New  research  on  economic  groups 

The  existence,  ubiquity  and  remarkable  dynamics  of  business  groups  in   emerging  markets  has  stimulated  a  large  amount  of  research,  which  has  investigated  the   reasons  for  the  emergence  of  groups,  their  ownership  structure,  their  differentiation   and  vertical  integration  patterns,  and  their  economic  performance. 

However,  there  is   still  more  limited  evidence  about  business  groups’  strategies,  i.e.  how  groups  organize   their  business  activities  and  what  makes  them  more   (or  less)  successful  than   independent  enterprises.  This  Special  Issue  collects  new  research  on  economic  groups   network  and  internationalization  strategies. The articles in the special issues are available here.
