Ethnic Entrepreneurship as an Acculturation Strategy. Biographical Analyses of Immigrant Entrepreneurs in Six European Countries

    Project Details


    The aim of this project is to discover to which degree structures within a given society affect the migrants' opportunities in a new society, and how this influences their choice of acculturation strategy. The empirical part of this project will be based on biographical narrative interviews with migrants from six European countries. On the basis of these interviews, a comparative analysis is to be conducted. Comparing the interviews with ethnic entrepreneurs from six countries with their differences and similarities should give a good picture and an understanding of what lies behind the ethnic entrepreneur strategy and how these migrants experience their own situation. Within the samples I will pay special attention to the aspects of gender, ethnicity and subjective resources. PhD project. (Trine Lund Thomsen)
