Abstract

This conceptual paper explores the cultural dimensions of corporate political activity (CPA). Concerned that prior research into firms' political actions has been insensitive to culture and its impact on corporate strategising, national culture is introduced as an explanatory factor behind managers' political objectives and the strategies they prefer to use in pursuit of those objectives. The paper adds to existing research by unpacking and examining corporate political action at a deeper, more complex, human level. Understanding that corporate political strategies are affected by culture enables politically-active managers to anticipate, respond to and act on strategies pursued by competitor firms from other countries.
