The Relevance and Benefits of my Research

My studies on the entrepreneurialization of society, the economization of culture and the governance of ethnic minorities provide valuable knowledge for researchers, administrators and policy-makers, artists, entrepreneurs, members of minority groups and societally active citizens. Systematic tools for understanding the diversity of modern governance of individuals and communities is needed now more than before.
