Guest Editors
Anne Miroux and Lourdes Casanova

There are few studies that examine whether outward foreign direct investment (FDI) from emerging markets (EMs) and transnational corporations (TNCs) from these countries promote innovation and accelerate development around the globe. With the support from experts in the Emerging Markets Institute (EMI) at Cornell University, this call intends to contribute to scholarly literature on TNCs, FDI, institutional innovation, growth and development, and seeks qualified manuscripts for a global readership, including policy makers, multinational managers, business analysts and academia. The proposed special issue aims at deepening the research and analysis of the opportunities and challenges that transnational corporations’ face, and the implications of Emerging Market Multinationals (eMNCs)’ expansion for global growth and business environment. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • The role eMNCs play in global growth and development
  • eMNCs in global and regional value chains
  • The role of the government in eMNCs’ international expansion
  • Perspectives from China, India, Africa and Latin America
  • eMNCs’ Investment strategies

Transnational Corporations Review (TNCR) is an academic journal promoted by the Transnational Corporations Council of Studies (TNCCS), headquartered in Ottawa, Canada. Since 2009, the TNCR has served as one of the few outlets in international business and political economy that encourages and publishes cooperative efforts among academics, policy makers and industry practitioners. Published quarterly, the TNCR is an international journal that places a particular emphasis on the presence and interactions of eMNCs within the global economy, while providing a unique balance of both macro and micro issues.

Guided by double-blind review process, the TNCR seeks to publish high-quality articles, including empirical and theoretical analysis as well as literature review, which contribute to better understand the role of foreign investments in economic growth, and development. Specifically, the TNCR encourages opinion articles and research notes, and motivates recent PhDs to submit their doctoral synopsis
