7TH AALBORG INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS CONFERENCE | AALBORG UNIVERSITY

“THE RISE OF NEW APPROACHES TO INTERNATIONALISATION: STRATEGIC AND MANAGERIAL IMPLICATIONS”

DATES: MAY 30 – JUNE 1 2018

Presently, internationalisation, and more so globalisation are facing numerous challenges. For several reasons, countries and regions have embarked on a journey that alienates them from the paradigm of global approaches to doing business. Since late June 2016, the British referendum resulted in a process of separation of the United Kingdom from the European Union. The November 2016 presidential election in the United States of America brought about a new vision for the role and participation of the US in international business. Thus, the terms related to nationalism and regionalism have come up and are becoming new regulators for the ways in which countries and firms take and will take part in the internationalisation process. How will the contemporary trends in the policies of countries impact international business on nation-, state- and firm level? Will the latest trends impact companies and industries – and if so, how? Will the notion of value chains be impacted, and will we see an increased disintegration hereof? The role of the context becomes of critical importance; what changes would be associated with this trend? The impact of nation states becomes more significant in defining the ways in which internationalisation process will take place. Other institutions on a national level start changing their roles and functions. Thus, what will be the institutional impact on the international activities of firms and industries? These and numerous other related issues raise questions that need relevant studies.

The goal of the 7th Biannual Aalborg International Business Conference is to further our understanding of how these issues should be addressed and dealt with.
