Closer, Stronger, and Brighter: Bringing IB and IHRM together through the lens of Sustainable Development Goals
International business (IB) and international human resource management (IHRM), the two fields of studies with a shared interest in multinational enterprises (MNEs), yet often criticised for the lack of dialogue and collaboration beneficial to extending the knowledge in these fields. At the same time, both IB and IHRM have expanded into the international development area, for example, there is growing interest in the role of MNEs in promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this presentation, Dr. Fang Lee Cooke aims to address some of the critiques, challenge existing assumptions, and provide examples of research avenues that may critically examine the role of MNEs in promoting SDGs through their HRM practices from the perspective of developing countries.
