Morris, Mervyn J. (2007) Entrepreneurship as social policy: A case study of the United Arab Emirates. In Regional Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Conference, February 2007, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Qld, Australia. (Unpublished)


While many different entrepreneurship have been identified in the literature, each type shars one feature in common - the rofit motive. Entrepreneurship is generally seen as contributing to the economic development of a country. However, it will be argued that entrepreneurship can be used for social policy, with economic policy a secondary issue. The discussion uses the United Arab Emirates as an example of the potential use of entrepreneurship a social policy.
