Recently the reshoring and insourcing decisions are widely discussed within the operations management as well as international business communities. Within this study we clarify the distinct patterns of these two phenomena and develop a unified, theory-based framework on their joint and respective drivers. Based on a review of the business press in the United States and Germany the current coverage of movements along this framework is presented and demonstrates that a large part of the potential reshoring and/or insourcing varieties currently remain obscure. Based on these findings we present a theory-based agenda for future research in this emergent field.
