THE FORMATION OF NETWORKING COOPERATION AMONG SMALL ENTERPRISES IN CENTRAL EUROPE
|Regular Projects/Special Funds||The Sasakawa Peace Foundation|
Emerging small enterprises have contributed greatly to a peaceful transition of society in Central European countries. Despite prospective roles they are expected to play in the newly democratized societies, these small enterprises often falter due to immature business experiences and insufficient political and institutional support. One way to overcome these challenges, this book suggests, can be found in spontaneous network formation of these enterprises that will promote exchange of experiences. The book contains 12 successful cases in the region, which reveal several non-economic factors that shape the behavioral patterns promoting cooperation.
