14 oct How Migrant Entrepreneurship could shape Good Long-Term Economic Growth of Europe

Umesh Mukhi, Founding Director, Sustainable Leadership Initiative,

The migrant crisis has been one of the most prominent issues faced by European Union. I think its crucial to find change-makers who are trying to create significant social impact by training migrants to become competitive work force for EU. I had a chance to meet Yannick Le Guern & Laura Petrache and ask them few questions about their initiative MIGRANT INTEGRATION LAB which aims to resolve such complex issue. I hope readers would be able to draw some inspiration and insights to follow their path.

  • The project seems to be very unique, can you share with us about what were the key motivators to pursue Migrant Lab?

Yes, indeed it actually is and not seems to be . As I encountered some of the issues that migrants are encountering now days and after an experience in Syrian ground, I wanted to build together with Yannick the co-founder of MIGRANT INTEGRATION LAB, a global European device permitting the sustainable integration of migrants and ethnic minorities. For us a welcoming culture is one that contributes by helping migrants, newcomers and their families overcome obstacles in all areas of life, while also providing business start-up assistance and targeted employment. This is why we facilitate and foster economic and social integration of migrants by supporting them in the development of new business initiatives.

The original goal that led to the creation of the World Committee, stemmed from the observation that the lifelong learning concept had evolved in the 1990s from a recommendation to a necessity, owing to the advent of the Knowledge Society, in which the sharing of knowledge and skills are a key factor.

CMA is an international NGO in active partnership with UNESCO. They all share a strong determination to contribute to a harmonious development of the lifelong learning sector.

Article of Laura Johnson – Expert on Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

 

Social Entrepreneurship// Innovation// Europe// Policy Making// Citizenship// Community Leader//

“Empowering Social Entrepreneurs for Innovation and for a sustainable civil society with Yannick Le Guern “

Today, a culture of entrepreneurship that encourages and supports the five skills -questioning, observing, networking, experimenting and associative thinking -is increasingly powerful.
Unfortunately, a natural pattern in the evolution of the French enterprises makes it very difficult for established companies to do this. In the earliest stages of any new business, the most important thing is to come up with a product or service that people will pay for; and this is the stage when the five discovery skills are so important.
Going forward, ‘entrepreneurial management techniques’ will be increasingly important to business success. One of innovative entrepreneurs, who launched ventures that offer a unique value proposition is Yannick Le Guern.

L’INTRODUCTION DE NOUVELLES MÉTHODES DE MANAGEMENT PAR LES PROCESSUS DANS L’ACTION PUBLIQUE RÉGALIENNE

Résumé

Notre thèse vise à découvrir et proposer les pistes clés d’un modèle entrepreneurial permettant d’aider les acteurs de la mise en œuvre de politiques publiques à agir plus efficacement et de manière plus efficiente.

Ce modèle est basé sur l’analyse de processus, la participation d’acteur dans les changements, et la construction de représentations collectives, entrepreneuriale et porteuses de sens. L’originalité du modèle vient de sa dimension maïeutique qui permet d’éviter les résistances traditionnelles aux changements, en modifiant les manières de voir, de penser et d’agir. Ce modèle entrepreneurial et systémique de mise en oeuvre de politiques publiques a été conçu, comme une alternative au modèle de mise en œuvre bureaucratique).

Nous soulignons les résultats, implications et limites de ces deux modèles. Nous analysons aussi comment le modèle entrepreneurial tend à développer les compétences entrepreneuriales des acteurs, et des organisations, favorise les échanges, l’implication au travail, la transversalité, et la création de valeur en améliorant la performance globale. Nous mettons en valeur les caractéristiques de l’organisation publique entrepreneuriale, ses implications pour les acteurs, et comment elle peut être rendue effective.

Les données de notre thèse viennent de deux études de cas réalisées après une recherche-action menée pour les Ministères de l’Intérieur et de l’Equipement de 1999 à 2002. L’étude se concentre sur les processus de mise en œuvre de politiques publiques introduisant des changements majeurs dans la stratégie, la gestion, l’organisation et la culture.

Mots clés : Stratégie, action, processus, système de pilotage, changement, transformation, politiques publiques, réforme de l’Etat.

Abstract

In France, state reforms were implemented with many difficulties, social conflicts and poor results until an entrepreneurial model of public policy implementation be developed. This model is based on process analysis, actor’s involvement in changes, and construction of collective entrepreneurial representations. The model’s originality comes from its maieutics dimension which allow politicians to avoid traditional resistances to changes modifying the way people see, think and act.

This model called Processual Action Entrepreneuship Model (PAEM) allows to understand sociological relations of power, to anticipate potential conflicts due to antagonist interests, rationalities, purposes or attempts. It proposes actions to transcend and avoid these problems, developing a systemic entrepreneurial organization based on autonomy, responsibility, involvement, initiatives, management and steering committees.

We analyse how this model allows to reveal organizational and managerial dysfunctions and how it gives indications to introduce entrepreneurship in organizations, in order to contribute to the improvement of the organization’s global performance and success of changes in a social, durable and ethic perspective.
