Abstract While there is a well-established tradition in international business and marketing to study the ‘motives’ of international joint ventures, no attempt has been made to systematically define and operationalise the term ‘motive’. The paper argues that studies of IJV motives suffer from an imperfect understanding of the key term ‘motive’. The lack of definition is a critical oversight and significant constraint in IJV research effort. This paper is an initial attempt to address this limitation. Based on the review of marketing literature, it defines ‘motives’ by using the resource based view of the firm.
