  • Introduction

    There has been a global concern about poverty reduction and employment generation especially in less developed countries, even those amidst resource wealth. There are a number of applicable policies that have been designed to help addressing these phenomena towards achieving improved development of economies of these countries. But many of these countries are either experiencing or affected with a disaster or a violence conflict, adding to the poverty and unemployment that are characterized with most of them. In spite the continuous debate on the potential impact of entrepreneurship to lead to sustainable development with regard to poverty reduction and job creation, however, the new quest is whether entrepreneurial development has potential to restore entrepreneurial work-life balance in conflict-affected developing countries, and whether it could lift out the poor people who are majority from poverty.
    Also, there is an issue that many countries in Asia, Middle East and Africa are resource rich but less developed for having small and medium-sized enterprises that neither competitive nor dynamic nor the resources translate to growth. This most often call for economic policy interventions. Quite plausibly, such policies may not appropriate for dynamic private sector. Another issue that calls for nexus thinking is that most of these countries are targeted for new entrepreneurial development but they are conflict ridden. Thus, the special issue under the journal aims at inviting original scientific research works for publication which would address a variety of issues and incorporate a variety of approaches and inform policies on entrepreneurial development, resources allocation and conflict resolution, and those that would develop tools for selecting entrepreneurship with more potential for development and policies that can help those developmental-led entrepreneurship to grow.
