Transnational actions of Indian migrants in Germany

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"Research question Which links are created between India and Germany by people of Indian origin, living in Germany? Background The number of people of Indian origin in Germany is relatively small, compared to other migrant groups. At the end of 2014 76,000 non-resident Indians lived in Germany. Though, this number has more than doubled compared to 2000. Therefore, the group of Indian migrants shows relatively high growth rates compared to migrants from other countries. At the same time, the duration of stay in Germany is for Indian nationals much shorter than the average duration of stay by other nationalities. These figures indicate, that the Indo-German migration is highly dynamic. This research project looks at the new cross-border linkages, which are created by Indian migrants living in Germany. In this context relevant questions are inter alia: Which cross-border relations to friends and family are maintained? How do people keep in touch with their relatives “back home”? How do these migrants change their places of settlement and their places of origin? Aim of the project The project on the one hand aims at understanding, what living transnational means for persons of Indian origin. The guiding question of the project is: How far are persons of Indian origin who are living in Germany embedded in transnational networks and which transformation processes do they initiate at their places of residency and their places of origin? On the other hand the project aims at contributing conceptually to the development of the transnationalism concept. "

Age- and Sex-Specific Migration Patterns in Eastern Germany

Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"Emigration from Eastern to Western Germany dominated internal migration and population development in the years following the Fall of the Wall in 1989. While in the meantime East- to West-migration lost importance small-scale migration within Eastern Germany became more prevalent. Today, this results in an antagonistic regional development especially between rural regions and urban areas with universities. The project aims to analyse internal migration patterns within Eastern Germany. Its main objective is the investigation of age- and sex-specific migration patterns and its influence on regional population development and social structure. Special attention is devoted to the situation of young women in Eastern Germany."

Transnational Labor Markets: Migration of workers between Austria and Germany

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
We will merge labor market information on German migrants observed working in Austria with their labor market outcomes during any years they were working in Germany (either before or after their time in Austria). Similarly, we will merge labor market information on Austrian migrants observed in Germany with their labor market outcomes for any years they were working in Austria. To illustrate the nature of the resulting data set, consider a German citizen who works for several years in Germany (say, from ages 19 to 24), then moves to Austria for several years, then returns. For this individual we will be able to construct a complete longitudinal history of earnings outcomes in both the home country (Germany) and the destination country (Austria), before, during and after the migration spell. The available data for each worker will include: gender and year of birth; total earnings and total days worked in each job held in either country; all spells of unemployment in either country; geographic location and industry of each job; characteristics of co-workers at each job (e.g., fraction of co-workers who are migrants from Germany or Austria); detailed occupation (for all jobs in Germany) or blue-collar/white collar status (for all jobs in Austria); and education (reported for jobs in Germany). We will supplement these data with corresponding information on samples of native (non-migrant) workers in the two countries. These supplementary data will be used in two ways: (1) to form detailed comparisons in the home country labor market between people who emigrate and people who do not, before and after a migration spell; and (2) to form detailed comparisons in the destination country labor market between immigrants and natives. Our analysis plan includes three main components: (i) Descriptive Analysis of Migration Flows between Austria and Germany (ii) Analysis of outcomes before and after first migration experience (iii) Analysis of return migration and circular (repeat) migration

Abstract
The IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees in Germany is a representative longitudinal survey conducted jointly by the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) in Nuremberg, the Research Centre on Migration, Integration, and Asylum of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF-FZ) and the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) at the DIW Berlin. The first wave of the survey was carried out in 2016, where interviews were sought with 4.816 persons who have arrived in Germany since 2013. The IAB-BAMF-SOEP Survey of Refugees provides a database which permits to gain new insights about living conditions of individuals who sought protection in Germany in recent years.

Xenophobia in (East) Germany

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"Theoretical background and objectives The emergence of the PEGIDA movement in 2014, the right-winged terror of the NSU, as well as the violent protests against refugees in 2015 demonstrate how easily anti-immigrant attitudes become politically mobilized. However, the recent wave of refugees from Syria and other countries has also sparked high levels of solidarity and civic engagement among many Germans who have welcomed refugees with open arms and gifts. Apparently, the very same social reality triggers feelings of fear or dislike in some and feelings of sympathy and empathy in others. Yet such individual differences in reactions to immigration and ethno-cultural diversity are also region-specific. At first sight it seems that perceived threat and hostility are more wide-spread in the East, whereas acts of solidarity are more common in the West. The question that we like to ask in our project is why this is the case. In other words, why do East Germans appear to feel more threatened by ethnic diversity, otherness and different immigrant and refugee groups? Previous studies have shown that xenophobia is particularly strong among Eastern Germans compared to their Western counterparts; and that is also true for societal attitudes such as generalized trust. Often these findings had been related to the harsher socio-economic realities of the East and the lack of intergroup contact. However, other research indicates that particularly East Germans maintain a relatively high support for overall social solidarity especially when it comes to redistribution of resources and reducing the divide between the poor and rich. How can these two divergent findings be reconciled? What is behind the East/West divide on such societal attitudes and how do they translate into support for various political solutions to the refugee crisis? Is xenophobia in East Germany a discrete phenomenon or rather part of a larger (a)social syndrome? Research design, data and methodology Drawing on well-established theories on social identity, life events, intergroup contact, threat, or deprivation, we will apply a mixed method design (combining different data sources and methodological approaches) in order to disentangle the dynamics that make some Germans and particularly East Germans vulnerable to xenophobia—while simultaneously asking about the characteristics at the individual and contextual levels that make some people resilient against it. We plan to combine existing surveys, new surveys, experiments as well as regional statistics to answer these questions."

Germany and the 2015 Refugee Crisis

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
During the second half of 2015 Germany witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of refugees, fueled in particular by the conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic. Totaling more than one million people in 2015, this mass arrival of refugees to Germany is the largest of its kind since the early 1990s.Accommodating and providing for these forced migrants entail various challenges for Germany, both in the economic realm, and in the political, social, and legal spheres. The housing and integration of refugees puts strains on public finances, social welfare systems, the education system, as well as real estate and labor markets, and it raises issues about domestic social and political cohesion, security and crime, as well as international quandaries around a fair allocation of refugees. Because of the currentness of events, however, (even most basic) data on the mass inflow of refugees to Germany and empirical evidence on the effects of this inflow are scarce. As a consequence, little is yet known on how this inflow did impact German society, domestic politics, and the economy, and how malleable, in particular, this impact has been to regional variation in economic conditions and in public policies governing the regional distribution of refugees and the type of their accommodation. In this research project, we will explore this question by studying the impact of the mass inflow of refugees to Germany in four key areas: (1) electoral outcomes, (2) real estate markets, (3) anti-foreign violence and criminal activity by foreigners, as well as (4) charitable giving, both monetary, in kind, and through voluntary work.

Reasons to Emigrate from Germany

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"In the context of a globalising world and increasing transnational migration processes, since the late 1990s international mobility among the German population has developed into a prominent field of public, political and scientific discourse. Unlike the extensive research about immigration to Germany, few academic analyses exist that focus on the emigration and return migration processes of the German population. Given the recent demographic developments and the expected decline of the skilled workforce, political decision-makers are interested in reliable and comparable information about the extent, causes and consequences of emigration and return migration. The objective of this study is the analysis of these emigration and return migration processes with a focus on different migration motives being of particular interest. Similarly, the influence of economic conditions and political contexts in the countries of origin and destination on emigration and return migration will be analysed. In addition to these substantive interests, the study also explores the feasibility of drawing a representative sample of the internationally mobile German population."

IAB-BAMF-SOEP survey of refugees

Year 2019
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The IAB-BAMF-SOEP Refugee Sample is a cooperation project of the IAB, the SOEP at DIW Berlin and the Research Center of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF-FZ). It is a survey of recently arrived asylum seekers in Germany regarding their socio-economic attributes, their schooling, their flight routes and experience as well as their past and current living conditions, their labor market experience and their values regarding various sociopolitical issues (democracy, religion, gender equality). The first wave of this survey has been conducted in 2016 and covers 4,816 adult refugees, who arrived in Germany since 2013. The Refugee Sample has been drawn from the Central Register of Foreigners (AZR) of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). It is a representative survey for the refugees, who arrived in Germany between 1.1.2013 and 31.1.2016 and were registered as asylum seekers by the end of June 2016. The design of the sample follows a longitudinal structure, whereby asylum seekers from countries with a good prospect of staying in Germany at the time of the sampling (i.e. Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria) have been oversampled. In addition, the oversampling has also been applied to women and persons aged over 30. These disproportions are taken into account by means of appropriate weighting methods, so that the results can always be interpreted as representative findings.

Mobile Ageing: Transnational Pendular Migration and Care Networks of Retirees between Turkey and Germany

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project investigates the connections between the border-crossing mobile ageing practices of retirees and their social networks in the context of care needs and services between Turkey and Germany. A growing number of elderly people from Germany – with and without prior turkish migration background – temporarily settles in tourist areas of Turkey as mobile retirement locations. Starting from the turkish coastal city of Alanya, two sub-studies will be carried out on the mobility practices and care networks of retirees from Germany both with and without prior migration backgrounds from Turkey. The project aims to understand comparatively for both groups the conditions under which border-crossing lifestyles can be maintained, to identify causes and motivations, and to understand how forms of care and support circulate in transnational networks.

Immigration and Voting Behaviour

Year 2011
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The aim of the project was to contribute to the understanding and explanation of citizens' attitudes towards immigration and immigrants as well as to draw attention to possible political consequences of these attitudes.An additional starting point of the project was the fact that relevant research literature is based as a rule on direct survey questioning. Given how prone the topic is to provoke conflicts - with economic arguments („Fachkräftemangel“, shortage of skilled workers), wide-spread public scepticism, social desirability and political correctness driving these conflicts, such surveys seem hardly ideal. This project goes beyond earlier studies by choosing methodologically another, rather subtle and more valid way of measuring attitudes.Building on recent relevant research predominantly from the U.S. this was the first study in Germany to employ such alternative techniques, among others experimental variations of individual migrants' features including morphing techniques and methods based on reaction rates (implicit attitudes tests).Overall, the project showed that first, alternative measures to capture sensitive topics such as immigration can successfully be adopted in Germany and second, that they lead to different results than established procedures. Current events and discussions like the protest marches mainly in Eastern Germany (“Pegida”) and electoral successes of the party Alternative for Germany (“Alternative für Deutschland”, AfD), suggest that further research following this approach could be highly relevant.

Suspicious but Needed: Westemigranten between U.S. Exile and Return to the GDR

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This book project under the planned title "Beargwöhnt und benötigt: Westemigranten zwischen USA-Exil und DDR" (Suspicious and Needed: German Communist Émigrés Between the United States and Their Return to the GDR) focuses on the life and work of the German communist refugees in the United States, who returned, after 1945, to East Germany to help build a socialist society. It is mainly based on archival material from the US and Germany, including FBI files and personal files in the German Federal Archives and the Stasi Archives.This project will explore how the individual and collective experiences of these East German communists affected their lives and work. The group under review includes around forty individuals (around seventy with their families) who lived in the United States between 1938 and 1945-48. Among them were prominent and even famous writers, artists, and scholars, such as Bertolt Brecht, Ernst Bloch, Hanns and Gerhart Eisler, Henryk Grossmann, Stefan Heym, Alfred Kantorowicz, and Samuel Mitja Rapoport. Not all of them were members of the Communist Party of Germany, but all belonged in the US to a network that was closely linked with the party. The book will discuss the dual perception of the United States by the refugees: as a land that saved their lives and as a society that was largely racially segregated.In communist East Germany the returning refugees were welcomed and needed but likewise seen with suspicion. Their scholarly and artistic expertise could not be separated from their exile experience in the main country of "Western imperialism." The so-called Westemigranten (émigrés to the West) had to orient themselves in a society that was mainly directed by those communists who had returned from the Soviet Union or had survived Nazism in concentration camps or prisons. While many of the returnees from the US succeeded in literature, arts, science and scholarship or the media, only very few, such as Albert Norden, pursued political careers.The project will deal with the following key questions:1.) What political plans for a post-war Germany did the communist refugees conceptualize in American exile?2.) Why did these people return to East Germany and not to West Germany during the Cold War?3.) Was there a common cultural "American exile experience" that shaped the thoughts and actions of the former refugees in the GDR?4.) How did the "Westemigranten" survive the political purges of the 1950s? How was their political commitment shaped by these experiences? What were their places and positions in East German society in later years?

Abstract
Darryl Pinckney’s “Black Deutschland” (2016), Paul Beatty’s “Slumberland” (2008), and John A. Williams’ “Clifford’s Blues” (1999) are three recent novels by African American authors and with African American protagonists that are partly set in Germany and that include references to events of German history such as the Holocaust and German Reunification. The research action will take these three novels as points of departure for an investigation that combines an accurate analysis of the images and functions of Germany and German history in African American literature with a transnational, comparative perspective. Drawing on a theoretical framework that connects comparative imagology, black diaspora studies, and the recent academic focus on world literature's “multidirectional memory” and its “cosmopolitan style”, the project will analyze four historically diverse, cross-cultural discourses that have shaped the role of Germany and German history in African American literature: 1) the formation of a ‘canonic’ African American image of postromantic Wilhelminian Germany that can be traced back to Du Bois’ time as a student in Berlin (1892-94); 2) the interwar period and its intertwining sub-discourses of the Old World as “racial haven” for African Americans, and of Berlin as “European capital of sexual libertinage”; 3) National Socialism and its relations and parallels to racism in the U.S.; 4) African American perceptions of Germany as a divided and/or reunified country. The project is based at two institutions in Berlin: the interdisciplinary Zentrum für Literatur- and Kulturforschung (ZfL), where the applicant will be part of the research area on world literature, and the Kennedy Institute for North American Studies at the FU Berlin, where a secondment will take place. The project's location in the German capital, which is in itself a major topic of the research action, will be a connecting factor for numerous networking, dissemination and communication activities.
