AFRICAN JOURNAL OF MARKETING MANAGEMENT (AJMM)
Call for papers
As usual we invite papers within all fields of international marketing: standardization – adaptation of the marketing mix, competitive advantage, internationalization trajectories (Born Globals – traditional firms), performance of international marketing, entry mode strategies, relationship with foreign partners, role of contracts in international marketing, cross cultural / comparative studies, country of origin effects, global marketing strategies, portfolio strategies, product development, country risk analysis, , the new promotional landscape etc. One “evident” field of research is of course international marketing in the post financial crisis era.
This time however we will particularly encourage participants to submit papers reviewing the state of the art of our discipline. More than thirty years have elapsed since our discipline took off in earnest and we still have to agree on common platform for further theory advancements. Many of our contributions show contradictory results, with more or less the same hypotheses being supported and rejected – much dependent on the context in which the studies have been carried out, and sometimes also due to different methodologies. We invite you to take a critical view on our own contribution and to discuss how we can be useful to academia and business community at large. We therefore also invite participants to present future project ideas, in order to discuss possible collaboration and hence (hopefully) to help us get further in understanding this field of study. All full manuscripts and abstracts in digital form (MS Word file) should be submitted electronically by February 15, 2010 via the conference webpage. Manuscripts should follow the style guidelines of the Journal of International Marketing (Journal of International Marketing Submission Guidelines.pdf?available for downloading from the webpage) and are submitted with the understanding that they are original, unpublished works and are not being reviewed elsewhere.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings in digital format. The authors can choose to publish either their full manuscript or a detailed abstract in the proceedings when first submitting their work. Each participant of the conference will receive a CD containing the conference proceedings. In addition, accepted manuscript will be considered for publication in Advances in International Marketing through a double-blind review process.

International business focuses on a group of firms that face distinctive decision making problems. Multinational enterprises (MNEs) control value chains that are disrupted by country-specific transport costs, government restrictions differences in tastes and production conditions. Such firms face two fundamental challenges. The first concerns controlling the costs that arise from the complexities of multinational activity. These include a diverse set of tasks such as managing the impact of exchange-rate variations, differences of national culture, customs and law, practices that constrain employee compensation, evaluation practices and so on. The second concerns creating value through leveraging their international networks to foster innovation and knowledge. This includes using their subsidiary networks, which serve as local extensions that tap into knowledge clusters, or develop into geographic centers of excellence. Thus, the subsidiary network can serve as a means of creating new technological, managerial and marketing competencies.
The Research Forum encourages the submission of cutting edge research aimed at defining the future of the multinational enterprise. Submission deadline: January 30, 2010
The following areas of research are illustrative, but not exhaustive:
- Geography and value creation: The global organization of the value-adding activities of multinational enterprises and the interplay between the organization of these activities and the characteristics of their locations. This includes off-shore value production and international logistics systems.
- Knowledge integration: MNEs are typically large firms that excel at combining and recombining diverse bodies of knowledge in order to create value. This process of knowledge integration is still not well understood. Research proposals studying these processes are particularly welcome.
- International corporate entrepreneurship: It is now recognized that MNE innovation requires a considerable degree of entrepreneurship within the confines of the firm. How is such entrepreneurship fostered, nurtured and managed?
- Multinationals from Emerging Market Economies: In recent years, we have seen the evolution and emergence of high profile multinationals from emerging market economies. This phenomenon creates interesting research opportunities related to the motivations and paths of the emergence of these new multinationals, their management of foreign subsidiaries, inward and outward knowledge flows, among others. Research that provides new theoretical and empirical insights on these multinationals as well as cross-national comparative research on emerging MNEs from diverse developing countries is welcome.
- Technological clusters: Highly tacit R&D-based knowledge resides in certain geographic areas known as “technological clusters,” where R&D work that involves highly tacit knowledge can be performed by R&D scientists that are co-located. Yet extant research offers contradictory insights on the value of locating R&D activities within technological clusters. Do firms that locate their R&D activities within technological clusters have different levels of innovative performance than firms that do not?
- Radical vs. incremental innovation: A common perspective is that innovation can be characterized as either breakthrough or incremental. Are MNE’s better suited to conduct radical or incremental innovation? How do MNE approaches to radical vs. incremental innovation differ?
- Networks: The study of international networks, both intra- and inter-organizational, their strategies, consequences, and performance outcomes.
- Boundary-spanning: MNEs must facilitate cooperation across national and cultural boundaries. Boundary spanners are entities that facilitate relationships between groups with divergent aims. How do boundary-spanners function within MNEs? In what ways do boundary-spanners enhance interaction between MNE business units? Do boundary-spanners influence the effectiveness or efficiency of the MNE value chain?
The forum will consist of competitive sessions, panels and poster sessions. If you are submitting a panel, please ask all panelists to email indicating that they will attend if the panel is accepted.
Papers and panel proposals should be emailed by January 30, 2010 to: firstname.lastname@example.org

The United Nations Global Compact –Retrospect and Prospect
Guest Editors: Andreas Rasche, Malcolm McIntosh, Sandra Waddock
The United Nations Global Compact now has nearly 7,000 business and non-business participants, and has in its first ten years of life become the world’s largest corporate citizenship initiative.
Established by former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 2000, the initiative will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2010. As a central actor on the world stage of corporate responsibility and citizenship, the Global Compact has played a central role in raising the aspirations of companies, NGOs, and other actors around the implementation of its ten principles, in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment, and anti-corruption (for details about the UN Global Compact and its principles, see <http://www.unglobalcompact.org/>www.unglobalcompact.org).
Indeed, some have argued that the Global Compact has put corporate responsibility issues, particularly those related to the principles, onto the agenda of many companies.
Although global in reach and intent (with over half of all participants coming from developing economies), the Global Compact also established a strong presence in local economies through its local networks and regional clusters. Driven by constant innovation and improvement (e.g. the addition of the tenth principle in 2004 and the introduction of the Communication on Progress policy in 2003), and a sense of learning about how to build a better world through enterprise, the Global Compact has undergone a variety of changes over its existence. It is now poised to potentially help its signatories effect significant positive change in the future.
Although the initiative has attracted the interest of many businesses and civil society organizations, it also faces a lot of critique, mostly focusing on the absence of any clear compliance standards and the fact that many companies appear to sign the Compact without making significant changes in their strategies or practice.
To explore the possibilities, potentials, and gaps that exist in the Global Compact, this Special Issue invites interested researchers to:
- (a) critically assess the last ten years of the Global Compact and identify both its achievements and the gaps that currently exist and
- (b) to reflect on the future of the initiative by discussing remaining challenges and exploring future paths of development.
We call for papers that deal with all aspects and dynamics of the Global Compact, ranging from comparative case studies, qualitative and quantitative work assessing the Compact’s performance to date, as well as thoughtful essays about the Compact and its past, present, or future. We are interested in both conceptual and empirical studies that draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives (e.g. institutional theory, social movement theory, network theory), and in quantitative as well as qualitative methodological approaches that can flesh out our understanding of the Compact, particularly efforts to assess the Compact’s second ten years in light of the achievements and problems of the first ten years.
Possible topics for contributions include, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- Analyses of existing achievements and remaining challenges with regard to the implementation of the ten Global Compact principles, and the Compact’s other initiatives, partnerships, and alliances.
- The relation of the Global Compact to other existing and emerging corporate
responsibility initiatives (e.g., the Global Reporting Initiative, Social Accountability 8000, and ISO 26000).
- The Global Compact’s Communication on Progress (COP) policy and integrity measures.
- The development of the Global Compact as a network-based corporate responsibility initiative combining global issues with local concerns.
- The Global Compact’s role and relationship to global governance.
- The development of local networks throughout the world and the contribution of these networks to implementing the ten principles.
- The role and impact of specialized stakeholders (e.g., academia, unions, NGOs) in the development of the Global Compact.
- The development and impact of Global
Compact issue platforms such as the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), the Caring for Climate leadership initiative and the CEO Water Mandate.
- The role of the Global Compact as a “norm entrepreneur” in a world of diffuse power and great instability where social networks are increasingly supplementing international negotiating regimes.
The format of the papers must follow Business & Society contribution guidelines. Business & Society uses the American Psychological association citation and reference system (please see any recent copy of the journal for a sample):
Papers should include a 100-150 word abstract followed by 3 to 5 key-words. The paper itself should contain no indications of authorship. A title page containing full author contact information should be sent as a separate document to the coeditors. The citations and references should be APA compliant (see BAS guidelines).
Questions about the Special Issue should be addressed to guest editor Andreas Rasche (<mailto:email@example.com>firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dates and Timetable
The tentative timetable for the special issue is as follows:
- April 1, 2010 Paper submitted electronically to coeditors
- August 1, 2010 authors invited to resubmit revised papers
- October 30, 2010 Revised papers due (incorporating editors’ and external reviewers’ comments)
- January 30, 2011 authors notified if paper selected for special issue

During 2011 (tentative) publication of JBE Special Issue
Among the key lessons from the current global crisis is arguably that it takes responsible leadership - and responsible leaders - to build and sustain business that benefits multiple stakeholders rather than just a few risk-seeking individuals. Corporate scandals and the global economic crisis have triggered a broad discussion on the role of markets in value creation (and destruction) and that of business in society - its legitimacy, its obligations and its responsibilities. As a result, business leaders are increasingly held accountable for their actions (and failure to act) by a host of stakeholders and by society at large. These stakeholder expectations extend beyond mere compliance with rules and regulations and sustaining the economic bottom line. They include adhering to ethical standards, acting as good citizens and ensuring safe, fair, equal and respectful treatment of all employees. Moreover, given the power of large corporations in particular, stakeholders expect business leaders to take a more active role in addressing some of the world's most pressing problems such as protecting and fostering human rights, fighting corruption, ensuring sustainability, fighting global warming, helping alleviate, treating diseases like HIV/AIDS and malaria.
In light of these developments a new theoretical approach towards leadership is emerging under the umbrella term Responsible Leadership. (see e.g., Doh & Stumpf, 2005; Maak & Pless, 2006a; Waldmann & Galvin, 2008) It considers the context of leadership, reflects on the ethical underpinnings and makes the link with CSR, or more broadly, corporate responsibility. In this sense responsible leadership broadens the view of leaders' responsibilities from economic matters to environmental and societal issues. It “expands from an internal leadership perspective to a broader world view, from a shareholder mindset to a stakeholder orientation with respect to the leadership mandate” (Maak & Pless 2006b, 100) and operates at multiple levels of analysis, including the individual, group, organizational and societal levels.
We therefore call for papers advancing discussion and research on the nature of responsible leadership and its impact on business and society (see the topics listed below). We invite both theoretical and empirical papers, as well as case studies on exemplary responsible leadership.
The Nature of Responsible Leadership
- What is the purpose of leadership in a global stakeholder society?
- What do we learn from the literature about responsible leadership?
- How does responsible leadership relate to other leadership theories?
- What are the paradigmatic implications of a responsible leadership approach?
- What responsibilities do leaders have with regard to their followers, to the firm, to society and to nature and also to themselves?
- Who are the actors in the leader-follower relationship? What are the ethical underpinnings of this relationship? And what relationship understanding do we need to foster responsible leadership to emerge?
- What hinders responsible leadership from emerging?
- Considering the societal context in which leadership takes place
What are the responsibilities of business leaders in society, specifically in dealing with social, environmental and humanitarian challenges?
- What role can business leadership play in solving social, humanitarian and environmental problems in developing regions such as Africa?
- How does a responsible leadership approach help solve some of the most pressing problems?
- How can a responsible leadership approach help create sustainable triple-bottom-line performance?
- How can responsible business leaders mobilize different stakeholders to create social change for the better?
- What is the relationship between cultural context and the understanding of responsible leadership?
- Shaping the organizational context of leadership
What are the implications of a responsible leadership approach for a new understanding of corporate governance?
- What are the relationships between responsible leadership and ethical climate, stakeholder culture, citizenship orientation?
- What is the role of Human Resource Management (HRM) in fostering a responsible leadership approach in the organization?
- How can HRM systems and processes (performance management systems, selection processes, competency models, remuneration systems) be adapted to foster the practice of responsible leadership?
- How can responsible leadership contribute to the creation of social innovation?
- Looking at the leader-follower interaction and into the "inner theater" of responsible leaders
- What are the characteristics of responsible leaders and their followers?
- What leadership style best suits a responsible leadership approach?
- What motivates responsible leadership behavior?
- How do responsible leaders contribute to building social capital?
- How do responsible leaders make decisions, solve problems and cope with dilemmas?
- How to develop talented people to become responsible leaders?
- What is the relationship between responsible leadership and social entrepreneurship?
Timeline, Process & Standards
- All submissions will go through a double-blind review process.
Therefore, all author-identifying information should be removed from the paper except for a cover page.
The formatting of the paper has to follow the guidelines of the Journal of Business Ethics.
To be considered for the special issue on "Responsible Leadership" full papers need to be submitted by April 02, 2010.
Full papers should be submitted electronically (word-file) to email@example.com.
