New book from Maria Koinova (University of Warwick) "Diaspora Entrepreneurs and Contested States"

This book develops a novel understanding of four types of diaspora entrepreneurs based on their linkages to de facto states and different global contexts, and a theory about their interactions with host-land foreign policies, homeland governments, parties, non-state actors, critical events, and limited global influences.

Events 

2021 Gothenburg International Research Conference on Sustainable Development Goal 8

The 2021 Gothenburg International Research Conference on Sustainable Development Goal 8 will take place in a blended form (physically and virtually) 26-27 August. International and Swedish researchers will gather to discuss Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8 in the 2030 Agenda, to promote sustainable and inclusive economic growth, employment and decent work for all.

As part of the International Association of Universities (IAU) Cluster on Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development, the University of Gothenburg, has taken a lead specifically on Sustainable Development Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. Within the cluster each SDG has its lead university, resulting in a global network of universities. The purpose of the SDG 8 Initiative at University of Gothenburg is to mobilise academic work and policy interaction in local and global contexts, together with eight satellite universities globally. 
At the beginning of this year, a number of thematic reviews and discussion papers were initiated and these papers will form the basis for research and policy interaction as well as collaboration with other stakeholders.

Please find more information on the programme and the registration here.
