SHORT ABSTRACT

 

Most of the early work on cross-cultural differences in consumer behavior applied explanations based on Hofstede’s (1981) cultural dimensions, most particularly on differences in individualism/collectivism ratings across countries. This roundtable will focus on the discussion of new frameworks that are transforming culture-based research beyond the broad and descriptive emphasis on individualism/collectivism.  In particular, this roundtable’s objective is to discuss research that deals with cultural processes: definitions, cognitive mechanisms, process instruments, and tacit measures.
