Discussion of De-Globalization @AOM

12 07 2017

AS: Deglobalization will be the subject of two interesting events at the forthcoming Academy of Management conference in Atlanta.

The 2016 Brexit referendum on UK’s withdrawal from the European Union and Donald Trump’s election as US president have added momentum to the growing anti-globalization movement that started following the 2008 global financial crisis.  This is true not only in the UK and US; but also in many developed countries where the middle class have suffered from lost jobs and reduced wages which they believe were caused by globalization.  How should management scholars respond to this development?  Are any changes needed in existing practices of management education and research to reflect this emerging trend?  Why or why not?  Toward what goal?

You are cordially invited to attend two events at the AOM Meeting to discuss the implications of anti-globalization for the management field and participate in small roundtable groups to develop a research agenda for follow-up collaboration.
