Abstract: In modern economies, interaction between companies is crucial to corporations’ success. With businesses becoming increasingly interdependent, communication confronts new importance being an essential part of inter-organizational interaction. Instead of merely supporting processes like e. g. price negotiation, it progressively takes up a critical role in those business-to-business (btb)-relationships that not only consist of transaction. The aim of this paper is to describe and analyze the relevance and functions of communication regarding btb-­relationships. For this purpose, btb-­interaction and relationships are initially systematized. Following, I will discuss how different relationship types affect the role of inter­-organizational communication. Findings from an exploratory study as well as extensive literature review regarding organizational communication and inter-organizational research will be incorporated. As a result, approaches will be elaborated on how organizational communication research can take up this new and challenging topic. The paper concludes in a new approach to btb-communication based on structuration theory ideas.

Abstract: In June 2008, as the global financial crisis emerged, Rupert Murdoch’s flagship national daily newspaper, The Australian, re-launched its online business section incorporating a partnership with the recently-acquired Wall Street Journal. The venture, supported by significant investment at a time when most newspapers were cutting costs, captured the Janus-faced nature of contemporary newspaper publishing. Over the past 40 years business became a central feature of editorial content, leveraging additional high-value readers and advertising revenue. Business journalism has been celebratory of ‘success’, rich individuals and enterprise, a trend coinciding with a growth in corporate public affairs management and leading to criticisms that too much business journalism was ‘churnalism’. In contrast the same environment damaged newspapers’ business model, resulting in the disappearance of hundreds of journalism jobs. The focus on short-term financial gains, were disabling newspapers editorially. This paper explores the extent that the crisis disrupted the ways in which Australian newspaper journalism represented business, and how the relationship between business and journalism was construed.

Abstract: Existing literature on Chinese bourgeois nationalism in inter-war Singapore (1919-1941) mostly explains its limits from the perspective of political mobilization. In light of the concept of social embeddedness, this paper examines Singapore Chinese nationalism by analyzing the business competition between different Chinese sub-ethnic groups (the Hokkien and Teochew vis-à-vis the Cantonese). The theoretical framework owes its insights from both Mark Granovetter’s social embeddedness and Karl Polanyi’s concern about macro-institutional embeddedness. More concretely, Singapore Chinese nationalist leaders were the Hokkien and Teochew business elites, whose economic interests were embedded in the British power in the global and regional economy, such as the regulation of the global rubber market and the dominance of piece goods trade in Asia. These British interests were however challenged by both the 1930s Great Depression and Japan’s business expansion. Chinese nationalist rhetoric was employed by pro-British Chinese business elites to promote their products and to boycott Japanese goods. Given that the advance of Japanese goods in Southeast Asia was facilitated by the transnational Cantonese business networks, the business-led nationalist movements therefore targeted not only the Japanese but also the Cantonese. This research concludes the importance of examining embedded enterprise in the study of Chinese bourgeois nationalism.

Abstract: During the last decade there has been an increase in the role of firms in the organisation and practice of UK diplomacy. UK Diplomacy is no longer (if it ever was) a hierarchically structured state activity but is rather a network system involving state as well as non-state actors - especially firms. In the UK, for example, firms are once again institutionally embedded within the diplomatic system as a result of recent government reforms. This paper highlights these developments and considers some of the political implications for UK diplomatic practice of moving 'beyond the hegemony of the state.'
