Freedom and Entrepreneurship for Independent and Franchise Care Service Entrepreneurs

Soili Vento, Doctoral student

This PhD research project addresses the character of work of care service entrepreneurs and is based on their in-depth interviews. The theoretical approach for the analysis of care entrepreneurship consists of Hegel's concept of practical freedom and Berlin's concepts of negative and positive liberty.

The PhD thesis was defended on 29 June 2018 in Social and Public Policy at the University of Jyväskylä, see here. The thesis is available here (in Finnish).
