AIB Journals Webinar: Informal Institutions

Loading Events

Theme: Informal Institutions in International Business

Time: 14 September 2022, 14:00 UTC (View Local Time)

Registration Deadline: 13 September 2022

Informal institutions serve as the invisible threads that connect the fabric of social groupings, making them a critical element in the study of IB, but also especially challenging to capture both theoretically and empirically. As a result, there has been limited work on the topic, a lack of clarity on how to conceptualize and measure informal institutions, and a limited understanding of the role they play in IB. This webinar introduces the forthcoming Special Issue of Journal of International Business Studies that seek to address these gaps.

About This Webinar Series: The editorial teams behind AIB’s Journal of International Business Studies and Journal of International Business Policy launched this series of webinars to provide global experts a platform to discuss their findings on some of the field’s biggest questions.

Each of these discussions will be focused around a unique line of inquiry, with authors of recently published articles in JIBS, JIBP, and AIB Insights speaking to how their research addresses that core question. Virtual attendees can then interact with our presenters, digging deeper into the issues that interest them most.

The webinar series is being coordinated by Klaus Meyer (Western University) and Dana Minbaeva (King’s College London), in conjunction with the editorial teams of JIBS, JIBP, and AIB Insights.
