Women as vectors of social entrepreneurship in hospitality and tourism
The main aim of this research project is to explore the nature, motivations and extent to which female entrepreneurs in hospitality and tourism-related sectors use their businesses as platforms for engagement in various forms of social entrepreneurship leading to value (co)creation, economic and community development in emerging tourism destinations of sub-saharan Africa such as Cameroon.
The findings will clarify the role and importance of women's social entrepreneurship in hospitality and tourism, which is often overlooked and under-researched, and propose policy recommendations for maximising social value creation through women's participation in social entrepreneurship.
