The Integration of Subsidiary Political Activities in Multinational Corporations
Just as the competitive activities of MNC subsidiaries exhibit differentiation as well as integration, so might MNC political activities. This paper combines the literatures on international business-government interactions and on multinational corporations, with resource dependence theory as a foundation. We develop and test hypotheses on factors that might influence the degree to which subsidiary political activities are integrated with affiliated organizations. We find that subsidiary strategic integration and the economic integration of the host country significantly influence integration of subsidiary political activities.© 2002 JIBS.
