International human resource management (IHRM) is a key area of research in the sphere of international business and management.

Today, it is a vibrant and diverse discipline which boasts a large and active body of researchers across the globe.

This volume examines cutting-edge themes, with the input of contributions from both established and emerging scholars. The Routledge Companion to International Human Resource Management gives a state-of-the-art overview of the key themes, topics and debates in the discipline, with valuable insights into directions for future research.

Drawing on a large and respected international contributor base and with its focus on mature and emerging markets, this book is an essential resource for researchers, students and IHRM professionals alike.
