Journal for Family Business Strategy – Special Issue “Family Business and Regional Development”

Call for Paper


In 2014 the Journal of Family Business Strategy will publish a special issue entitled “Family Business and Regional Development”. Among the guest editors is Rodrigo Basco, scholarship holder of the WIFU foundation. We would like to cordially invite you to consider participating in the special issue. The submission deadline is September 15th 2014.

The aim of this special issue is to examine the role of family firms in regional economic environments and to enhance our understanding of the ways family firms may (or may not) contribute to regional economic growth and development. This special issue will consider qualitative and quantitative empirical studies, case studies, and more theoretical and conceptual research contributions. The cross-disciplinary nature of current research on family firms suggests that a new understanding of the role family firms play in regional economic development will likely come from a melding of theory and research across fields like regional economics, regional studies, entrepreneurship, geography, business, management, political science, psychology, and sociology.
