The role of other orientation on the relationship between institutional distance and expatriate adjustment
Drawing upon institutional and self-categorization theories, this manuscript argues that the institutional distance between home country and host country groups exerts influence over expatriate adjustment. In addition, the individual difference of other orientation plays both a direct role on the adjustment process as well as a moderating role on the relationship between institutional distance and adjustment. Propositions regarding these relationships are formed for future empirical test, and implications and directions for future research are provided.
