Papers are invited for this special issue of Small Enterprise Research devoted to indigenous enterprise and small business.
Special Issue Editor: Professor Dennis Foley, University of Newcastle, Australia.
Indigenous communities or 'first nations' can be found around the world from the Inuit, Ainu and Sami people in Canada, Japan and Norway, to the Aboriginal, Maori and San people of Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Although these communities have many differences in language, culture and appearance, they all share a common characteristic of being minorities in their own land. Most Indigenous communities have suffered from dispossession of their traditional lands, plus economic and social marginalization. Economic self-determination for these communities can be achieved via entrepreneurship and small enterprise activities. This special issue examines the state of research, policy and practice in the field of Indigenous enterprise and small business.
