The creation and legitimation of new industries

By Romeo V. Turcan.

This phenomenon - creation and legitimation of new industries - has received scant attention in academic research and has been misinterpreted and inefficiently practiced by policy makers and development organizations. The lecture will proceed by exploring the identified above gap, grounding the discussion in a typology of legitimation. Then the emergent process model of new industry creation and legitimation is presented and discussed. A reflection on phenomenon under investigation and its impact on policy will conclude the lecture.

This Book a Researcher lecture is part of the Festival of Research that takes place between April 25 and May 1.

By Norman M. Fraser

Drawing on a host of illustrative anecdotes and participant observations, Fraser examines the life cycle of each of the different business types, highlighting key threats and critical success factors for each. He analyses the tension between the need to innovate to differentiate versus the challenge of legitimizing newness.

Re-defining International Entrepreneurship: In search for its domain

What is the domain of research of International Entrepreneurship? How is International Entrepreneurship defined? How much do we actually borrow from International Business to inform International Entrepreneurship? Are there any other/more disciplines to borrow from? Shall we revisit the intersection?

The process of theory building: Issues, challenges and contributions 

By Romeo V. Turcan

How do we advance our research fields? Via theory building as one way of many would be the answer. But how do we actually do it? How do we conduct research in an emerging field, in a field that is at the intersection of multiple theoretical frameworks, or on a phenomenon that is not convenient to research? How do we go from pure description where most of research actually stops in a qualitative enquiry to develop propositions, advance middle range theories, and go beyond a substantive theory?
