  • How might we study international business to account for marginalized
           subjects? Turning to practice and situating knowledges
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 3, July 2016.
      Purpose The aim of this article is to encourage critical scholars of international business to engage with scholarship that turns to practice and situates knowledges. We contend that such undertakings has the potential to constructively politicize research in the field of international business. Design/methodology/approach We discuss the need for future research in the field to be studied more critically so as to be able to focus attention on those subjects detrimentally impacted by the operation of international business. We further identify possibilities for doing so. Findings We argue that turning to practice and situating knowledges represents a move towards the emancipation of subjects marginalized—and, all too often, silenced—in the ordinary functioning of international business. Originality/value Moving against the grain of positivist orientated approaches to research in the field, whilst simultaneously building on the critical traditions to the study of international business, we consider how future scholarship might account for marginalized subjects.

  • Capturing Postcoloniality in Action: RAND, Rationality, and Subaltern
           Encounters during the `Vietnam War’
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 3, July 2016.
      Purpose Drawing on a series of RAND interviews with Vietnamese prisoners during the Vietnam War, the paper analyses the role of colonizer-colonized in the production of postcolonial representations (postcoloniality) and the role of the Western corporation in the processes of postcoloniality. Design/methodology/approach Selected RAND interviews are analysed using a postcolonial lens and explored through the method of critical hermeneutics. Findings The analysis supports the contention that Western othering of Third World people is neither completely successful nor one-sided. It is argued that while the Western corporation is an important site for understanding hybridity and postcoloniality analysis needs to go beyond focus on the symbolic and the textual to take account of the material conditions in which interactions between colonizer-colonized occur. Finally, there is support for further study of the socio-political character of methods of research in the study of international business. Research limitations/implications The case suggests further study of colonizer-colonized interactions outside of the context of an on-going war, which may have heightened some forms of resistance and voice. Originality/value The paper provides rare glimpses into interactions between colonizing and colonized people, and also the under-research study of the role of the Western corporation in the production of postcoloniality.

  • The Structural Violence of Globalization
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 3, July 2016.
      Purpose To expose the violence intrinsic to globalization and to suggest a conceptual and practical domain focused on arresting and preventing the structural violence of globalization. Design/methodology/approach The article integrates theory, scholarly literature, and the author’s fieldwork analyzed through solidarity and liberationist methodologies. Findings The article shows that: (1) severe, violent and irreparable destruction of formerly thriving and sustainable cultures and communities around the globe is an inherent component of globalization, (2) current notions of “development” and “poverty” provide ideological cover for such destruction, (3) a wide range of mainstream institutions and organizations (including governments, trade and financial institutions, and national and multinational corporations) benefit from the destruction and collude in these dynamics, while a passive majority participates through its silence and consumptive lifestyle, and (4) to arrest these dynamics requires awareness of the structural violence of development and globalization, and that those of us living in currently unsustainable societies commit both to re-localize our effects to our own communities and to change the operating rules of the global system. Practical implications This article offers analysis, perspectives and practical considerations towards transformations essential to ending the structural violence of globalization, while inviting broad-based solidarity for further advancements. Originality/value Bridging global and local realities, the article exposes systematic large-scale structural violence endemic to: Globalization, “development,” mainstream ideas about poverty and practices of “poverty reduction.” The article identifies some fundamental requirements for arresting the structural violence of the global system.

  • The Funeralesque as the Experience of Workers at the Margins of
           International Business: Seven Indian Narratives
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 3, July 2016.
      Purpose We intend to show that the experience of workers on the margins of international business is akin to the funeralesque. We understand the funeralesque as the appropriation of the value generated by workers across the production networks of international business. Design/methodology/approach Drawing from our engagement with crematorium workers, we articulate the narratives of workers, describing the insecurities and injustices experienced by them. We draw from a six month long qualitative engagement with seven workers in a crematorium in Ahmedabad, India. Findings The experiences of marginal subjects provides important insights on how international business, in conjunction with states, structures inequality for marginal subjects. Precariousness, social exclusion, low wages, and subjectivities of humiliation are the experience of marginal subjects. The reproduction of marginality in globalising cities is an important element of the funeralesque through which extraction and re-distribution of value across international networks is legitimised. Practical implications In understanding international business as the funeralesque, we demystify the power relations constituted by it. We provide a metaphor for dethroning the legitimacy of international business, and indicate that its modern practices are similar to the practices of value appropriation that occur in a funeral. Originality/value We develop the metaphor of the funeralesque to gain insights into the experiences of workers on the margins of international business. We are thus able to theorise the underbelly of globalising cities in a poetic, subversive way.

  • Practice transfer in MNCs: a process of tension and contestation
    • Authors: Toke Bjerregaard, Mai S Linneberg, Jakob Lauring

      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this article is to further the understanding of how the transfer and adoption of HQ-mandated work practices is shaped by ongoing struggles among the multiple actors of a subsidiary. We suggest an alternative perspective for theorizing and researching the management practices and structures that emerge in face of HQ demands for divergent practice change in subsidiaries, namely a theory of practice approach. Design/methodology/approach The article reports the findings of an ethnographic field study in a UK subsidiary of a multinational corporation based in Denmark. Findings The study provides a relevant contribution by demonstrating how the degree of adoption of alternative, HQ-mandated work systems undergoes dramatic changes over time due to socially dynamic negotiations and struggles between interest groups in a subsidiary. Research limitations/implications A practice theoretic approach unveils the underlying social micro-dynamics that shape the degree to which employees in subsidiaries ‘internalize’, actively sustain or disrupt divergent practices representing a given contextual rationale. Originality/value The practice perspective provides a way for understanding how the practices and rationales that emerge locally in response to HQ-demands are under ongoing (re)reconstruction. It responds to calls for research on why and how contextual rationales, institutional or cultural features, actively are made salient, polarize or converge, in conflictual practice transfer processes due to local contingencies.

  • Lost overseas? The challenges facing Korean transformational
           leadership in a cross-cultural context
    • Authors: Inju Yang
      First page: 121
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose this conceptual paper explores the leadership of Korean middle managers in a cross-cultural context. Design/methodology/approach we present three propositions in relation to perceived charisma, individualized consideration and inspirational communication of Korean transformational leadership at home and overseas, especially in comparison with Anglo Saxon countries such as North America and the United Kingdom. Findings following the notion of implicit theory of leadership, we argue that the effectiveness of Korean leadership may depend on cultural dimensions such as collectivism/individualism and power distance. Research limitations/implications we adapt the perspective of transformational leadership with its universal appeal to various cultures in examining the effectiveness of Korean leadership at home and overseas. Practical implications our illustration of Korean leadership in a cross-cultural context sheds light on the challenges facing Korean management in global contexts. Originality/value despite significant ongoing investment abroad by Korean conglomerates, relatively little has been written on Korean leadership in cross-cultural contexts. We believe this paper could stimulate further studies in this area.

  • Transnational activities of Colombians in the US: A qualitative
           exploration of the migration-development nexus
    • First page: 140
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose This article analyses the transnational activities of Colombian migrants in the US, the reasons why migrants engage, or not, in these activities, and the impact of migrants’ transnational activities at the household, community and national level. Design/methodology/approach The article analyses data obtained from focus groups with migrant families and interviews with government officials and an expert researcher, as well as secondary data sources. Findings The main transnational activities in which Colombian migrants engage are those individually oriented, while participation in collective actions such as philanthropy or membership of political parties and hometown associations is limited. The impact of those activities varies when analysed at different levels. Overall, transnational activities of Colombian migrants can be seen as contributing to the perpetuation of South-North dependency, even if they help improve the socioeconomic situation of migrants and their families. Originality/value The article contributes to the migration-development nexus debate by pointing to the significance of distinguishing the level of analysis (micro, meso, macro) when studying the impacts of transnationalism on development.

  • Reflective and Cognitive Perspectives on International Capital Budgeting
    • First page: 167
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose Recurring failures of international business investments motivate reflective, cognitive and socio-constructivist perspectives on the international capital budgeting process. This paper develops a framework for an enlightened management and governance praxis against a backdrop of cognitive and motivational biases promoting a reflected international capital budgeting decision process. Furthermore, societally relevant questions are raised whether these biases might have an effect on various stakeholders in public-private partnerships. Design/methodology/approach Based on an interdisciplinary literature review and substantiated by empirical studies, the cognitive biases and flaws of the international capital budgeting process are discussed making use of a five stages process scheme. The article applies the interpretative paradigm and regards the international capital budgeting process stages as a socio-political process of reality construction and critically assesses the motives of its actors. Consequently, the authors develop and discuss three principle-based behavioural rationalisation factors. Findings International capital budgeting is not a process of rational choice but of social construction of reality. Reflective prudence, critical communication and independence are three rationalisation factors which could, if applied along the five stages of the international capital budgeting process, systematically lead to de-biasing and thus enhance the performative praxis of international investment decisions. Research limitations/implications The international capital budgeting process deals with the construction of future scenarios under uncertainty and assessment of potential success and failure of future projects. The defined (or any other) rationalisation factors are subject to cultural biases and can naturally not guarantee successful investment projects. Although the success of the application of various de-biasing tactics was empirically confirmed, the aggregated rationalization factors of the paper have not been tested. Practical implications The paper is aimed at enhancing the reflective understanding and the performative praxis of the international capital budgeting process. The practical recommendations aggregated in the rationalization factors are explicitly elaborated for international business practitioners. Originality/value The article provides a rare interdisciplinary literature review on cognitive biases in the international capital budgeting process. It critically reflects the social construction of it various stages and its social repercussions and develops practical rationalization factors for an enhancement of the international capital budgeting process as a performative praxis.

  • Shareholder activism and the ethical harnessing of institutional
           investors: The unique case of ShareAction
    • Authors: Mila Ivanova
      First page: 189
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 2, May 2016.
      Purpose This study aims to foster a deeper understanding of socio-ethical shareholder activism by outlining the corporate campaigning strategies of a UK based NGO and by assessing their impact on both institutional investors and the practices of two multinational companies. As we move into a world where shareholder ownership is becoming more democratised, shareholder activism is gaining prominence in the US, Europe and Asia, opening new avenues for participation in corporate governance by stakeholders such as NGOs who have traditionally been uninvolved in corporate decisions. Design/methodology/approach The article adopts a qualitative methodology and case study research design. It relies on semi-structured interviews, analysis of documents and participant observation. Findings The study sheds light into the ways in which NGOs are connecting themselves to the financial sector. It argues that they can pursue their political goals by framing their arguments in a way that emphasises the short-term financial risks/benefits for investors. Second, it demystifies the term ‘shareholder activism’, transforming it from an action tool belonging only to big and powerful institutions, to a tool which gives other stakeholders such as NGOs and ordinary people a real stake in companies’ affairs. What is more, the study highlights the divergent nature of institutional shareholder activist intervention in the US and the UK. Research limitations/implications Given the generally long-term nature of shareholder campaigns, which can sometimes span over several years, it could have been beneficial to adopt a longitudinal research design. Future research can endeavour to focus on a number of different campaigns over a period that exceeds three years. Practical implications The research has implications for NGOs adopting a shareholder activist campaigning model and for policy makers aiming to encourage investor stewardship. Originality/value The fact that the research field of socio-ethical shareholder activism is relatively new and under-explored by academia, coupled with the growing incidence of the phenomenon in the UK and across the world, as well as its potential benefits for society as a whole, renders further investigation into the topic necessary.
