A Study on the Entry Strategies Related With Risk Management of Turkish Companies to the Emerging Economies
Duygu Anil Keskin, Ibrahim Anil, Cem Canel, Rebecca Porterfield

Several studies have measured the performance of the entry modes utilizing different theories. Studies indicate that when the different strategies are evaluated separately, they may not provide sufficient explanation. Therefore, a strategy that integrates various theories would be more effective than a single theory in order to explain companies’ entry modes. One of these new approaches by Dunning argues that various theories would be integrated by accepting that ownership advantages would be assessed as resource dependency theory, location advantages would be assessed as institutional theory and internalization advantages would be assessed as transaction cost theory. This Eclectic approach is used in this study in terms of the interactions of three different approaches. In this study, entry strategies of Turkish companies to the Russia Federation, Balkan Countries and Central Asia are explained, compared and discussed in terms of these theories. The aim of this study is to contribute to the relevant literature by understanding which entry strategy would explain the behavior of Turkish companies that invested in other developing countries.
