Calling for Research Participants!

The primary purpose of this research study is to investigate how refugees can participate in society and the economy through entrepreneurship in New Zealand.

The resettlement of refugees in host countries is becoming increasingly challenging. And refugees are confronted with additional barriers to resettlement and participation in social and economic activities.


Finding solutions to the challenges associated with resettling refugees is a matter of increased urgency. Therefore, strengthening the livelihood and economic self-reliance of refugees is a significant priority. Encouraging and increasing the level of refugees’ participation in economic activities through entrepreneurship is considered a viable option, combined with other governmental resettlement programmes.

The research project proposes to develop a comprehensive understanding of refugee entrepreneurship in Aotearoa New Zealand. This understanding will provide the premise upon which refugee entrepreneurship can be incorporated into the resettlement strategy being implemented.
