Corporate Strategies under International Terrorism and Adversity raises key issues facing international business and management in an era of global uncertainty.

Gabriele Suder’s second edited book about the security-business nexus analyses and evaluates the main strategic and operational responses to global commerce and management. The contributors explore the complexities and linkages of firms, industries, organizational structures, international relations, markets and terrorism networks. They investigate these networks and offer insight into the strategic behavior of international firms. The authors likewise examine corporate management and performance issues that encompass internationalization and location decisions, global supply chain management and brand portfolio challenges. The book concludes by outlining future challenges and with a discussion of the crucial issues that remain open and that will be shaped by the geopolitical context and the way business adapts its corporate strategies.

Designed to offer key tools for risk assessment and management in this field, this important book will be invaluable to risk strategists, CEOs of international firms, credit risk analysts and academics with an interest in international business and/or risk management.
‘The true nature of the threat remains poorly understood, and previously little research has been done on it. This book is an important contribution for concerned practitioners and scholars.’
