Policies for Promoting Entrepreneurship as a Means of Increasing Social Inclusion

In: The Palgrave Handbook of Minority Entrepreneurship

    (University of Sussex Business School)


The aim of this chapter is to show how an understanding of the policymaking process might lead to better formulation and outcomes of policies to support the social inclusion of minority and disadvantaged groups entrepreneurship. The chapter reviews the mixed evidence to date in relation to both enterprise policies more broadly and inclusive policies in particular and it proposes an alternative conceptualisation of the policy process that makes evident the need to take context more seriously. The chapter offers some pointers about the ways in which the needs and interests of minority entrepreneurs can be connected more clearly to the governmental agendas and the policy formulation that takes place at the governmental level.
