Abstract: In parallel to the recognition of the increasing influence of strategic management (SM) over societies and its growing commitment to the purpose of global development, European and US authors agree that a major contemporanelus challenge is to connect SM to (social) practices and practitioners. The Euro-American literature argues that strategists and research in Latin America need a practical approach vis-à-vis the institutional voids that both challenge theories from advanced economies and generate development problems to the world, but they fail to recognize theories that challenge their position and knowledge(s) and practices undertaken by local researchers. In this panel we put together researchers from Brazil and other parts of the world to address this gap in order to enable Latin America to play a strategic role in global development.
