Metropolis Conference Sydney 2018 — Immigrant & Refugee Entrepreneurship

International Metropolis Conference, 29 October-2 November, Sydney, Australia

Jan Rath will be speaking on migrant entrepreneurship in the panel on ‘Immigrant and Refugee Entrepreneurship: Neither Paradox nor Panacea’, Thursday November 1, 2018, 09:00-10:30. He will offer a critique of the tendency of many experts to reduce entrepreneurship to a social-cultural phenomenon and a plea to include more structural factors such as market development and regulation in the analyses of the phenomenon. His presentation will, moreover, briefly explore the structural factors and multiple actors that promote and hinder entrepreneurial trajectories drawing on examples of ethnic precincts and migrant small businesses.
