“Most of Europe’s population growth comes from immigrants. Immigrant entrepreneurship is poorly understood, and Nahikari Irastorza has blazed a trail for Spain and the Basque Country with this fascinating study.” Jonathan Levie, Reader, Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow “This work presents a unique analysis to explain the differential success of Spanish immigrant entrepreneurs by employing the intriguing concept of the liability of foreignness, which alone warrants a careful reading of this book.” Don DeVoretz, Professor of Economics, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia "This is a much-welcomed book for all those interested in understanding the fast pace of immigration to Spain. Quite unusual in European literature, it addresses migrant entrepreneurship through an economist’s approach, resorting to a combination of quantitative data and qualitative survey. The result is a comprehensive look at contemporary Spanish migration, a critical appraisal of national policies’ shortcomings and a diagnosis for challenging some of migration studies’ previous analyses." Margarida Marques, New University of Lisbon

Immigrant Self-Employment in Spain

De toename van wereldmigratie zorgt ervoor dat economen, beleidsmakers en academici steeds meer aandacht besteden aan immigranten en ondernemerschap. Zijn immigranten meer ondernemend dan autochtone Spanjaarden? Hoe succesvol zijn migrantenondernemers ten opzichte van ondernemers in land van herkomst?Born Entrepreneurs? bestudeert hoe het allochtoon-zijn een immigrant beïnvloedt om succesvol te gaan ondernemen. Ook komen de mogelijke economische en sociale voordelen van zelfstandige arbeid en de unieke factoren die een rol spelen bij het zogenoemde etnische en immigrante ondernemerschap aan de orde.
