Abstract [en]

This paper explores the unique case of an MNC working with the host government and local actors during a period of turbulent change in an emerging market. While the literature overlooks non-business strategies of MNCs and suggests they avoid uncertainty, there is growing evidence of this cross-sector collaboration to achieve collective goods. Drawing on archival and interview data, we show how the Swedish dairy equipment manufacturer DeLaval collaborated with China’s government and local business and nonbusiness actors following the 2008 melamine milk scandal. The findings shed light on prerequisites for MNCs to collaborate, their motivations to engage, and the role of turbulent change in these collaborations. This study contributes to the continuing discussion of MNCs’ social role in emerging markets.
