Empowerment, Opportunity, Necessity: Immigrant Entrepreneurship in a Globalized World


Empowerment, Opportunity, Necessity: Immigrant Entrepreneurship in a Globalized World

January 11-12, 2024. Warsaw and online (Zoom)

Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences

Immigrant entrepreneurship, including ethnic entrepreneurship, is an increasingly important topic in migration studies and minority studies. It concerns the adaptation of immigrants in the labour market, a key aspect of immigrants’ adjustment to life in their new place of residence.  The topic has become particularly important in the face of recent crises, such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine: entrepreneurship can be seen as both an opportunity and a challenge in times of economic and political turmoil. We invite submissions on immigrant entrepreneurship in times of crises and in times of economic prosperity.

The conference aim is to bring together representatives of various disciplines of the broader social sciences: we are interested in the research perspective of sociology, economics, management, political science, psychology, history and other fields. We are interested in papers presenting theoretical considerations and results of empirical research. We invite authors who conduct qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods research, studies of media discourses, policies, and legal frameworks of business. We are interested in immigrant entrepreneurship in Europe and other parts of the world.

Conference Topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Success Stories of Immigrant Entrepreneurs
  2. Overcoming Challenges: Legal and Economic Perspectives
  3. Innovation and Cultural Diversity in Entrepreneurship
  4. The Role of Technology in Immigrant-led Businesses
  5. Access to Funding and Resources for Immigrant Entrepreneurs
  6. Sustainable Practices and Social Entrepreneurship

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 10 December 2023. Please specify if you wish to participate online or in Warsaw.

Participation in the conference is free of charge. There is no conference fee.
