We are excited to announce that we are publishing a first edition of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Cross-Cultural Management, edited by Audra I Mockaitis and Lena Zander. This is an opportunity for our community of scholars to develop a key reference on the field in its entirety.
We are seeking contributions on various topics in the field of cross-cultural management.
The Encyclopedia will contain entries describing key theories, concepts, methods, and empirical contributions in the field of Cross-Cultural Management.

Longer entries discussing major works, paradigms, theories, etc., should not exceed 4000 words.
The target audiences for the Encyclopedia are researchers, academics, students, policymakers, and practitioners. The Encyclopedia will provide easily accessible entries that will enable users to understand key concepts and contributions in the field. Thus, entries should be written with an academic audience in mind, in a reader-friendly, accessible way with a maximum of 10 references only.
If you are interested in contributing, please respond to this call by email with a brief description of your proposed entry.

With kind regards from the Editors Audra I Mockaitis (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Lena Zander (email@example.com).
Each entry will reflect the views of an expert and authoritative author, and will be formatted as follows:
- Start the entry with a short definition and overview of the term/theory/concept based on research (What does it mean?).
- The body of the text should provide a motivation for the importance of the topic and how it has been applied in contemporary research (Why is it important? How has it evolved? What are the debates/controversies? Perhaps there is less research on the topic today, but it has informed the field historically in important ways).
- Where relevant, include a short description of current trends and developments (Where are we heading?).
- Suggested cross references (Provide at least two to three related terms for the purposes of cross referencing).
- Suggested keywords for indexing purposes (These may also include key authors in the field if the topic is attributable to them directly).
CURRENT TOPICS (contributors should suggest additional topics to these):
Migration Culture: A Comparative Perspective
Our new study on migration with a focus on countries that have a long or impactful history of migration has been published!
I am pleased to have collaborated with a group of authors of a new book, Migration Culture: A Comparative Perspective. We analyze the emergence of migration cultures at a societal level. Why are some societies more mobile and characterized by more deeply-rooted migration traditions than others? We suggest that environmental and institutional factors, and the evolution of societal-level values throughout certain periods in a country’s history, in combination, explain why migration in these societies becomes enmeshed with culture and in itself becomes a value.

Making a difference through global leadership
I am pleased to be a part of a recently published book, the Research Handbook of Global Leadership: Making a Difference (Lena Zander, Ed.). The book’s publication is timely, as leadership in these uncertain times becomes ever more important. Many international organizations are and will be facing numerous challenges and will need to develop new strategies, skills and ways to overcome them. More than ever before true leadership will need to include skills to navigate an uncertain landscape, while simultaneously demonstrating compassion, inclusivity, social consciousness, and responsibility across an even greater number of boundaries and contexts.
I have contributed to three chapters in this book. In Chapter 4, Action intent: Getting closer to leadership behavior in 22 countries, 23 authors examine how leaders make the choices they do in a study of 1,868 leaders worldwide. In Chapter 9, The new Millennial global leaders: What a difference a generation makes!, Butler, Sutton, Mockaitis and Zander examine inter-generational workplace relations, the characteristics of millennial generation employees and the future of work and global leadership facing this generation. In Chapter 24, A world of learning: The future of management education based on academia and practitioner universitas, Zettinig, Zander, Zander and Mockaitis discuss the future of management education, especially the way current and future leaders are “trained” to acquire standardized skill sets and offer some ideas for enhancing the relevance of leadership learning.
All of the book’s 25 chapters, by renowned scholars in the field, add to the global leadership domain by offering novel insights into “making a difference.”
