Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Research Cluster : International Enterprise: Business & Society
This newly formed research cluster is particularly concerned with exploring changing enterprise and organisational forms across divergent institutional settings.
This studentship is located within the research cluster focussed upon ‘International Enterprise, Business and Society’. Emergence is the term used by Padget and Powell (2012) to capture the evolution and emergence of new organisational forms and markets. Organisations and markets are connected by people through networking, a process that enables transformation, permutations and combinations of resources, knowledge and factors through which new organisational forms and ways of organising generate (Padget and Powell, 2012: 2-3). This studentship will be dedicated to exploring different organisational forms, the behaviour of institutional actors, and the transformation of organisation through enterprising activities, in different spaces and in different times.
This project will explore the relationship between emergence and hybrid organisational forms in different cultural and institutional settings (e.g. Russia, China, Africa).
