Call for Special Issue Papers: Indigenizing Entrepreneurship

Guest Editor: Phil Glennie, Academica Group

Indigenizing entrepreneurship represents a significant opportunity for Indigenous Peoples to build vibrant Indigenous-led economies that support sustainable economic development and well-being. It is a means by which communities can assert their inherent rights to design, develop, and maintain Indigenous-centric political, economic, and social systems and institutions to revitalize their cultures, languages, values, and traditions. As such, Indigenizing entrepreneurship must be informed by decolonized perspectives that are grounded in the social, cultural, environmental, and economic values of Indigenous communities.

IIPJ welcomes research and policy submissions that contribute to a shared understanding of Indigenous entrepreneurship and community well-being. Possible papers and presentations can include, but are not limited to, those that address the following questions:

  • What is Indigenous entrepreneurship? What makes entrepreneurship Indigenous?
  • How can entrepreneurship help address the challenges and opportunities faced by Indigenous Peoples?
  • How can Indigenous entrepreneurship spur Indigenous social and economic development?
  • How can entrepreneurship contribute to a better present and future for Indigenous youth? Indigenous women?
  • How might we better understand the ways that different Indigenous Peoples and nations approach entrepreneurship?
  • What community-based supports are most effective at fulfilling the goals of Indigenous entrepreneurship?
  • What approaches are best suited to fostering Indigenous entrepreneurship in a rural or urban setting?
  • Submissions should be submitted for review no later than March 27, 2019
