Book Description

Entrepreneurship in context has been described as the third wave in entrepreneurship research. Accordingly, specific socio-economic, political, market and institutional contexts are key to fostering, enabling and enacting entrepreneurial activity and behaviours. These contexts shape everyday entrepreneurship experiences.

This book is based on the premise that how gender is articulated within the entrepreneurial debate has to acknowledge context. However, context is not a construct which only applies to those economies and situations which differ from the presumed norm of Western developed nations. Adopting a more critical appraisal of how context is positioned within current theorising around gender and entrepreneurial behaviours offers potential to progress debate whilst acknowledging that competing and contrasting contextual influences require clearer recognition. This book therefore has the potential to unearth credible and robust approaches to further examining contextualisation and women entrepreneurship that advances new insights.

By exploring and examining how contextual influences shape women’s entrepreneurship, this book challenges the assumption that women entrepreneurship is the same throughout the world. It will be of value to researchers, academics, and students with an interest in entrepreneurship, political economy, economics, and public policy.
