Executive summary - Beating the odds: Supporting youth on the move

Publications

Executive Summary of our latest report Beating the odds: Supporting youth on the move to become successful entrepreneurs. 

Entrepreneurship can promote self-reliance and help youth on the move overcome barriers to integrating into society. It offers them an opportunity for meaningful work, helping them leadtheir lives with dignity and give back to their communities.

Our research suggests that, on average, they are more likely to start businesses than their native-born peers, and their entrepreneurial success brings several economic and social benefits to their host communities.

Our report Beating the odds: Supporting youth on the move to become successful entrepreneurs explores how entrepreneurship support organisations (ESOs) and other stakeholders can help youth on the move (refugees and other migrants and displaced youth) fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams and ambitions —creating decent work, driving inclusive economic growth, strengthening communities, and transforming prospects and livelihoods.
