Rethinking development contributions: African returnees’ entrepreneurship approaches


 

Abstract:

This PhD project examines the entrepreneurship practices of African return migrants to understand their contributions to local development. The focus on their business activities offers a unique theoretical inquiry into the link between returnee entrepreneurship and development. Taking a transnational entrepreneurship approach applied to a new generation of African return migrants, the project uses qualitative case studies to analyse their developmental ambitions, strategies, and practices in today’s globalized and interconnected world. The projects thereby aims to generate new perspectives and theory on the developmental role and contributions of return migrants in an African context, in this case Ghana.
