Enterprising Women in Transition Economies Hardback
Edited by Dr Friederike Welter, Dr Nina Isakova
Entrepreneurship is a key element in the development of market based economies and one of the potential drivers of change in countries that are in the process of transformation to market based systems.
This book describes and critically assesses the nature and extent of female entrepreneurship in European economies that until 1990 were operating under central planning. At the core of the book are 7 country based chapters which provide an overview of the development of entrepreneurship and small firms since 1990, including a review of the institutional and policy context; an assessment of the role of women within the society during the socialist period; and any major changes afterwards.
Each chapter also includes a thematic section (each one addressing a different issue) based on unique empirical data drawn from original research.
