The Emergence of Southern Multinationals and their Impact on Europe

Traditionally Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has flowed from advanced developed economies into developed and developing countries. More recently a new trend has emerged in the pattern of FDI. Outward bound FDI from emerging economies has begun to increase significantly and has been growing at a faster pace than FDI from the advanced developed world. The Action seeks to develop and sustain an international research network to study the impact of this new phenomenon for Europe and its stakeholdersThe goal of the network is to implement a research agenda that will be of value to all stakeholders and policy makers in Europe as they grapple with this facet of globalisation. The main objectives of this Action are to develop an enhanced capacity for scholarly analysis of the emergence of Southern Multinationals to establish and test empirically their impact on Europe and its stakeholders; to assess existing EU wide and country policies in relation to this phenomenon and make policy recommendations. More Information can be obtained by contacting the Chair of the Action Prof. Louis BRENNANA full description of the Action can be found hereRapporteur : Dr Jana GASPARIKOVA Science Officer :Ms Rossella MAGLI Administrative Officer :Mr Leo GUILFOYLELouis Brennan (Ireland) - MC ChairMarjan Svetlicic - Vice ChairCarlos Cunha (Portugal) - SecretaryRuth Rios-Morales (Switzerland) - Dissemination Strategy CoordinatorDaniel Van Den Bulcke (Belgium) - Training School CoordinatorAndreas Nolke (Germany) - Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) Coordinator.  There are four Working Groups reflecting the critical areas of enquiry relating to Southern Multinationals and their impact on Europe were formed with the following coordinators: WG1Integrated Data - Christian Milelli (France) and Francois Hay (France)WG2 Drivers and Motivators and Strategies - Jag Srai (UK)WG3 Impacts on Europe - Lucia Piscitello (Itlay) and Per Heum (Norway)WG4 Policy Implications - Andreas Nolke (Germany) and Daniel Diaz-Fuentes (Spain)Members of Working Group 4
