Cities, Migrant Incorporation, and Ethnicity: A Network Perspective on Boundary Work

Dahinden, Janine

In: Journal of International Migration and Integration, 2013, vol. 14, no. 1, p. 39-60

n this article, I am interested in the different types of boundaries emerging in a city characterized by a highly diverse population. The analysis of the personal social networks of 250 inhabitants of a small Swiss City—different types of migrants as well as non-migrants—supplemented by data from qualitative interviews brings to light the important categories for the creation of boundaries...

In: Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopaedia of Race, Ethnicity and Nationalism (The), 2015, p. 1-3

The multiethnic and multilinguistic character of Switzerland has represented a puzzle for major scholars on European nationalism since the nineteenth century. Research shows that this multiethnicity is a pivotal element of pride and central to the common Swiss imaginary of a “nation of will,” which embraces local, cantonal, and linguistic identities. In parallel, this particular case of...

A plea for the ‘de-migranticization' of research on migration and integration

Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2016, p. 1

Migration and integration research has been institutionalized over the last few decades. However, an increasing number of voices has been calling for more reflexivity, criticizing the nation-state- and ethnicity-centred epistemology that often informs this discipline. Consistently with this line of reasoning, I argue that migration and integration research originates in a historically...

Are we all transnationals now? Network transnationalism and transnational subjectivity: the differing impacts of globalization on the inhabitants of a small Swiss city

Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2009, vol. 32, no. 8, p. 1365-1386

I ask in this article how the inhabitants - migrants and non-migrants - of a specific geographical space, a small Swiss city in French-speaking Switzerland, live out different forms of transnationalism. Transnationalism is for this purpose defined and operationalized on two dimensions: I make a distinction between network transnationalism and what I call transnational subjectivity....

Duemmler, Kerstin ; Dahinden, Janine

Ethnic Group Representation in a Cross-National Comparison

Ruedin, Didier

In: The Journal of Legislative Studies, 2009, vol. 15, no. 4, p. 335-354

This paper compares the levels of ethnic group representation in parliament in 95 democracies. The analyses are comparative in nature, breaking with the literature where single country studies are the norm. Considering both electoral and cultural variables, the results cast doubt on whether the role of the electoral system in shaping political representation is dominant. In contrast to what much...

"A chacune son islam" : réflexion anthropologique sur l'articulation d'une catégorie identitaire

Talal, Noura ; Dahinden, Janine (Dir.)

Mémoire de diplôme universitaire : Université de Neuchâtel, 2008.

Ce travail se propose de formuler une réflexion anthropologique sur la pertinence de la catégorie migratoire : « les musulmans ». Depuis plusieurs années, il est régulièrement question dans les médias, de cette catégorie de migrants. Mais d’un point de vue anthropologique, cette désignation est problématique à plusieurs égards. Premièrement, de par son caractère normatif et...
