The Philosophy of Turning Points: A Case of De-Internationalization

What is it about?

De-internationalization, as an area that undeniably adds to the variance and complexity of the IB field, has received little consideration from IB scholars. To stimulate and advance research on de-internationalization, this paper introduces and discusses the concept of turning points from the ontological, epistemological, and methodological perspectives, applying it to the de-internationalization phenomenon to exemplify its deployment.

Why is it important?

The paper provides a brief review of de-internationalization phenomenon; introduces the concept of turning point from ontological, epistemological, and methodological perspectives, linking it to de-internationalization phenomenon; concludes with implications for the IB field, encouraging a dynamic scholarly conversation on the adoption of the concept of turning point in the IB research.
