Migration, enterprise and value creation
26 January 2022
Migrants and refugees often struggle to access labour markets, especially during the early stages of their settlement. Consequently, they pursue alternative entrepreneurial routes to facilitate their adjustment. This session by Professor Peter Lugosi (Deputy Director of the Centre for Business, Society and Global Challenges) explores:
a) how diverse migrants engage in enterprises;
b) how their business and organisational practises intersect with ‘identity work’; and
c) how they and stakeholders are embroiled in practises of value creation.
