Paper development workshop for the Entrepreneurship & Regional Development Journal

Scholars in the field of entrepreneurship and development were invited to a paper workshop for submissions to a Special Issue of the Journal Entrepreneurship & Regional Development. The theme of the issue was “Entrepreneuring and poverty at the margins: here, there and everywhere”.

About the Special Issue “Entrepreneuring and poverty at the margins: here, there and everywhere”

The Special Issue aims to build an understanding about the experience of poverty and the processes and practices of entrepreneurs operating at the margins of societies. Poverty is not something that is carried by the individual exclusively but rather a social phenomenon experienced by many people, together, in a particular context. See the original call for full information.

The Special Issue is edited by:

  • Natalia Vershinina, Audencia, France
  • Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Audencia, France
  • Sarah Jack, Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden
  • Allan Discua Cruz, Lancaster University Management School, UK


Call for submissions (No longer accepting submissions)

Submissions are welcome from scholars in the field of entrepreneurship and beyond on new ways of seeing poverty, not as a stigmatising label applied to situations, regions and society but as a situated context. Multi and interdisciplinary approaches to understand poverty in relation to entrepreneurship are welcome: from social psychological perspectives, phenomenological studies, philosophical and anthropological perspectives to help the field better address poverty as lived experience involving individuals, families, communities and regions/cities. Particularly welcome are responses that generate new ways of viewing, researching and theorising poverty that is more contextually informed and socially embedded. As well as submissions that are informed by critical entrepreneurship theories, family business and family entrepreneurship, migration scholarship, as well as feminist theories and gender studies, including post-colonial debates and studies originating from Global South as well as Global North. See the original call for possible themes for contributions.

Paper development workshop

On May 30, scholars interested in submitting to the Special Issue were invited to an in-person paper development workshop (PDW) at the Stockholm School of Economics. The workshop was hosted by the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) and the House of Innovation (HOI).
