Abstract

A significant transformation in the world economy in the past few decades has been the emergence of internationalizing firms from the emerging economies to world markets. This phenomenon has received prominent research attention in the literature. Yet, post-expansion challenges faced by these firms and the strategies they have employed in gaining strategic advantages in their host markets and in transferring knowledge and capabilities to their home market firms has not been studied as extensively. This has led to a fragmented picture underscoring the need for a literature inventory and a prospective look forward. In this paper, we address this need by taking stock of the current literature, paint a synthesized picture of that literature’s landscape, and forward questions for future research. We also comment on the contributions that appear in this volume to fuel scholarly discussion on the questions raised in these papers.
