Book Description

Drawing on a range of European cases, this edited volume analyses the offshoring and outsourcing of foreign companies, with a focus on territorial embeddedness.

The book opens by developing a theoretical framework and then presents a range of international case studies, exploring the experiences of the service hub cities of Dublin, Bratislava, Budapest, Prague and Cracow. Attention is also given to internal and external determinants of embeddedness, with chapters on the employee perspective, the Fintech industry, corporate social responsibility and the role of universities.

This volume will be of interest to advanced students and researchers in regional economics, economic geography, innovation studies, industrial economics, European economics and international business.
