Migration, unemployment, and lifeworld


"Migration is an issue for many countries. It affects several areas of social problems, for example, work and unemployment. A relevant issue to study in the context of unemployment and social welfare is, 'Which are experiences of migrants with different language backgrounds in finding work and support?' For a running study with episodic interviews and mobile methods with migrants from the former Soviet Union to Germany, several issues are discussed in a 'new critical inquiry': Critical issues in the studied area (help, control, normative claims); applying (familiar) qualitative methods (interviewing in various languages and cultural backgrounds or mobile methods); triangulation in a new critical migration research." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
