Geena Whiteman


ESRC Ph.D Student (School to Entrepreneurship Transitions), Youth Social Entrepreneurship Education Consultant

I am currently enrolled in a 1+3 ESRC Funded PhD Programme undertaking research on the school to entrepreneurship transition in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo. This is a multidisciplinary project combining labour economics, political science and education studies, exploring how young people within the post-conflict post-socialist nexus develop their interest in, and pursue entrepreneurship. My wider research interests include: youth unemployment, labour market transitions, human capital development, youth participation, social entrepreneurship, human rights in business, education policy and sustainable development. For more information, click for my ESRC DTP profile or my ResearchGate profile.

I am an experienced project coordinator and workshop facilitator, with a demonstrated history of working on youth entrepreneurship related projects, predominantly within the capacity of international projects (under the Erasmus+ programme). I am currently involved in ad-hoc workshop design and delivery for numerous NGOs across the Europe and MENA regions, as well as working as a private tutor of Business, Economics and Social Entrepreneurship for Oxford Summer Courses. I am also an ambassador and mentor for the World Summit Awards, and a Trustee for Remembering Srebrenica Wales.
