This definitive Research Handbook explores the restructuring strategies of globalised firms, bringing together a wide range of topics from export exit, subsidiary divestment and market re-entry to relocation, offshoring and backshoring.
 
Contributors from diverse fields including marketing, entrepreneurship, strategic management and economics provide a multi-dimensional methodological approach to the analysis of exit. They consider exit both in terms of export markets and foreign investment, and in terms of subsequent re-entry in the same markets as well as relocation to other countries. Taking a global view, chapters, which take the shape of literature reviews, conceptual works and qualitative and quantitative studies, represent diverse regions and country contexts, such as China, the EU, Norway, Russia and the US. Providing an overview of international divestments and their associated phenomena of relocation and re-entry, the book concludes by presenting avenues for further research.
 
Drawing together conceptual works, case studies, quantitative studies, bibliometric analysis and meta-analysis, this timely Research Handbook will be a valuable resource for researchers and students of international business. Its use of empirical case studies will also be valuable for business practitioners interested in international divestment and export exit.
Critical Acclaim
‘IB scholars often focus on firms’ initial forays overseas, but pay less attention to what happens when these forays are unsuccessful. The seventeen chapters in this excellent volume consider why and how firms stop exporting, divest their overseas subsidiaries, relocate their overseas operations, and/or re-enter markets, and should be essential reading for anyone interested in the dynamics of international business.’
– Roger Strange, University of Sussex Business School, UK
