AIB Middle East & North Africa 2020 Chapter Conference
December 14 - December 17
Theme: Exploring Resilience and Agility within International Business in the MENA Region
Submission Deadline: August 15, 2020
Overview: Understanding how MNEs handle and overcome the unique political, religious, cultural and commercial environments present in the MENA region becomes critical for the global success of MNEs in remaining resilient and agile in the face of uncertainty. Combined with the efforts of EMNEs from the MENA region to increasingly engage in outward investments offers a rich contextual testbed for theorizing and analyzing the strategic role that the MENA region can play in the global business community.
Therefore, the focus of this conference is to offer new insights into the unique challenges and opportunities that the MENA presents for MNEs. More specifically, it seeks to bring forward insights about resilient and agile international business practices in the MENA region. We welcome conceptual and empirical papers and panels that employ quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods approaches to address this overarching theme.
