Economic globalisation has fundamentally transformed the commercial and political environment in which international business operates. This unit describes the complex ways in which globalisation impacts upon the regulation of international business at the national and international levels. It assesses the significance of national governments and distinctive varieties of capitalism as well as the evolving frameworks for global business governance. It provides an introduction to the key factors and institutions in the regulation of international business and serves as a foundation for the unit BFA202 Government Regulation of International Business.
