    The Return of the Native: Globalization and the Adaptive Responses of Transmigrants.Vivien Chan Wai-Wan & Chan Kwok-Bun - 2010 - World Futures 66 (6):398-434.
    The intent of this study is to examine the adaptive responses of Hong Kong transmigrants and their transnational and transcultural practices in terms of their consequent behavioral and emotional patterns. Their transnational practices and relative adaptability can be explained with Robert Merton's (1957) “strain theory.” More specifically, the study aims to identify, describe, and explain the variety of behavioral patterns and modes of emotional manifestations of adaptation of Hong Kong returnees, and to identify their individual and collective strategies of adaptation (...)

    Cultural Hybridization: A Third Way Between Divergence and Convergence.Peter J. Peverelli & Chan Kwok-Bun - 2010 - World Futures 66 (3-4):219-242.
    The convergence-divergence debate on whether business cultures are growing alike or not has become an important part of studies of the influence of national cultures on the operation of firms. This article intends to formulate a third way, a third model, by creating synergy between the model of cultural hybridization and Social Integration Theory. We contend that cultural hybridization takes place in multicultural joint ventures but this process happens unevenly and in different parts of the venture. The new model, itself (...)

    Transnationalism and its Personal and Social Consequences for Chinese Transmigrants.Chan Kwok-Bun - 2008 - World Futures 64 (3):187 – 221.
    In this essay, I investigate the origins of Chinese migrant transnationalism and its personal and social consequences. I propose a theoretical perspective that turns on a synthesis that I shall call “cultural functionalism,” a synthesis that attempts to reconcile functionalism and postmodernism. My argument is that Chinese transmigrants overcome modern alienation through a two-way approach: first, a strong participation in and full commitment to community development and connectivity within the Chinese diaspora ; and, second, a religio-cultural renaissance—both being conceived of (...)
