Abstract

Based on a study among higher-educated adult children of lower-class Turkish and Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands, this open access book explores processes of identification among social climbers with ethnic minority backgrounds. Using both survey data and open interviews with these ‘minority climbers’, the study details the contextual and temporal nature of identification. The results illustrate how ethnicity is contextual but have tangible and inescapable effects at the same time. Also the findings call for a more reflexive use of terms like ethnic ingroup/outgroup and bonding/bridging. Overall, the book helps us understand the emergence of middle-class segments that articulate their minority identities and as such it will be of great interest to academics, policy makers and all those interested in processes of integration and/or diversity.

Abstract

In diesem Open-Access-Buch werden in einem methodisch unkonventionellen, quasi-archäologischen Vorgehen aus Architekturen von Schulhäusern die in ,Stein gehauenen‘ Sinnstrukturen rekonstruiert. In ihren Raum(an)ordnungen eröffnen Architekturen einen Möglichkeitsraum, dem spezifische pädagogische Ordnungen und Vorstellungen ,guter Schule‘ eingeschrieben sind und der die Praktiken und Beziehungen der Akteure vorstrukturiert. Schulgebäude und architektonische Artefakte fungieren somit als eine latent wirkende Einflussstruktur, die subtil und zugleich dauerhaft die Schule in ihrer ,Schulförmigkeit‘ festschreibt. Schulförmige Artefakte erzeugen eindeutige, monofunktionale Handlungsaufforderungen und unterbinden gleichzeitig Handlungsalternativen.

Abstract

‘This open access book addresses an urgent issue on which little organized information exists. It reflects experience in Africa but is highly relevant to other fragile states as well.’ —Constantine Michalopoulos, John Hopkins University, USA and former Director of Economic Policy and Co-ordination at the World Bank Fragile countries face a triple data challenge. Up-to-date information is needed to deal with rapidly changing circumstances and to design adequate responses. Yet, fragile countries are among the most data deprived, while collecting new information in such circumstances is very challenging. This open access book presents innovations in data collection developed with decision makers in fragile countries in mind. Looking at innovations in Africa from mobile phone surveys monitoring the Ebola crisis, to tracking displaced people in Mali, this collection highlights the challenges in data collection researchers face and how they can be overcome.
