Beyond Categorization? A Review of Identity Research in Intercultural Management and Expatriation Studies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article is to address how alternative scientific paradigms can contribute to a richer understanding of the notion of identity in the field of intercultural management and expatriation studies. More
specifically the author addresses the question of how alternative paradigms allow to account for increasingly complex and volatile individual identity narratives in situations of professional mobility such as expatriation. With a growing intensity and reach of workers’ international mobility, boundaries such as home and host countries get blurred. And in times where international talent is scarce, employers will need to deepen their knowledge on how individuals and potential employees make meaning of their mobility, beyond the organisational setting, how they narrate themselves whilst pursuing international professional pathways.
