Regional development of peripheral regions is a persistent challenge. Border regions in Portugal, often overlapping with rural and remote areas, suffer from a spatial differentiation. These are places with structural inequalities together with a perception gap on regions prospects and resources. Accordingly to the Agency for Development and Cohesion, Portugal has "territorial asymmetries and potentialities" with impact in individual, institutions and regions development, with challenges for multilevel governance. Unequal access to local services and opportunities among vulnerable groups and a combination of exclusion and poverty are concentrated in specific territories with low access to educational opportunities or qualified jobs [5]. Young people growing up in those regions are particularly affected by this situation in their trajectories and future plan. Do young people consider border regions as spaces to leave? An exploratory case study in a Portuguese border region indicated that young people express apprehension when imagine leaving their regions, reveling a positive connectedness with their homeland identifying, however, constrains. GROW:UP proposes to investigate in border regions contexts the mutually influential relations between individual, contextual/institutional and systemic factors in young people biographies, and to analyse how communities are proactively counteracting inequalities, fostering young people engagement in positive pathways. It will use a methodology that combines policy analysis and local experts interviews to understand levels of integration of formal policies into local programmes; a survey to understand the key role of sense of belonging, resilience and engagement in young people biographies; case studies (i) to develop and in depth understanding on processes and dynamics influencing young people pathways design, (ii) to analyse how communities are proactively addressing challenges affecting young people in border regions, either encouraging young people positive pathways or equipping them to amplify opportunities.
Project
This research aims at developing risk assessment and situational intervention tools for screening and preventing misconduct in entrepreneurship. Considering the relevance of entrepreneurship on economic growth, this project intends to assess, describe and prevent misconduct committed by entrepreneurs. Such approach considers the interaction between personality characteristics of the entrepreneur and organizational environment. While these behaviours are not considered crime, they have been considered as misconduct producing externalities, endangering business moral environment, trust of stakeholders, investors, and consumers. The project will create a "Misconduct in Entrepreneurship Scale", correlating personality profiles and endorsement of misconduct among a sample of entrepreneurs. Measures of organizational culture, including ethical climate and prevention of misconduct, will be assessed. Intervention mechanisms for prevention of misconduct in entrepreneurship will be created.
