ANNUAL McGILL CONFERENCE
Following the tradition established by the inaugural conference held at McGill University (Montreal) in 1998, the annual McGill IE Conference brings together academic scholars, practitioners and policy makers to discuss the potent forces and influences, consequent changes and the dominant pattern(s) of emerging developments in IE.
The annual conference rotates from McGill every second year, and has been held in (e.g.) Finland, Italy, Scotland, Denmark, Chile, UK, Ireland and UAE. The 2018 conference was held in Halmstad University, Sweden.
The Journal of International Entrepreneurship fills the need for a journal dedicated to international issues in the context of entrepreneurship. It offers an outlet for high quality research addressing the opportunities and challenges intrinsic to the field.
