Abstract [en]

A wide range of policy and practical initiatives aimed at improving the engagement and performance in CSR in SMEs have been initiated at all levels of society. A central issue is to what extent and how SMEs may be engaged in CSR initiatives. This chapter discusses CSR in Swedish SMEs, more specifically how successful migrant entrepreneurs (SUME) can be engaged in initiatives facilitating the labor market integration of new migrants. The CSR perceptions, motives, and priorities of SUME in participating in initiatives that address broader social issues are explored.

Abstract [sv]

När nya bostadsområden byggs eller renoveras brottas samhällsplanerare med önskan att skapa förutsättningar för ’det goda livet’ i förortens bostäder. Bostadsområden som byggs eller renoveras lägger grunden för det lokala samhällets utveckling på längre sikt.

Därför är det viktigt att utreda vilka kan vara de viktigaste förutsättningarna för ett framgångsrikt bostadsområde. Inom forskargruppen Reinvent vid Södertörns högskola har vi brottats med frågor kring lyckade och misslyckade förorter. Den utsatthet som finns i många förorter bildar en bas för vår forskning som kretsar kring hållbarhet i förortsmiljön. Vi har identifierat tre faktorer som kan vara viktiga för hållbara förorter.

Abstract [en]

Suburbs represent an essential subject for regional studies and have a rapidly increasing economic significance within wider metropolitan regions (Phelps 2010). It is necessary to create inclusive suburbs with a stronger identity. The current growth of populations in major cities requires an ability to reorganize existing cities and a massive restructuring of urban infrastructure (Modarres and Kirby 2010). The interpretation of the needs of suburbs have previously called for a transdisciplinary and collaborative strategy (Després et al. 2004). We look at entrepreneurship and different types of 21 businesses as a source of vitalization of suburbs. These ventures are studied in the context of the diversity of the population of suburb. Entrepreneurial investments, the establishment of high impact enterprises as well as networking among local and migrant businesses represent elements that can vitalize previously marginalized suburbs. Enterprises that are clustered in suburban neighborhoods reflect the different impacts of suburban and city spatial forms. Newly arrived citizens draw upon the critical mass of ethnic members to form a niche market for ethnic business (Fong et al. 2007). Minorities may have limited access to financial capital in the larger urban economy, but ethnic enclaves may provide a source of a unique competitive advantage (Cummings 1999). Entrepreneurship rooted in a suburban surrounding represent a specific opportunity to become embedded in an economic and spatial dimension. The migrant may be seen as representing a diversity capital which penetrate specific market conditions located in ethnically diverse neighborhoods situated in the suburbs of major cities. The spatial and entrepreneurial dimension of ethnic business can thereby be given a relevant context for interpretation.
