Migrating to a different country can be difficult, especially when attempting to start a business. Africans who migrate to the UK manage to negotiate and forge relationships among themselves and with their host society, form self-employment relationships, and unveil socio-cultural patterns and identity formation. This title explains why people leave Africa, what they encounter, their interactions with the host community, their strategies of inclusion, and perceived exclusions from mainstream society. It discusses social changes and policies African countries are adopting to negotiate the immigration and emigration processes of the diaspora communities. Illustrates Black African entrepreneurship as a vehicle for self-employment relationships, socio-cultural patterns and identity formation, and covers gender biases, forced vs. voluntary migration, and diaspora entrepreneurship. For policymakers, entrepreneurs and other business professionals, consultants, academics, and researchers.
