The aim of the MDE Workshop 2017 on Refugee Entrepreneurship was to offer a platform for international researchers, policy makers and practitioners to develop an understanding of characteristics, potentials, obstacles and mechanisms of refugee entrepreneurship and develop policy and practical implications. Refugees are in such a complex psychological and societal situation that understanding this topic requires interdisciplinary approach.
Therefore, this workshop welcomed abstracts from any kind of fields including entrepreneurship, migration studies, sociology, psychology, economics and geography. Submission were abstracts of both conceptual and empirical papers. To enable interdisciplinary discussions, this workshop was also open as to the methodological approach so that both quantitative and qualitative studies were considered.
