The latest (2022) version of the AIB UKI book series is now out. Titled "Megatrends in International Business" and edited by Spiros Batas, Olli Kuivalainen and Rudolf R. Sinkovics, the book emphasizes on how the main trends in international business can shape and help propel the field forward.
Covering a variety of topics, from artificial intelligence to the belt and road initiative, the book enhances our understanding of how and why technology, funding, policies, managerial decisions, cultural differences, and changes in subsidiaries can affect businesses that operate in foreign markets.

We have recently published the history of the AIB UKI chapter on the website. The material for this History was gathered by Stephen Young, his untimely death however prevented him from completing the work.
This history is dedicated to the memory of Stephen Young. Work to complete the History was undertaken by Frank McDonald, Heinz Josef Tüselmann and Pavlos Dimitratos. Invaluable information to enable the work to be completed was provided by Peter Buckley.
Elena Karali, Asma Mitchla and Ida Rauto Dessai of the Department of International Business, Leeds University Business School, provided instrumental help in preparing this document. Thanks to Sarah Blake for help with preparing the document.
The AIB UKI history can also be downloaded from here.
