There has been a growing interest in expatriate interactions with host nationals in International Human Resource Management. This literature review provides an overview of this emerging area, outlining research pertaining to the antecedents and outcomes on three different levels of analysis: the individual, the dyadic, and the organizational level. Most of the research has been done on the individual level of analysis, examining the impact of contact with host nationals on expatriate adjustment and performance. Several research gaps and avenues for future research are identified, for example the importance of clearly delineating which aspect of expatriate-local interactions is investigated: the frequency, depth, or breadth of the contact. Furthermore, the paper aims to guide the practitioner to better support expatriate-local interactions within their organization so as to maximize the potential benefits of this contact.
