Abstract

Purpose
The apparent onset of an era of anti-globalization creates significant challenges for international business practice, research and education. This paper discusses the implication of these challenges for international business scholarship.

Design/methodology/approach
Essay with critical assessment of the literature

Findings
I identify and analyze two sets of concerns of the anti-globalization movement: the unequal distribution of the benefits of globalization and emergent constraints on national sovereignty. On that basis offer suggestions how international business scholars may contribute to addressing these challenges through research, teaching and public engagement.

Practical implications
Businesses need to understand the economic and institutional arguments motivating the anti-globalization movement, and to address them within their scope of activity.

Originality/value
This paper offers a pathway for international business scholars to contribute to discourses on globalization and anti-globalization.
