PACIBER 2009 Annual Meeting
July 3-6 2009
Queenstown, New Zealand
Call For Papers - Involving Indigenous and Minority Peoples in Internationalization
Submission deadline is March 31., 2009.
The PACIBER Research Committee encourages the submission of original research that
analyzes any of the issues associated with “Involving Minority Peoples in Internationalization” in the Asia Pacific Region. All Asia-Pacific countries have "minorities", which form separate languages or cultural groups.
The minorities include both indigenous (first nation) people and minority groups within a larger
cultural or social majority. The theme of this year’s PACIBER research stream is the positive and negative impact of foreign direct investment on "minorities". The theme includes the economic, social, political and cultural impact of foreign firms, encompassing topics such as tourism, micro-finance, entrepreneurship, natural resource exploitation, employment and gender. Papers that address the impact of FDI on native title (land rights), culture and social practices will be particularly welcome.
Up to eight papers will be presented at the annual PACIBER meeting in Queenstown, New Zealand, July 3 - 6, 2009. Some travel support is available.
All papers will be reviewed by the PACIBER Research Committee. Please submit an abstract of your paper via email to the PACIBER Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org ) by March 31, 2009.
