This special issue focuses drawing insights from Asian management and entrepreneurship and using them to consider implications for European theory and practice.

Contributions to this special issue are encouraged from scholars juxtaposing theoretical positions (theories of Asian management versus Asian management theory), juxtaposing practice or developing European/universalist theory after engagement with Asian management and entrepreneurial phenomena (Full version).
