Deadline for Participation


AIB-SE is excited to announce its 2017 annual conference with the theme: Navigating (Anti)Globalism. Trade liberalization has stalled and coincided with a rise in protectionist and anti-globalist sentiment, e.g., Brexit, rejection of the TPP in the US, and opposition to the TTIP in the EU. These unanticipated and rapidly changing developments create uncertainty for global business leaders, who must now strategize on how to deal with consumers, governments, and markets in this new environment. A number of questions come to mind, e.g., How can foreign firms overcome protectionist sentiments among consumers and government regulators? How can/should domestic firms capitalize on them? What are the implications of negative sentiments towards immigration for expatriates and talent management? Will capital flows change due to political resentment?
Since this new uncertain environment affects all areas of business, there is no special track devoted to the theme, rather we encourage submissions in their respective tracks that directly address conducting international business in this new environment. Fittingly, this year’s conference takes place in Washington, D.C., in cooperation with the University of the District of Columbia.
AIB-SE ( is one of the largest and most active regional divisions of the Academyof International Business’s eighteen worldwide chapters. AIB-SE’s annual conference centers on the presentation of the newest ideas in international business to an international audience of academic scholars and business practitioners. The conference is characterized by a strong professional focus, providing participants with a supportive and collegial platform to discuss and develop their ideas, as well as opportunity for mentoring of authors to enhance their papers for publication.
