A Relational Conception of Firm Internationalization

A Relational Conception of Firm Internationalization

(p.155) 8 A Relational Conception of Firm Internationalization
The Relational Economy

Harald Bathelt

Johannes Glückler

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes the processes through which knowledge-intensive services internationalize and create permanent dispersed locations in relative proximity to their clients. It reconsiders the theories of the internationalization of the firm and criticizes conventional approaches for their implicit atomism. It focuses on the shortcomings of conventional approaches to the study of firm internalization by developing a relational conceptualization of the internalization process. Also, it performs an empirical test of this alternative conception of market entry.

Keywords:   knowledge-intensive services, internationalization, empirical test, market entry, relational conceptualization
