  • Self-employment activities concerning women and minorities: their success or failure in relation to social citizenship policies (SEM), Final Report


The TSER project focused on the evaluation of success or failure of self-employment projects of women and minorities in relation to social citizenship policies. It consists of theoretically sampled biographical case studies (Total N=252) in six European countries (Sweden, Denmark, UK, Germany, Italy, Greece). Research teams from the universities of Umeaa, Aalborg, Greenwich, Frankfurt, Cosenza worked on their respective national case studies. The Greek national case study has been conducted by three diverse teams with respect to the problems of native Greek women (Women's Research Centre Diotima, Athens), Pontian immigrants (University of Crete), immigrants from Africa and Albania (University of Dundee, UK). Nationally mixed research groups have worked out comparisons between transnationally clustered groups: native women, migrant women and migrant men with/ without policy participation. The project coordinator was the Johann Wolfgang Goethe - University of Frankfurt/Main.
