Part of the The Urban Book Series book series (UBS)

Abstract

In this chapter, we review the current state of knowledge on migrant entrepreneurship including various conceptual frameworks about entrepreneurial activities and urban development in the global cities in which migrant entrepreneurship occurs. We also provide a comparative analysis of migrant entrepreneurship in six global cities (Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Toronto, Johannesburg, and Athens), illustrating how this phenomenon varies across racial/ethnic groups and across urban economic, social, and political contexts. Lastly, we discuss the impact of migrant businesses and key challenges facing migrant entrepreneurs along with knowledge gaps in the field and suggestions for future research.
