Abstract

The present publication aims to carry out a systematic description and analysis of the trajectories of internationalization that are being followed by the various types of firms which are involved in the European car industry (manufacturers, suppliers and dealers). A companion book treats of American and Asian automobile car industry with the same perpective (Freyssenet M., Shimizu K., Volpato G. eds, Globalization or regionalization of American and Asian car industry?). An other book (Carillo J., Lung Y., van Tulder R. eds, Cars…Carriers of Regionalism) focusses on the trajectories that are being followed in the different spaces (in the industrialized and emerging countries, in the regional groupings) - and it tests the hypothesis of the spaces’ diversity and divergence. These studies identify and characterize the different processes of periodic re-heterogenization, and the conditions that are necessary if firms, and spaces, are to be successful. Moreover, within this perspective, they will be particularly keen to analyze the steps that are being taken in order that firms’ and spaces’ trajectories can be adjusted and hybridized - actions which in all probability will require considerable strategic and organizational inventiveness.
