Aulenbacher, Brigitte ; Leiblfinger, Michael ; Prieler, Veronika

In:, 2020, vol. 2, no. 5, p. Article: 2.5

Over the last decades, the marketization of live-in care for the elderly in Austria has been accompanied by new forms of regulation and the contestation surrounding this type of care provision. The article analyzes this process as a Polanyian double movement – the movement of a market-driven provision of care and organization of care work, and countermovements seeking protection from its...

This thesis contributes to labour economics by considering a wide range of factors influencing career paths, transitions to self- employment and duration in entrepreneurship. In the past literature, several studies have analysed labour market outcomes, transitions and durations. Nevertheless, there is the need of knowing more about the influence of individual and background characteristics on...

Between Flows and Places: Conceptualizing the Migration-Mobility Nexus

Hoffmeyer-Zlotnik, Paula

(nccr on the move ; 25)

This paper sets out to conceptualize the nexus between migration and mobility as the connection between two contrasting perspectives on human movement. I use the notion of a “nexus” as an analytical lens to identify connections, overlaps or contradictions between the terms “migration” and “mobility”. I find that although migration and mobility are often seen as distinct phenomena, the...

Negotiating research in the shadow of migration control: access, knowledge and cognitive authority

Rosset, Damian ; Achermann, Christin

In: Social Anthropology, 2019, vol. 27, no. 51, p. 49-67

This article recounts the failure to gain access to the Swiss asylum agency's ‘country of origin information’ (COI) unit and how it negatively impacted access to similar research sites in Europe. As producers of indispensable expert knowledge, these units play an important instrumental and symbolic role in asylum procedures and policies. Interpreted as a situated case of knowledge control,...

Switzerland – Really Europe's Heart of Darkness?

Manatschal, Anita

In: Swiss Political Science Review (SPSR), 2015, vol. 21, no. 1, p. 23-35

Immigration is a prominent and contested global topic of contemporary politics. Several recent popular votes targeting migration such as the minaret initiative, the automatic deportation initiative, and most recently the vote on “mass immigration”, evoke however the impression that Switzerland sets particularly harsh standards in migration policy. Based on historical evidence on Swiss...

Taking Cantonal Variations of Integration Policy Seriously — or How to Validate International Concepts at the Subnational Comparative Level

Manatschal, Anita

In: Swiss Political Science Review (SPSR), 2011, vol. 17, no. 3, p. 336-357

Subnational varieties of immigrant integration policy, which are particularly salient in federal states, remain largely neglected by migration studies. Following Lijphart, who long demanded to verify international research at the subnational level, this study aims at capturing subnational policy variations using the example of Swiss cantons. In line with international approaches, cantonal...

Do Integration Policies Affect Immigrants' Voluntary Engagement? An Exploration at Switzerland's Subnational Level

Manatschal, Anita ; Stadelmann-Steffen, Isabelle

In: Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2014, vol. 40, no. 3, p. 404-423

This paper investigates whether integration policies influence immigrants' propensity to volunteer, the latter being an important element of immigrants' integration into the host society. By distinguishing different categories of integration policies at Switzerland's subnational level and applying a Bayesian multilevel approach, our results suggest varying policy effects: while policies fostering...

Path-dependent or dynamic? Cantonal integration policies between regional citizenship traditions and right populist party politics

Manatschal, Anita

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2012, vol. 35, no. 2, p. 281-297

Immigrant integration policies are commonly assumed to be shaped by traditional understandings of citizenship and belonging. Accordingly, such policy frameworks are considered path-dependent and thus stable over time. The recent surge of radical right anti-immigrant parties in many Western European countries challenges this stability-thesis. Several scholars contend that this change in the party...
