Emerging Ethnic Economies at Times of Crisis: socio-economic and spatial dimensions of migrants' entrepreneurship in Athens

Hellenic Observatory research seminar

Date: Tuesday 28 January 2014
Time: 6-7.30pm 
Venue:  Cañada Blanch Room (COW 1.11), Cowdray House
Speaker: Dr Yannis Frangopoulos, Dr Panos Hatziprokopiou

Migrant entrepreneurship remains a relatively marginal topic within migration studies in Greece. Yet immigrants’ involvement in self-employment and independent economic activity has grown rather fast and has been linked to the dynamics of immigrants’ settlement and the formation of ethnic communities at a local level, especially in Athens. 

Yannis Frangopoulos and Panos Hatziprokopiou, Department of Spatial Planning and Development, School of Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
