A quick internet search will reveal a number of high-profile FELO cases. Regrettably, much of the popular media coverage focuses on FELO appointments where the relationship quickly soured. This media coverage may create the (false) impression that there are no successful longterm FELO affiliations.
In contrast to the media coverage, academic research investigates and analyses the FELO phenomenon systematically. Newspaper reports lack the depth and rigour of a systematic academic investigation.
FELO research establishes why some FELO appointments fail, why other appointments last, how cultural distance is bridged, and what can be gained from these cross-cultural workplace affiliations.
Are you a FELO? Do you know a FELO?
