Potentieel en realisatie van ondernemerschap bij vluchtelingen
The integration of refugees in Western societies is often perceived as problematic. By promoting refugee entrepreneurship, both their integration in society can be aided and domestic entrepreneurship can be boosted. Refugee entrepreneurship has been an underdeveloped domain of scientific research though. Most of the time, scholarly attention was devoted to ethnic entrepreneurship or to the employment positions in general of refugees. Also policy attention has been limited. There clearly exists a potential for refugee entrepreneurship in Belgium, but this is too seldom realized in practice. Male refugees who have been selfemployed in the past and whose family is active as an entrepreneur, have a higher appetite for entrepreneurship. We also found that refugee entrepreneurs earn less than other entrepreneurs. This income difference can be found in each sector.
