The John H. Dunning Fellows for 2018-2019 Announced

International Business and Strategy is pleased to announce the John H. Dunning Visiting Fellows for the 2018/19 academic year, hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business at the Henley Business School, University of Reading.

The new fellows are:
Helena Barnard


Helena Barnard is Professor at the Gordon Institute of Business Science of the University of Pretoria in South Africa. Her research interests are in how knowledge (and with it technology, organisational practices, and innovation) moves between more and less developed countries, particularly in Africa. She researches both organisational mechanisms (notably emerging multinationals and internet-enabled businesses) and individual mechanisms such as scientific collaborations, doctoral training, and the diaspora. Her research has appeared in the Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Research Policy, Journal of World Business and other journals. She is the 2017-2020 Academy of International Business Vice President for Administration, an area editor for the newly launched Journal of International Business Policy, and the deputy editor in charge of Africa for the journal Management and Organizational Review.

Björn Jindra


Björn Jindra is Associate Professor for International Business at the Department of International Economics and Management at Copenhagen Business School (DK). He had prior positions at the University of Bremen and the Halle Institute for Economic Research (DE). He is an honorary research fellow at the Centre for Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators in South Africa. His primary research areas are internationalization of R&D, innovation in multinational firms as well as foreign direct investment and technological catching-up. He published on these and related topics in outlets such as the Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of World Business, International Business Review, Journal of International Management, Regional Studies, and World Development.

These visiting fellowships were originally established with the support of Christine Dunning, in memory of her late husband.

The objective is to provide fellow(s) with an opportunity to develop papers for publication by building on and generating new and innovative cross-disciplinary conceptually driven empirical research in collaboration with faculty in the Centre.

Visiting fellows are invited to interact with faculty and doctoral students in the Dunning Centre, and more widely across Henley Business School, and to offer a guest lecture during their visit.
