The Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (IMES) at the University
of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, has set up the IMMENT LISTSERVER for

ENTREPRENEURSHIP.

The listserver is part of a larger research programme sponsored by the
European Commission, the European Science Foundation and the Dutch
Foundation for Scientific Research NWO. The programme revolves around
the following research questions: How has immigrant entrepreneurship evolved
in the last two decades and what are the structural determinants of the
observed trends in the selected countries? What kind of profiles of
informal economic activities do the immigrant entrepreneurs display? How are
they
related to activities in the mainstream economy on the one hand, and, on
the other, to the regulatory framework (in particular the welfare state) and
the enforcement regime? What significance has to be attributed to these
(semi-)informal economic activities in terms of combating social
exclusion and socio-economic incorporation?

The Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (IMES) at the University
of Amsterdam (Dr Jan Rath) co-ordinates the programme in collaboration with
the Delft University of Technology (Dr Robert Kloosterman) and the Erasmus
University of Rotterdam (Prof. Godfried Engbersen). Other participating
institutes are the Liverpool John Moores University (England, Dr Giles
Barrett), the Centre for Social Innovation (Austria, Mag. Regina
Haberfellner), the University of Poitiers (France, Prof. Emmanuel Ma
Mung), the Fondazione Bignaschi (Italy, Dr Mauro Magatti), the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem (Israel, Dr Eran Razin), the Technical University of
Berlin
(Germany, Dr Czarina Wilpert), the South Danish University (Danmark, Dr
Jan Hjarno), and the Catholic University Leuven (Belgium, Dr Ching Lin
Pang).

Amongst other things a series of international conferences will be
organised. More detailed information can be obtained from the internet
