BACKGROUND

After 2002 in Växjö, Sweden and 2004 in Edinburgh, UK, this will be the third EIASM “Workshop on International Strategy and Cross-Cultural Management”.

The workshop invites both theoretical and empirical contributions in either International Strategy or Cross-Cultural Management. We are particularly interested in papers that may help us to enhance the dialogue between these two related, yet distinct subject areas.

The workshop is organised on the basis of a call for papers, coupled with keynote addresses by invited speakers and the authors of the best papers (one best overall paper and one best paper written by a junior scholar).
