Tomasz Mickiewicz

50th Anniversary Professor of Economics, Aston University

I work on entrepreneurship, new businesses, political institutions and culture, and on transition and emerging market economies. I serve as one of the editors of 'Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice' (ETP) and 'Post Communist Economies'. Apart from ETP, I also publish in Journal of Business Venturing, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of World Business, Small Business Economics, Journal of Institutional Economics, Regional Studies and few others. I was born in Poland and came to the UK in 1995. My most recent work includes:
* Creativity and security as a cultural recipe for entrepreneurship, with Anneli Kaasa, in Journal of Institutional Economics
* Authoritarian Populism in Comparative Perspective, forthcoming in The Palgrave Handbook of Comparative Economics
* State Capitalism with Populist Characteristics: Poland and Hungary, with Maciej Bałtowski and Piotr Kozarzewski, forthcoming in Oxford Handbook on State Capitalism and the Firm
