Linking Immigrant Concentration to TDE Activity.

Osa-Godwin Osaghae, Thomas M. Cooney

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This Book is a pioneering study, exploring the relationship between immigrant enclaves (IE) and transnational diaspora entrepreneurship (TDE) in the unique context of a Nigerian immigrant community in Dublin. The study reviews the relevant literature in the field of immigrant entrepreneurship, adopting principles from the most significant studies in order to develop a conceptual model for understanding the relationship between an IE and TDE. The participants were all Irish citizens of Nigerian origin, resident in the Dublin suburb of Blanchardstown and either engaged in TDE activity or proposing to initiate a TDE enterprise involving commercial interaction between Ireland and Nigeria in the near future. The analysis and interpretation of the literature and data set produced a unique contribution to the fields of IE and TDE studies.
