RESEARCH PROJECT “SOCIAL, CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS EMBEDDING OF FAMILY BUSINESSES”
It is time to draw more attention to the business family as a genuine social form. Based on this, it must be asked what connections exist between different forms of capitalism (varieties of capitalism) and the different structure, role and self-image of the family behind the company (varieties of familialism). This enables a radical change of perspective in family business research, which makes the culturally embedded and shaped family the starting point for these considerations. The previous business focus on companies is directed towards the family in its cultural diversity. This adds to the renaissance of cultural research in economics and focuses on the concept of entrepreneurship and its cultural embedding. This research project closes an important gap in research on family businesses, which enables a stronger comparative culture and ethnological orientation.
