Episode 3 - Migration and Migrant Entrepreneurship

26/11/20 // brought to you by Nicholas Clark

Narrated by Nicholas Clark of Social Economy Europe, this episode takes a deep dive into the issues surrounding migration and which stem from the migration crisis in 2015.
 
It begins with a longer introduction to set the scene of the issue and we hear from three important individuals from three important organisations:
Eleonora Lamio of DIESIS Network, who has been working at the EMEN project (European Migrant Entrepreneurship Network)
 
Nikos Chrysogelos founder of WELCOMMON Hostel in Athens (a social economy enterprise in social tourism empowering people at risk of exclusion and refugees) and
 
Marie Faye of DIOMCOOP, a truly inspiring story of migrant cooperative entrepreneurship in Barcelona.
 
Together we look at the social economy organisations enabling the inclusion and integration of migrants through social entrepreneurship, social enterprise and cooperation. The episode argues that the solution to the migration issue is not to close boarders, but instead to change the outlook of society to build more inclusive accepting policies.
