“ASIA IN EUROPE” IS TIMELY

This 2nd Asian-focused Workshop is a space for scholars based in Europe to gather and discuss current research on management and entrepreneurship in Asia. Participants will submit papers with a perspective of Asia, China, India, Japan, SE Asia and Korea.

During the first edition, the event became a unique opportunity for researchers to share their work, give feedback on each other’s conclusions and form new research collaborations while seeking to explore the theoretical and empirical issues related to a diversity of themes (check out here to find out about last’s year’s intellectual environment in the event report).

In short, this EIASM Workshop will review research on Asian organizations, managers, firm-founders, strategy, organizational behaviour and resources. Its vision is to promote high-quality work that contributes to the development of knowledge in the fields of strategic management and entrepreneurship. As with the first edition, both leading and young scholars will meet and share their interests and perspectives.
 

“ASIA IN EUROPE” IS RELEVANT

The Workshop will be structured around three tracks each working a specific space:

Track 1: Asian Management

Track 2: Asian Entrepreneurship

Track 3: Asian Business Challenge to the Global Economy

A variety of themes are to be addressed, including the ones below:

• The Financial Crisis: Strategies for Recovery from Asia.
• Mercantilism, export-orientation and trade surpluses as destabilizing factors for markets and firms.
• Japan’s ‘lost decades’ and its impact on firms in Asia and the World.
• Indian service sector firms and their Western counterparts: cooperation and competition.
• Made in Europe, Made in Japan and Made in the US vs. Made in China and Made in India vs. Made Together.
• Input based growth vs. efficiency based growth strategy formulation at Asian firms.
• The modus operandi of the Chinese and Indian Diaspora; the value of guanxi, social and political networks.
• How does the European market (and its economic and monetary union) affect strategy formulation of old and new Asian firms?
• Distinct biases and heuristics mediating entrepreneurship: Asian perceptions of business opportunities.
• Institutional elements and the structure of opportunity in Indian and Chinese entrepreneurship, and in Japanese non-entrepreneurship.
• Entrepreneurship of last resort: images, myths and metaphors of Asian entrepreneurs.
• Asian conglomerates and family firms: reorganization, governance, decentralization, minority shareholders, international partnerships and transparency.
