Abstract: In the globalized economy, migration as a new development tool is one of the new paradigmsin which entrepreneurship actors play an important role. Among them, immigrants play asignificant role in host countries. Changes in the context of globalization are fostering the need for a deeper understanding of the complexity of immigrants’ entrepreneurial processand behavior. The overall objective of this thesis is to show that specificity of the determinants of immigrants’ entrepreneurial emergence depends on their individual characteristics and those of host environments. To achieve this overall objective, a sub-objective is chosen per article among the three that make up this thesis. In the first article, it was a question of developing a synthesis and an integrative conceptual framework of the sub-fields of study of the immigrant entrepreneurial activity sets. In the second article, we proceeded to generate a theory for an entrepreneurial intention model that fits with the international reality of immigrants. In the third article, we assessed the effect of key determinants on the entrepreneurial intention of immigrants. Results and contributions include the identification of four subfields of study and four factor levels that explain the entrepreneurial process (individual, ethnic group, business and environmental characteristics), understanding entry into entrepreneurship implies that the immigrant has a cognitive ability subject to assessing perceived constraints and opportunities in terms of perceived risk, the use of structural equations model allowed us to highlight the distance of entrepreneurial culture as a perceived feasibility reducer, while entrepreneurship institutional support should act as its amplifier in order to maximize entrepreneurial intention (for the ultimate act).
