Scope of the Book:
In the recent years, millions of people have been displaced due to the civil war in their countries. With the passage of time and continuation of internal turmoil in the conflict areas, asylum seekers and migrants no longer seem to be considering going back to their country. Therefore, the process of integration into the new host society is a priority for the asylum seekers and migrants. Actually social inclusion of asylum seekers and migrants has become a significant matter for governments internationally. Many research studies show that employment for young people facilitates their social inclusion. In such a way, immigrant youth will be given the opportunity to become exemplary members of the host society and feel part of the wider community. Among various methods to facilitate social inclusion/cohesion, social entrepreneurship is probably one of the most effective ones.
One of the important results of social entrepreneurship is that it contributes to the employment of young people with fewer opportunities. In many ways social entrepreneurship enables asylum seekers and migrants to contribute to the society they are living in. It also prevents culture shock and instead supports cultural harmony in the society, understanding of mutual social responsibilities and the development of local labour market and services.
Lack of social inclusion programmes, on the other hand, fosters racist or xenophobic discourses in the host community and increases social exclusion of the asylum seekers and migrants with dire consequences for those persons and the society they are living in.
Therefore, in this book project, we aim to cover studies in the field of social inclusion through social entrepreneurship. The project will be implemented with co-operation from international project partners to transfer expertise and exchange good practices. This project is also appropriate to the aims and mission of the European Union and such increased co-operative actions between universities, civil society organisations and private sector will be of benefit to disadvantaged young people.
