    The Missing Entrepreneurs 2017 - Policies for Inclusive Entrepreneurship

    The Missing Entrepreneurs 2017 is the fourth edition in a series of publications that examine how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation by encouraging business start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented social groups. It shows that there is substantial potential to combat unemployment and stimulate social inclusion by promoting entrepreneurship in populations such as women, youth, seniors, the unemployed, and migrants, if the specific problems they face can be addressed and if entrepreneurship policies are opened up to all.

    This edition contains thematic policy discussion chapters on the quality of self-employment, including new forms of self-employment such as dependent and false self-employment, and on the potential of self-employment as an adjustment mechanism in major firm restructuring. Each thematic chapter discusses current policy issues and challenges, and makes recommendations for policy makers. Finally, country profiles highlight recent trends in entrepreneurship by the social target groups, key policy challenges and recent policy actions in each of the 28 EU Member States.
