Exploring the Interconnections between Institutions, Innovation, Geography, and Internationalization in Emerging Markets
The study of emerging markets and the unique characteristics of emerging market multinationals have been gaining increasing attention for at least the past two decades. Reflective of this, International Journal of Emerging Markets has now entered its tenth year of publication. Within the broader emerging market context, this e-book captures several interrelated themes that have been repeatedly demonstrated to be important phenomena to both emerging markets and their firms.
The papers in this e-book provide a glimpse into the interconnections between the constructs of institutions, innovation, geography, and internationalization in emerging markets. While it is common for academic research to focus narrowly on very specific topics, it is also useful to periodically examine the broader interconnections between areas to provide an overall map of related research topics. Academic interest in emerging markets has grown steadily over past two decades.
While not exclusively focused on Latin America, the e-book also devotes significant attention to this relatively understudied region, with one paper focusing on Latin American MNCs as a whole, plus four others focusing on Brazil, one on Chile and one on Argentina.
It is hoped that this e-book spurs greater studies on the interconnected nature of academic constructs in emerging markets, as well as further cooperative efforts between groups in bringing such studies together.
