Theoretical Overview of Immigrant Entrepreneurship. In this article we review several different concepts related to immigrant incorporation in the labour market through self-employment. We also examine the main theoretical currents concerned with explaining the phenomenon, occasionally with particular attention to culturalist, ecological and interactive factors typical of the North American environment. However, the European case requires a new model, based on social embedment, analysing both market determinants and context of reception, which are usually stricter. Finally, we go on to the new perspectives of research that understands consolidation of immigrant entrepreneurs as a logical transnational action. Sociológia 2009, Vol. 41 (No. 3: 199-221)

Financial Support of Families in the Czech Republic and Slovakia from the European Perspective: More Similar than Different? The paper explores the character and impact of financial pro-family measures in various European countries. A micro-level analysis is applied to examine how much financial benefit is obtained by different types of families using a “Model Family Method”. The set of the countries analysed consists of two states from Central Europe and a number of Western democracies representing each of the welfare state types as defined by Esping-Andersen. A comparison of selected countries draws on an indicator assessing the difference in the value of all child related benefits when contrasted with benefits paid to families with no children. Through Cluster Analysis this paper uses the influential Esping-Andersen welfare state typology at the family income level, and explores the positioning of the two post-communist states within this typology. The key questions addressed are: Do the Czech Republic and Slovakia still employ a similarly focussed and generous financial support system for families? How do these two countries compare to other European states in respect to financial family support? Contrary to researchers who classify all the Central European states into one category of “post-socialist” countries, the author argues that despite their common values and shared history, these two post-communist countries do not constitute – on a level of financial family support – a unique group vis-à-vis states in Western Europe.

Better Regulation and Regulatory Quality: the Case of RIA in Slovakia. Regulatory reforms in Europe and OECD countries in the last decade have focused on various tools that would improve ‘regulatory quality’. Regulatory impact assessment (RIA) is considered to be a tool that assists the decision-makers to make choice by systematic appraisal of the potential effects (fiscal, social, economic and other) to proposed legislation. Slovakia, together with other newly accessed countries adopted this tool in 2001, however, there is no systematic research available that would discuss the level of implementation and quality of the information in the regulatory impact assessments conducted in these countries. This article deals with the quality of information contained in regulatory impact assessments conducted in Slovakia. Sociológia 2009, Vol. 41 (No. 3: 247-264)
