Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The past decade has been characterized by rapid economic growth in emerging markets, resulting in global shifts in economic influence, trade and investment patterns. Increasingly, however, critical analyses have been casting doubt on social and environmental sustainability of this growth: inequality is increasing in and between countries, growth in many countries is resource-driven, and in Africa for instance there has been doubt about the pro-poor impact of economic growth. At the same time, ideological shifts following the end of the Cold War and practical necessities have seen a greater attention in scholarly and policymaking circles on entrepreneurship as an engine of growth.

In light of the above, Economies is issuing a call for papers on the topic of entrepreneurship and economic growth in emerging economies. Papers that take a theoretical and/or empirical view on this relationship are welcome. Specifically, we would like to encourage submissions that deal with

  • Structural transformation and entrepreneurship.
  • Green growth and entrepreneurship.
  • The growth dividend from promoting women entrepreneurship.
  • Women entrepreneurs and pro-poor growth.
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship in emerging economies.
  • The impact of economic growth on entrepreneurship.
  • State-owned enterprises and entrepreneurship in emerging country growth.
  • Comparisons and decompositions of entrepreneurship and growth in emerging countries.
  • Social entrepreneurship as a potential catalyst for economic growth.
  • Entrepreneurship and inequality.
  • Migrant entrepreneurs’ role in growth and poverty reduction in emerging economies.
  • Growth policies, growth diagnostics and entrepreneurship.
