Project Details


This research proposal aims to improve the understanding of the current role of institutional environments and business ecosystems in the competitiveness and internationalization process.

Issues relating to politics, policies and institutions are often particularly salient, in both home and host countries, when considering EMNEs.

Focusing on outward FDI from emerging economies and emerging market multinational enterprises (EMNEs) is a key issue in this project. This research aims to shed more light on the multi-level interrelationships between institutions and the internationalization of EMNEs.
