  • International environmental NGOs and the politics of genetically modified
           organisms: rethinking resistance in international business
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 13, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose Our purpose is to problematize the role played by international environmental non-governmental organizations (IENGOs) in the governance debate over Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in order to sustain that IENGOs are important actors in global environmental governance due to their resistance to transnational corporations. Design/methodology/approach The paper presents a reflection on the literature review focused on civil society and IENGOs. Accordingly, the political role of IENGOs in GMO governance is highlighted grounded on the negotiation process of the Cartagena Protocol. At the end, we stress that IENGOs act as resistance actors to corporations’ practices. Findings The investigation of the political role played by the IENGOs in the negotiation process of the Cartagena Protocol highlighted that these actors use information to influence decision-makers and power holders meanwhile provides know-how and material resources to local activists and social movement organizations at the domestic level. As a result, the political role played by IENGOs in GMO governance place these international actors as highly influential on the International Business domain. Originality/value This paper highlights the importance of IENGOs as resistant actors in what regards corporations’ practices. We also sustain that the relationships between states, corporations and civil society actors at the governance level should be part of IB’s research agenda to advance the understanding of how civil society mobilizes, articulates and produces consent and coercion in the international domain. Therefore, the paper contributes to foster actors and voices from the margins as relevant IB research topic.

  • Where Silence Speaks– Insights from Third World NGOs
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 13, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose This paper unpacks the conflation between the silence and purported passivity of Third World NGOs (TNGOs). Explaining the invisibility of their voices in the critical and post-development perspectives, it locates the inquiry in the context of the action of these TNGOs. Design/methodology/approach The paper follows the phronetic research approach which involves a case study of a locally developed Indian NGO. It uses phronetic inquiry along with Ashis Nandy's notion of ‘silent coping’ as the conceptual framework. To explain the purported passivity of TNGOs in the texts under global circulation, the paper uses Walter Mignolo’s discussion on ‘texts in circulation’. Findings The uncertain nature of action- - that it begets further action possibilities; precludes the prospect of visualizing such action-spaces in the context of their generation. This emergent nature of local action-spaces makes it difficult to capture them within dominating global discursive structures thereby creating local spaces of agency for TNGO actors. Selective appropriation of artifacts and texts from the global circulation and creation of alternate stake structures at the local level support the realization of such action-spaces. Further, such local artifacts and texts do not travel into texts circulating globally thereby rendering TNGOs invisible and silent in the reading of global texts, leading to TNGOs being framed as passive. Originality/value This paper locates the voices and acts of the TNGOs and highlights the mechanisms which enable them to silently cope with structures of discursive domination, thereby contributing to post-development studies and post-colonial organizational analysis.

  • The organizational and geographical boundaries of the firm. Focus on
           labour as a major stakeholder.
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 13, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose The paper aims: to analyse the organizational and geographical (by nation-states) boundaries of the firm and their impact on labour; and to develop a theoretical framework in which firms’ boundaries are analysed from the point of view of labour as a main stakeholder in the firm. Design/methodology/approach The paper considers the boundaries in terms of: perspectives (legal/proprietary; responsibility; and control); stakeholders (shareholders and managers as well as labour, governments and suppliers); and dimensions (organization of production; geographical/by nation-state; sectoral). The paper analyses various organizational forms of production in terms of: control (over labour process and brand); responsibility for labour employed across the value chain; and labour bargaining power. The firm is seen in the context of labour as main stakeholder and of strategic control versus the property rights view of the firm. The paper contains references to some real life cases which support the arguments developed at the theoretical level. Findings In terms of organizational boundaries the paper analyses hybrid forms of firm organization and their implications for the position of labour. In the context of geographical boundaries, conclusions are drawn on the impact of TNCs’ direct activities on labour. Changes in organizational and geographical boundaries are seen as strategic moves that lead to the fragmentation of labour and to the weakening of its bargaining position. There is an analysis of the role of nation-state regulatory regimes in creating opportunities for TNCs’ advantages towards labour. The basic pillars of this theoretical approach are: (a) emphasis on labour as a main stakeholder as well as one of the main actors towards whom firms develop strategies and who, in turn, develops countervailing strategies; and (b) the assignation of responsibility for labour over that part of the value chain – which could be the whole of it – over which the firm exercises strategic control. Research limitations/implications More case study work would further support the arguments in the paper and lead to refinements of the theory Originality/value The work puts labour at the forefront of analysis in the boundaries of the firm. It develops a theoretical framework for this analysis and for its policy implications including policies by Trade Unions.

  • CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AS RELIEF FROM RESPONSIBILITY: NPO
           LEGITIMIZATIONS FOR CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS IN CONTESTED TERRAINS
    • Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 13, Issue 1, March 2017.
      Purpose Thus the aim of this paper is to get a deeper understanding how not-for-profit organisations (NPOs) discursively legitimize their corporate engagement through cross-sector partnerships (CSPs) in general, and particularly how they construct legitimacy for partnering with firms involved in the commodification of water. The paper seeks to shed light on the values embedded in these discursive accounts and the kind of societal effects and power relations they generate, we are particularly interested in understanding the role of modernity in shaping our responsibilities (or lack of them) via various technologies and practices Design/methodology/approach Drawing on Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) (Fairclough 1995) we analyze the discursive accounts of three water-related CSPs involving the three biggest bottled water producers in the world (Nestlé, Coca-Cola and Danone) and three major non-profits (The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)). Findings 1) The NPO’s legitimate their corporate engagement in the water CSPs through the use of two global discourses; global governance discourse and the global climate crisis discourse. 2) Relief from responsibility is achieved through three processes: replacement of moral with technical responsibility, denial of proximity, and employment of intermediaries to whom responsibility is outsourced Originality/value This paper explores the processes of legitimizing accounts for CSPs, particularly focusing on NPO discourse and their use of CSR elements and the consequences of such discursive constructs, this has received little to no attention in previous research.

  • 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.
