SMEs in a Globalised World

SMEs in a Globalised World

Survival and Growth Strategies on Europe’s Geographical Periphery

Edited by Helena Lenihan, Bernadette Andreosso-O’Callaghan and Mark Hart

This insightful book shows how small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from some of the traditionally less dynamic peripheral economies of the ‘old’ EU – namely Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain – have responded to the twin challenges of globalisation and industrial restructuring. Through a series of unique case studies the contributing authors discuss how these economies, and in particular the SME sector, can be transformed.
