Bureaucrats in International Business: A Review of Five Decades of Research on State-Owned MNEs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Rygh reviews 134 studies related to state-owned multinational enterprises (SOMNEs) published over five decades. The reviewed studies demonstrate effects of state ownership on international business decisions such as foreign market entry mode and host-country location. However, effects are mixed and context seems to play a key role. The review also demonstrates that we still know little about important issues such as SOMNEs’ international performance and the effects SOMNEs have on home and host countries.
