Message from Conference host:
Welcome to AIB-UK 2013. As the call for papers notes, the challenge in the post crisis world is how business, government and academia come together to foster conditions for sustainable economic development. Understanding this requires an examination of the fundamental principles of international business, including location decisions, returns to multinationality and knowledge flows, as well as topical issues surrounding csr, links between government and business, and sustainability.
We hope the conference will discuss these issues, in the excellent setting of aston conference centre, and a first class dinner hosted by our namesakes at villa park. I look forward to welcoming you on 21st March.
Prof Nigel Driffield
