  • Flexible identities and cross-border knowledge networking
    • First page: 318
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 4, October 2016.
      Purpose To explore and discuss the use of the flexible, discursive nature of ethnic identity as a means of facilitating the construction and use of transnational knowledge networks. Design/methodology/approach This paper examines the influence of ‘intangibles’ on international business, using a case study examining how Taiwanese people in London construct and use their professional networks for knowledge management. The methodology is ethnographic, including participant-observation, interviews and archival research. Findings Taiwanese businesspeople in London used their ethnic identity for networking, not only within the Taiwanese community, but also combined different identities to network through different groups. The findings suggest that the flexible nature of identity provides a means by which knowledge networks can be constructed across borders, providing insight into the actual processes through which knowledge is transferred in international business. Research limitations/implications An identity approach can add a more nuanced approach of real-life situations to the more traditional culture-focused approach. Greater methodological variety is needed if IB studies are to incorporate more nuanced perspectives on cross-cultural management, and to develop this study’s conclusions. Originality/value Provides insight into the means and processes through which transnational networks are constructed and knowledge shared across borders, and the seldom-analysed role of identity, in this case ethnic identity, in these phenomena.

  • Globalization, academic knowledge interests and the global careers
           discourse
    • First page: 331
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 4, October 2016.
      Purpose This article has two objectives. Our first objective is to identify the academic knowledge interests (managerial, agentic, curatorial, critical) prevalent in research on global careers. The second objective is to consider and critique the discourse constructed and perpetuated in academic texts on global careers concerning globalization, global careers and the global careerist. Design/methodology/approach Using a critical discourse analysis the article analyzes sixty-six articles and book chapters and one book on the subject of a global career. The authors positioned the texts into one of four academic knowledge interests - managerial, agentic, curatorial and critical. The texts were also analyzed with respect to the discourse manifested in relation to globalization, global careers and the global careerist. Findings We found that the texts were driven by primarily managerial academic knowledge interests, followed by agentic and curatorial interests. Very few reflected critical knowledge interests. In addition, texts on global careers accept the globalization of business as natural and unproblematic and, consequently, construct a discourse about the global career and the global careerist which fits the idea that global business expansion in its current form is inevitable and inescapable. Originality/value The article is the first to analyze the academic knowledge production and discourse on 'global careers' and the 'global careerist' as it is emerging among career scholars. It is also one of the very few articles offering a more critical perspective on global careers specifically and careers more generally.

  • Critiquing the marginalised place of research on women within
           international business: where are we now and where should we be going?
    • First page: 348
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 4, October 2016.
      Purpose This article provides a critical perspective of how the theme of women, and more broadly gender, has been treated in extant international business (IB) literature. It also suggests meaningful and promising avenues in this research space. Design/methodology/approach This article is not intended to provide a comprehensive literature review; rather it offers a critical and reflective view on the development of the IB stream of literature in which discussion of women has been largely marginalised. Findings While women and gender have been topics of considerable discussion across a range of disciplines in the social sciences, they have received limited examination in the IB literature despite this discipline being most suitable for such, given its socio-cultural analyses across international borders and organisations. Research limitations/implications Several themes are suggested as fertile future research avenues. These themes identify gaps in existing knowledge, but more importantly also problematise prevailing views that IB scholars tend to hold about women and gender. The future research themes suggest that the very context of IB signifies the need for systematic gender analysis which might advance current understanding of women specifically, and gender, more broadly, in the IB field. Originality/value This article makes a salient and timely contribution to the IB field in providing an original, erstwhile unexamined critique of the marginal reflection on women and gender within extant IB research.

  • Global oligopolistic competition and foreign direct investment: revisiting
           and extending the literature
    • First page: 369
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 4, October 2016.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to re-visit and re-invigorate the oligopolistic industry perspective on MNC strategy. Design/methodology/approach Based on insights from the Industrial Organization tradition and Strategic Management, the paper brings the original insights of the oligopolistic industry perspective into a modern context by outlining a conceptual framework that may guide future International Business (IB) research on MNC strategy in oligopolistic industries. Findings This paper demonstrates how contemporary IB literature pays little attention to a key insight of the early IB literature, namely that FDI often is driven by strategic interaction among MNCs in oligopolistic industries. Instead, the contemporary IB literature focuses on FDI as a way to reduce transaction costs and/or as a way to leverage and build capabilities across borders. The paper argues that progressing global concentration in many industries warrants a rediscovery of the oligopolistic perspective on FDI. Originality/value The paper provides a comprehensive and unique literature review of the literature on MNC strategy in oligopolistic industries. Based on this review, the paper develops a novel conceptual framework that may inspire future IB research on MNC strategy in oligopolistic industries

  • Corporate social responsibility, governance and stakeholders: a bank in
           the upbeat of the crisis
    • First page: 388
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 4, October 2016.
      Purpose Using the global financial crisis as a critical event and based on institutional theory and stakeholder theory, this paper explores the relationship between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. The question is how stakeholders can influence corporate responses to societal change by using their position in the governance structure. Design/methodology/approach The analysis is based on a historical analysis of data collected mainly between 2002 and 2004. The historical perspective enables an understanding of the response of the company to environmental changes. Findings The approach enables researchers to relate the normative component of CSR to specific governance mechanisms. These governance mechanisms are specified in direct- and indirect influence pathways. Historical data sheds light on how, in the upbeat of the crisis, stakeholders have influenced the principles and policies of the ING Group, a Dutch financial company. Research limitations/implications The paper suggests that stakeholders influence principles – normative assumptions that guide corporate decisions – mainly in dialogue-based meetings (direct influence pathways). Companies are made accountable in indirect influence pathways such as regulations. I also demonstrate that a historical approach enables an understanding of long-term historical developments and the linking of corporate policies to the normative assumptions of stakeholders.   Practical implications If stakeholders wish to assess the social responsibility of a company, they should assess the governance structure in relation to the principles and policies. The power structure within a company and that within the institutional framework in which the company operates (the governance system) strongly influence how a company executes its social responsibilities. Originality/value Insights into the complex relationship between corporate governance and the social responsibilities of a company are developed.

    • First page: 218
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 12, Issue 3, July 2016.
      Purpose In this editorial, we introduce the special issue entitled, ‘Voices at/from the margins: Articulating the consequences of international business. Design/methodology/approach We begin by briefly describing how the idea for the special issue was initiated and, then, provide an overview of the articles included. Findings The editorial contains a discussion of the themes emerging from the special issue articles. Originality/value We provide some consideration of how the collection of articles included in the special issue, both individually and collectively, contribute to listening to subjects that are situated at the margins of international business.

  • The Structural Violence of Globalization
    • First page: 222
      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.

  • Capturing Postcoloniality in Action: RAND, Rationality, and Subaltern
           Encounters during the `Vietnam War’
    • First page: 259
      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 Funeralesque as the Experience of Workers at the Margins of
           International Business: Seven Indian Narratives
    • First page: 282
      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.

  • How might we study international business to account for marginalized
           subjects? Turning to practice and situating knowledges
    • First page: 306
      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.
