Palgrave Studies in Global Human Capital Management

Call for Papers:

Human Capital and Innovation: Examining the Role of Globalisation is the second book in the Palgrave Studies in Global Human Capital Management series. The aim of the book is to explore how human capital contributes to innovation in multinational organisations within the context of inter-connected globalised world.

Globalisation refers to growing economic dependence among countries as reflected in the increasing cross-border flows of goods and services, know-how and people. It has led to slicing of value chain, spatial division and disaggregation of work across the globe. Scholars argue that multinational organisations are best placed to exploit the benefits offered by globalisation. In the early phases of globalisation, multinational organisations outsourced production to low cost locations in developing countries to stay ahead in the competition. However, in recent years, multinational organisations have started to setup offshore research and development centres and acquiring local firms in developing countries to exploit available skills and talent to find new ways to innovate. There are enough examples of developing countries, such as India and China, that have develop competitive advantage based on their human capital.

We invite contributions in this emerging area of study with examples from a range of industries and countries.

Submission deadline: 31 March 2016
Publication date: Autumn 2016
