Abstract

This book draws on award-winning cross-generational research comparing the complex and life-changing processes of settlement among Albanian migrants and their adolescent children in three European cities: London (UK), Thessaloniki (Greece), and Florence (Italy). Building on key concepts from the social sciences and migration studies, such as identity, integration and transnationalism, the author links these with emerging theoretical notions, such as mobility, translocality and cosmopolitanism. Ethnic identities, transnational ties and integration pathways of the youngsters and adults are compared, focusing on intergenerational transmission in particular and recognizing mobility as an inherent characteristic of contemporary lives. Departing from the traditional focus on the adult children of settled migrants and the main immigration countries of continental North-Western Europe, this study centres on Southern Europe and Great Britain and a very recently settled immigrant group. The result is an illuminating early look at a second generation “in-the-making”. Indeed, the findings provide ample grounds for pragmatic and forward-looking policy to enable these migrant-origin youngsters, and others like them, to more fully attain their potential. The book ends with a call to reassess the term “second generation” as it is currently used in policy and scholarly works. Children of migrants seldom see themselves as a particular and homogeneous group with ethnicity as an intrinsic identifying quality. More importantly, they make use of all the limited resources at their disposal, and view their integration processes through broader geographies – showing sometimes a cosmopolitan orientation, but also using localized reference points, such as the school, city, or urban neighbourhood.

Abstract

Warum ist es so schwierig, sich als Betroffene gegen Armut und Erwerbslosigkeit sozial zu engagieren? Ihr Einsatz ist zwar vielfältig - ob bei den Tafeln, in der Beratung oder im Protest gegen "Hartz IV". Doch auch in der Zivilgesellschaft wirken Mechanismen der Diskriminierung, die dem Anspruch dieser Akteure auf Gleichheit als Bürger entgegenstehen. Leiv Eirik Voigtländer analysiert anhand von qualitativen Interviews typische förderliche und hemmende Handlungsbedingungen und trägt so dazu bei, die soziale Spaltung bürgerschaftlichen Engagements im Kontext erodierender sozialer Rechte zu verstehen. Dem vorherrschenden Fokus auf die bürgerschaftliche Apathie der Prekären werden so die Erfahrungen von sozial engagierten Bürgern in Armutslagen entgegengestellt.

Abstract

Ob Finanz-, Pflege- oder Bildungskrise - aktuelle Krisen bergen das Potenzial, die Legitimität von Herrschaft zu verändern. Die Stabilität von Legitimationsmustern ist gesellschaftlich, politisch und wissenschaftlich umkämpft und historisch jeweils neu zu reflektieren: Werden Formen der Legitimation etwa von Demokratie, Leistung, sozialen Ungleichheiten und Wahrheits- oder Herrschaftsansprüchen brüchig? Entstehen in Krisendiskursen neue Deutungshorizonte oder gewinnen bislang als selbstverständlich akzeptierte Rechtfertigungsmuster an neuer Überzeugungskraft? Die Beiträge des Bandes untersuchen die Herausbildung und den Verlauf von Bruchlinien der Rechtfertigung in so unterschiedlichen Bereichen wie Politik, Wirtschaft und Arbeit, Bildung, Wissenschaft und Medien.

Abstract

With the "opening of universities" to "non-traditional students", education policy demands for far-reaching reforms are addressed to German universities. How do universities meet these demands and what curricular-didactical considerations result from them? The authors take up this question as a productive moment in development-oriented action based on didactics of higher education and explore the potential - both for changes and for stabilisations in the area of higher education teaching - in an exemplary manner. Against the background of the framework conditions of a university of applied sciences, they discuss the possibilities of a target group-specific, curricular-didactic further development of part-time, social-scientifically oriented study programmes and present further reflections.
