Abstract

In the late twentieth century, the international joint venture (IJV) became an increasingly important yet unstable organisational form of international business. Based on insights provided by the Mid-Med Bank of Malta during the period 1975-1979, this article argues that the unanticipated termination of IJVs has endogeneity due to the bounded reliability of their partners’ decision makers, developed from the formative stage and influenced by inter/intra organisational relationships along the evolution of the IJVs. The findings thus contribute to our understanding of the nature of bounded reliability, contractual governance and the bargaining process.
