JIBS Special Issue: The Multinational in Geographic Space



JIBS Special Issue: The Multinational in Geographic Space


Guest Editors: Sjoerd Beugelsdijk, Ram Mudambi and Ulf Andersson


This special issue of Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) advances a crucial new research agenda - to model international and subnational spatial variation jointly.  Such analysis integrates the discrete effects of national borders with the continuous effects of distance. Both international and subnational contexts are affected by distance, but only the former are affected by borders.
