Please note that submissions for this special issue will open in January 2022

According to UNCTAD (2019) and Global Asian Profile Corporate Divestment Study (2019) there is growing need to look towards the policies of the developing countries with respect to Divestment. FDI areas have been studied but this aspect of FDI has been ignored. With developing and emerging economies taking centre stage in the Direct Investment climate, perspectives on Divestment will emerge as new dimension. Specifically, it will address the following questions:

  1. Are developing and emerging economies prepared for the Divestment policies?
  2. Will the Divestment pattern followed in Developed countries be replicated by developing and emerging economies?
  3. What are issues of concern for the economies if Divestment FDI policies are introduced?
  4. What are the empirical evidences for/against the FDI Divestment as a rigorous economic policy?
  5. What role multilateral organizations will play in convincing economies to improve their divestment approach?
