Over the last two decades there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of organisations that have internationalised their operations, assisted and encouraged to do so by the removal of national protectionist trade policies, deregulation of international fiscal and monetary markets, and rapid advances in communications and distribution channels. The international movement of labour that has been concomitant with such expansion of international business has meant that issues associated with the management of human resources across international borders have become of increasing importance to international human resource managers and academics. The research on which this paper is based examines the pedagogy and practice of IHRM in Australia and shares knowledge about critical developments within this field. It reports international human resource management (IHRM) scholars' and practitioners' understanding of the major issues for teaching and practice in IHRM and elucidates current and future issues challenging this field.
