Ethnic Entrepreneurship: Creating an Identity-Enhancing Assemblage of Public and Private Servicescapes in the Global City

We draw upon the global city literature to integrate two disparate strands of consumer research: consumer acculturation and servicescapes. Based on a multi-city investigation of Roma migrants, we develop the construct of ethnic entrepreneurship as an underrepresented mode of producerly-consumption through which an array of public and private servicescapes is transformed into an assemblage of identity-enhancing resources.
