Abstract

This chapter explains how some refugees have economically contributed to their host countries. It highlights the barriers faced when refugees start businesses, thereby deterring them from entering the business sector. This chapter describes how an individual left his home country and arrived in Australia as a refugee and later became an entrepreneur through the use of social capital. The methodology used in analyzing this case was based on the incorporation of the individual as a co-author of the paper to bring an insider perspective to the discussion, since outsiders will never be able to grasp the complexities faced by refugee entrepreneurs.
