Research

Over the last 3 years the main focus of my research was on international marketing in the fields of Country of Origin Effects/consumer ethnocentrism and strategy development. The first topic the emphasis was in the development of a new measurement tools for consumer ethnocentrism; a meta-analytical study of consumer ethnocentrism with new explanatory variables; how product/country typicality influences explicit and implicit Country of origin effects and the signalling effects of local brands to a country's image. The second area of research tries to expand and test Mintzberg's work on emerging strategies in international business. It examines the nesting of marketing level strategies into the corporate level strategy and analyses deviations from that profiles (antecedents and consequences). It also develops ideal profiles of the conditions that favor different types of strategies and how deviations from these profiles affect business performance. In addition, there were some projects on blind market engagement and the factors that encourage/inhibit it; the factors that the influence boycotting of MNEs (the focus was on surrogate boycotts where the MNE was used to put pressure on a government about a contentious issue)

Research Topics
