (IB) as an academic discipline and looks into how IB scholars can cope with challenges to their disciplinary identity when stand-alone IB departments are merged with other departments such as management, marketing or strategy in business schools and universities. Design/methodology/approach – The article offers a critical reflection on the development and future of IB as a discipline. The two authors are an IB and a Management scholar, both of whom were engaged in recent departmental mergers at their respective business schools. While the authors do not analyze these particular mergers, their experiences are inevitably interwoven in the views they express. Findings – Mergers of stand-alone IB departments with other departments bring to light the nature of the IB discipline as a contested terrain. The article discusses how these structural changes challenge the disciplinary identity of IB scholars. It contributes, first, to discussions on the development of IB as a discipline and, second, to understanding identities and identification during major organizational change events in academia. Research limitations/implications – The authors suggest that the threat of marginalization of IB in the context of business schools and universities necessitates a move beyond the “big questions” debate to a critical self-examination and reflection on IB as a discipline and as a global scholarly community. Originality/value – The article offers a critical view on current processes and challenges related to IB as a discipline and an academic community.

  • Transnational corporations in twenty-first century capitalism: An
           interview with Grazia Ietto-Gillies
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Jeb Sprague; Grazia Ietto-Gillies
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to discuss economic and social issues of contemporary capitalism through the views and works of Grazia Ietto-Gillies who has a long experience of research in these fields. The issues relate to strategies of TNCs, to globalization and transnationalization, to internationalization indices, to linkages between innovation and internationalization, to uneven development, and, finally, to issues related to the economics profession and the dissemination of research in the twenty-first century. Design/methodology/approach – In-depth interview; use of relevant literature to support statements by interviewer and interviewee; qualitative analysis of issues discussed. Findings – The article links together under the same theoretical umbrella the following issues: a theory of TNCs based on strategic approach towards labour, governments and suppliers; the development of an internationalization index based on the geography of TNCs' networks; and the possible impact of internationalization on innovation. Uneven development is linked to current problems in Europe. The need and opportunity to reconsider the economics profession and the peer review system in the digitalization era is presented. Research limitations/implications – The article is based on the views of the interviewer and the interviewee. Their views are backed by their own previous research as well as by research by other scholars cited in the article. Practical implications – The interview draws policy implication in relation to TNCs and other actors who interact with them such as labour and governments. There are also policy implications in the economic and social spheres regarding the implications of TNCs' strategies and the aftermath of the 2007/2008 crisis. Originality/value – At the methodological level the article highlights the advantages of in-depth interviews. Specifically, it allows the interviewee to give an overall perspective on her research and to show how the various strands are connected and how they developed through the decades of her research. It allows both interviewer and interviewee to link the issues to a variety of literatures in the economics, sociology and politics fields.

  • Transnational corporations and global capitalism: reflections on the last
           40 years
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Hugo Radice
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the author's research and teaching on transnational corporations and global capitalism over the last 40 years. Design/methodology/approach – A chronological account of the changing nature of TNCs and their impacts, and the evolution of critical studies within the field. Findings – Within the literature on TNCs, critical scholarship has played an important role in developing alternative perspectives. Research limitations/implications – The paper reports the author's personal reflections on his field of study, which are intentionally subjective. Practical implications – Appreciation of the scope and effectiveness of critical scholarship in international business. Originality/value – The paper's value lies in offering a broad-brush picture of the evolution of TNCs and their critical study over four decades.

  • Challenging the orthodox: a decade of critical perspectives on
           international business
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Joanne Roberts; Christoph Dörrenbächer
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – This article reflects on the development and impact of critical perspectives on international business (CPoIB) during its first decade of existence. The influence that the journal has had through its efforts to challenge orthodox understandings of international business (IB) is considered. The evolution of CPoIB is set against the changing global environment. The contributions to this 10th anniversary issue are outlined. Design/methodology/approach – The journal's contents are reviewed and their impact assessed through an analysis of download and citation data. The position of the journal in various journal quality rankings is also examined. The contents of mainstream IB journals are compared to those of CPoIB. Findings – During its short life, CPoIB has had an important impact on the field of IB both directly through the consideration of issues from a critical perspective in the pages of the journal and through its influence on the field of IB and critical management studies. Research limitations/implications – The conclusions of the research are based on nine years of citation and download data as well as journal quality lists. Practical implications – The findings of this paper provide valuable information for authors seeking a quality and impactful outlet for their research in the field of critical perspectives on IB and related disciplines. Academic and political activists in the field of IB will find theoretical backgrounds supporting their political campaigns. Originality/value – This is the only paper to undertake an assessment of the first decade of CPoIB's development, content, and impact.

  • Fighting Latin American marginality in “international”
           business
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Rafael Alcadipani; Alex Faria
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – Latin America has been neglected in management and international business (IB) knowledge for a long time. Such a picture reflects the enduring power of the dark side of the geopolitics of knowledge that “international” sub-fields in management knowledge have to tackle as a key condition of possibility for the co-creation of a truly “international” field of “international business”. In this position paper, the authors aim to analyze the extent to which CPoIB has been a key instrument to tackle Anglo-Saxon hegemony in IB knowledge over the last ten years. Design/methodology/approach – The authors follow a decolonizing perspective to analyse the impact of CPoIB for Latin America international business knowledge production. Findings – The paper argues that CPoIB has given voice to authors who are from Latin America and, most important, work in the region. By doing that, CPoIB has triggered the mobilization of mechanisms of recognition and redistribution that are necessary to offset the neo-imperial side of “international business” and management knowledge. The journal has also helped to foster the co-creation of “pluriversal international business”. Originality/value – The paper uses a decolonial perspective from Latin America in order to open new questions and challenges to the field of IB.

  • A critical perspective on corporate social responsibility: Towards a
           global governance framework
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Subhabrata Bobby Banerjee
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to argue that there are structural and functional limits to corporate social responsibility (CSR) that determine the boundary conditions of corporate social initiatives. The current preoccupation with win-win situations in CSR may not serve societal interests. For CSR to produce social outcomes that are not necessarily constrained by corporate rationality there needs to be a change in the normative framework of public decision making at the institutional level. The author develops a global governance framework for CSR that provides more democratic forms of decision making in the political economy that will enable corporate social responsibility to overcome the constraints imposed by corporate rationality. Design/methodology/approach – This is a conceptual paper and critique. Findings – The author develops a global governance framework for CSR that provides more democratic forms of decision making in the political economy that will enable corporate social responsibility to overcome the constraints imposed by corporate rationality. Originality/value – The paper contributes to theoretical development of CSR.

  • Pushing the frontiers of critical international business studies: The
           multinational as a neo-imperial space
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Mehdi Boussebaa; Glenn Morgan
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – This paper aims to discuss the context- and power-sensitive approach to the study of multinationals that has emerged in the last decade, argues for the need to supplement it by a clearer focus on the wider geopolitical context in which multinationals operate and outlines the implications for the development of IB research in this area. Design/methodology/approach – The paper provides a summary overview of context- and power-sensitive studies of multinationals before proposing a research agenda for the next decade. In particular, it argues for the need to combine the institutionalist angle taken by context/power analyses with post-colonial theory as a means of bringing geopolitics into the study of multinationals, a task that CPoIB is well positioned to accomplish. Findings – The paper identifies a lack of “criticality” in context/power research and, in particular, a lack of attention to the neo-imperial character of multinationals with specific regards to their management and organisation. Research limitations/implications – The implications of this paper are that the nature of contemporary multinationals is further illuminated, especially their role in (re-)producing (neo-)imperial relations in a supposedly post-colonial world. Further, the paper suggests an agenda for future research on the relationship between imperialism and multinationals. Originality/value – The value of the paper is in drawing together more closely the study of multinationals as organizational structures and political systems with the history of imperialism and contemporary post-colonial theorising.

  • Who is to blame': A re-examination of fast fashion after the 2013
           factory disaster in Bangladesh
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Ian M. Taplin
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – This paper seeks to examine the various actors responsible for the recent tragedy at a clothing factory in Bangladesh. Rather than focusing on the actual factory owner, it evaluates the broader structural and institutional factors, plus a particular Western retailer strategy of fast fashion, that together explain the practical inevitability of such tragedies. Design/methodology/approach – As a case study of a particular incident, it presents data from newspaper accounts and descriptive statistics to evaluate the broader context of an industrial accident. Findings – By examining the full context of the incident, it becomes apparent that there were systemic issues that effectively encouraged many parties to engage in workplace policies that almost inevitably can lead to accidents or at least labor abuses. Finally, blame is apportioned to Western consumers whose insatiable appetite for “fashionable” goods merely feeds a retail system that was set up to resolve earlier supply chain problems and ended up taking advantage of changing international trade regimes. Originality/value – The paper takes a much broader examination and analysis of institutional factors that shape work conditions than studies that focus merely on labor-management issues.
