Resource description

Institutions occupy an important place in the study of international business (IB), be it in the context of established fields of inquiry like multinational enterprises (MNEs) and political risk or emerging research themes that integrate context. The focus on institutional context suggests IB research could be advanced by exploring the impact of institutions and how they change over time. In this paper, the authors address the topic of institutional change in times of persistent and rising pressure on nations to adjust the institutional configurations of their business systems. They advance a model of micro-level responses to institutional misalignment and explore how these responses interact with one another, with structural elements of the business system, and with system-level adjustment responses to produce variations in the adjustment responses of national systems. They conclude by discussing the implications of our model and findings for IB research.
