The seminar looks at whether self-employed entrepreneurs are more ‘rooted’ in their place of residence than employees. This is crucial for understanding the dynamics of self-employment and its local embeddedness. Are people who are more rooted in place more likely to start up a business and remain ‘stuck’ in place? The ‘residential rootedness’-hypothesis prevailing in the literature is tested for the UK and Germany. More specifically, it looks at migration flows of self-employed entrepreneurs in South East England. Is there a trend for them to out-migrate from London to the ‘urbanised countryside’? Does the South East gain entrepreneurial resources in terms of self-employed workers through in-migration?
