This paper aims to contribute to the new stream of literature dealing with knowledge in family firms by analyzing the role of organizational knowledge in the internationalization of this type of firm. First, the study will try to emphasize the specificity of family firms as for double-loop learning, knowledge sharing, knowledge tacitness and emergence of internationalization strategy. Then, the influence of these variables on internationalization organizational knowledge and finally on firms' internationalization degree will be assessed.
