We live in a globally interconnected but economically divided world where internationally linked businesses can play a significant role in helping and/or obstructing the development of impoverished countries. Through a series of case studies, this volume examines what can be learned, both positively and critically, from the experiences of selected internationally connected firms in Nigeria, Uganda, Ghana, Vietnam, Guyana, and the Nunavik region of northern Canada. This book begins with a set of reflections on the strategies firms might adopt so that they develop both their own assets as well as those of the areas in which they operate. A team of more than two dozen researchers from the developed and developing countries conducted the research on which the essays on this and subsequent volumes are based. Dr Frederick Bird from Concordia University in Montreal directed the overall research project. IDA MUTOIGO is Team Leader for East and Southern Africa for the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee ROBERT NIXON is a Partner in Universalia Management Group BILL BUENAR PUPLAMPU is Senior Lecturer at the School of Administration, University of Ghana SAMUEL SEJJAAKA is a Senior Lecturer at the Makerere University Business School, Uganda GAIL WHITEMAN is Assistant Professor of Business-Society Management, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, the Netherlands
