The Structural Reshaping of Globalization

Join us for this online lecture, November 20, 10 AM Eastern

Presented by Peter Buckley,
Professor of International Business,
Leeds University Business School

This talk examines the role of theory, specifically internalization theory, in examining the structural reshaping of globalization.
Four empirical changes in the global economy are identified.  

  1. The fracture in the global economy between the USA and China, including “the splinternet”.
  2. “Systemic Competition” and its consequences.
  3. Rising VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) and corporate responses.
  4. Innovation. The theoretical response is presented by  nested theories of internalisation, relying on common principles and concepts.

Presented online, through Zoom (

Alain Verbeke, Professor of International Business Strategy at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary will serve as discussant.
