Business and Politics (BAP) solicits articles within the broad area of the interaction between firms and political actors. Two specific areas are of particular interest to the journal. The first concerns the use of non-market corporate strategy. These efforts include internal organizational design decisions as well as external strategies. Internal organizational design refers to management structure, sourcing decisions, and transnational organization with respect to the firm's non-market environment. External strategies include legal tactics, testimony, lobbying and other means to influence policymakers at all levels of government and international institutions as an adjunct to market strategies of the firm. A second area of interest involves efforts by policymakers to influence firm behavior through regulatory, legal, financial, and other government instruments. We do not favor any particular methodologies or approaches, but emphasize analytical rigor and novel empirical analysis. The journal is particularly interested in submissions focusing on different regions of the world, cross-regional studies, and interdisciplinary work. It strongly encourages submissions from business, political science, law, economics, and public policy.
