Governance, entrepreneurship and inclusive development

Africa is rising and increasingly seen as a potential market by economic actors from Africa and the rest of the world. The main objective of this Collaborative Research Group will be to explore the interrelationship between governance, entrepreneurship and inclusive development. Emphasis will be on developing programmes and research projects that will aid our understanding of the roles, challenges and strategies of the different economic stakeholders and businesses that operate in the “economic space” on the continent, and the implications of these for (economic) governance for inclusive development. These will be researched at the entrepreneurial level (the business model) and in terms of securing a conducive business environment that allows entrepreneurs to flourish.
