Inhalt: Base-of-the-pyramid (BoP) research talks about market based solutions for the development of marginalized sections of informal market economies. However, absence of sound theoretical foundations is obstructing development of the discourse. Relatively mature, (sustainable) supply chain management ((S)SCM) literature has many analogous concepts to the BoP research. The integration of the two research streams can not only provide BoP with the much needed theoretical infrastructure, but can also open new research frontiers for the (S)SCM research.

The extent dissertation is an effort to integrate the BoP and (S)SCM research. The results of the systematic literature review highlight the theoretical commonalities among the two research streams and led to development of certain frameworks based upon the results of contingency analysis. The empirical part of the dissertation tries to explore the (S)SCM practices significantly affecting the purchasing performance of indigenous BoP firms in a B2B context. Argumentation of the resource dependency theory is employed to get deeper insights into the empirical results of the study.
