New Entrant Farmers in the Context of the Greek Debt Crisis: Identifying Antecedents and Outcomes of the Underlying Entrepreneurial Learning Process
The focus group of this thesis are the crisis-led new entrant farmers in Greece. In other words, the cohorts of Greek people who, seeking a refugee from the debt-crisis ravaging the country or/and recognising a window for opportunity in agriculture, get involved into farming by establishing their own farm ventures without having a relevant prior professional experience with agriculture.
