This faculty development workshop is designed to equip international business educators with an in-depth understanding of how institutions shape the strategies that firms employ and the actions that managers take in developing and emerging countries. Explore how weak institutions create particular challenges, such as corruption, political risk, regulatory obstacles, social divisions, and civil strife - and the ways firms and managers can cope with these issues. Examine how non-governmental organizations (NGOs), social entrepreneurs, diaspora communities, and multilateral organizations strive to strengthen institutions in these markets and how these new institutional forms affect firms and managers.Link: http://business.gwu.edu/CIBER/FDIB
