This special issue focuses drawing insights from Asian management and entrepreneurship and using them to consider implications for European theory and practice.
Contributions to this special issue are encouraged from scholars juxtaposing theoretical positions (theories of Asian management versus Asian management theory), juxtaposing practice or developing European/universalist theory after engagement with Asian management and entrepreneurial phenomena.
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Asian management and entrepreneurship
- Varieties of capitalism, comparative structural explanations for management and entrepreneurial practice
- Trajectories of entrepreneurship, reasons for entrepreneurship in Asia versus Europe and their differing pathways of development and success
- Entrepreneurship of last resort and characteristics of entrepreneurs and managers more generally
- Governance of Asian firms, especially when internationalising (and the consequent challenges and opportunities of European firms)
- The role of diasporas in internationalising Asian firms.
- Nature of Asia's new middle class consumers and the relevance of mainstream marketing theory and practice
