Abstract

The article examines ethnic entrepreneurship in Lombardy. More in particular, drawing from the data and information of the Ismu Foundation dataset, it first shows the quantitative consistence and the main peculiarities of the phenomenon. Then it investigates the latest trends, interpreting them in the light of foreigners’ possession of cognitive and normative resources of the host society. As it is discussed, such perspective, that focuses on the ways in which social structures affect economic action, offers an interesting key to read the decrease of ethnic entrepreneurship in the actual economic conjuncture.
