Research interests

Samir did macro- and micro-economic research to study Russian firms and their investment and business activities in emerging economies. His work was designed to explore variations across emerging economies, industries, and Russian firms and to analyse how these variations were reflected in the firms’ investment and business operations. For this project, Samir developed an ‘interdisciplinary theory’ with the incorporation of the home and host country economic and institutional factors, firm-specific determinants, and the roles of state-business and state-state relations. His research involved fieldwork and interviews with the executive members of the leading Russian firms and senior government officials and experts from Russia and host countries between June and September 2017. Samir’s work not only examined economic issues but also the impacts of various political factors on the Russian firms' investment decisions and analysed these firms' roles in politics as corporate players. His analytical framework could also be used to investigate other large emerging economy firms.
