This comprehensive Research Handbook provides insights into entrepreneurship across a range of country contexts, migration corridors and national policies to provide a collection of conceptual, empirical and policy-focused findings addressing transnational diaspora entrepreneurship. Chapters illustrate the phenomenon, considering what it is, how it works and how it is regulated.

Contributions from top scholars in the field underline the view that transnational diaspora entrepreneurship is a socio-cultural as well as an economic phenomenon of increasing worldwide relevance in shifting economic, technological and political landscapes. Conceptual and methodological developments are presented from multiple perspectives, embedding unique country- and- context-based empirical research. Split into four key thematic sections, this Research Handbook first provides readers with an overview of the topic, before delving into country-specific case studies, migration corridors and their impacts, and then finally exploring the policy implications.

Entrepreneurship scholars and students—particularly those with a focus on global entrepreneurship, diasporas, migration and international entrepreneurship—will find this a timely and important read. It will also be of value to administrators of entrepreneurial and migration programs, business developers, investment and startup agencies, diaspora organisations, NGOs and think-tanks.

Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook mirrors the transnational innovation phenomenon that it studies: The tome shares data and perspectives crafted by scholars from around the world, whose ideas have been honed through transnational experience and interaction, resulting in novel and impactful outcomes. The compilation of this foundational knowledge in one place is game-changing.’
– Dr. Liesl Riddle, Dean, The George Washington University, US

‘This book offers a comprehensive analysis of transnational diaspora entrepreneurship, its impact on the economies of the home and host countries and its challenges. It is a great Handbook for international entrepreneurship scholars, but also for the governments, international institutions and other organizations engaged in the promotion of transnational activities of diaspora entrepreneurs.’
– Elie Chrysostome, Ivey Business School, Canada

‘The Research Handbook on Transnational Disapora Entrepreneurship presents a comprehensive and contemporary view of one of the most pressing issues facing our global economies: immigration and its potential economic and entrepreneurial implications. The Handbook effectively asks how various ecosystems might be adapting (or effectively adapt, by implicit comparison) to the growing numbers of immigrants and return migrants globally. Never before has such a diverse and extensive compendium focusing on this important subject been assembled – and as an active researcher, I find it a particular pleasure to see such high quality and comprehensive material in one convenient location.’
– Benson Honig, McMaster University, Canada
