Języki publikacji
MNCs, perceived from the institutional and resource dependency perspective, are subject to various pressures that trigger their strategies and operations on a global scale. One of the important forces inclining MNCs to diversify their strategies and structures on the global scale is the impact from host countries. The strength of this impact on MNCs behaviour is discussed here both theoretically and empirically. The article also shows how MNCs actually behave on the Polish market and how and to what extent this host environment influences MNCs operations. The analysis is based on the empirical data derived from the author's research, which was carried out in 35 production subsidiaries of MNCs in 2006-2007. (original abstract)
