Measuring the political context of entrepreneurship in the developing world: Lessons from the state fragility literature

Joshua K. Ault, Andrew Spicer

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

While international entrepreneurship has begun to study the world's least-developed countries, it has not yet reached a consensus about how to design studies that capture the wide variety of political systems across these national contexts. We propose that extensive work on "state fragility" contributes to advancing this global research agenda.
