THE TURNING TIDE OF GLOBALIZATION: IMPLICATIONS FOR EUROPEAN-ASIAN BUSINESS COLLABORATION

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE 2017 EAMSA CONFERENCE AT COPENHAGEN BUSINESS SCHOOL, DENMARK

Potential specific topics related to the overall theme include (but are not limited to):
  • Is European-Asian business integration losing momentum? Are European-Asian businesses slowing down or even reversing the progressing integration of the past 20-30 years? Will we witness a growing intra-regional consolidation at the expense of inter-regional integration? Or will recent events on the contrary lead to a deepening and consolidation of European- Asian business collaboration?

  • Is the nature of Europe-Asian interfirm linkages (vertical and horizontal) and network collaborations changing as a consequence of weakened globalization push? Are we moving toward more shallow forms of collaborations between European and Asian firms, countering the trend toward deeper and more reciprocal business linkages of past decades?

  • What will be the implications for strategic management in European and Asian business engaged in interregional trade and investment? Will the expatriate and coordination practices between the regions change? Will management need to engage more in addressing cultural issues? What will the implications be for HQ-affiliate relations and subsidiary roles of the changing global context? Is the need to become a ‘strategic insider’ in host countries accentuated or reduced as a consequence of globalization countering developments?

  • Are European and Asian businesses disengaging? Are European firms in Asia insourcing hitherto outsourced activities and/ or divesting their engagements in Asia? Are Asian firms reversing or changing their acquisition strategies in Europe in reaction to Brexit and new trade policies in the US? What role does new technology such as robotics play in reshoring activities and diminishing the division-of-labor between Asia and Europe?

  • If the US is withdrawing as the overseer of the global trade and investment architecture, will new alliances and promoters emerge in Asia and Europe seeking to fill the void? Is Asia increasingly taking over as a driver of Asian-European business collaboration? What opportunities does stalled globalization provide for European and Asian business and what can policy makers do to maintain and promote Europe-Asia business collaboration in this new situation?
