According to this concept, groups of national cultures and is expected to climb the ladder of crime and eventually occupy a prominent position on illegal markets. Official classifications of organized crime, for example, have often been inspired by the skills and ethnic categories. Has long been disputed criminological analysis the "trap of ethnicity", both by the large number of ethnic groups involved in transnational organized crime and the interaction involving companies in professional matters.

Given the increasing social, geographical and cultural links between mobility, ethnicity can be considered less as a causal factor or the facilitation of mobility itself. It should pay more attention to analyzing how geographic, social and cultural factors can facilitate the mobility of professional enterprises.

In this respect, a different issue could be explored, namely that ethnic minority groups, in order to develop professional entrepreneurship, need partners among the indigenous groups of the host society marginalizing itself.
