Abstract: We develop the idea that an emerging economy firm can develop institutional capabilities at home that can be transferred to institutionally proximate emerging economies. Drawing upon the organizational capabilities, internationalization process, and institutional work literatures, we define institutional capabilities as heuristics, skills, and routines that facilitate the execution of institutional strategies in host countries. Since institutional capabilities gestate over a long period of time, we narrate a longitudinal case study of a property developer operating at the blurred boundaries between state and private enterprise in two Southeast Asian countries.
