Abstract:

« Die vorliegende Bachelorarbeit befasst sich mit der strukturellen und kulturellen Integration der zweiten Generation der portugiesischen Immigrantinnen und Immigranten in Randa, Täsch und Zermatt. Die genaue Fragestellung lautet: „Wie sieht die strukturelle und kulturelle Integration der portugiesischen Secondas und Secondos im jungen Erwachsenenalter in Randa, Täsch und Zermatt aus?“ Dazu werden verschiedene Hypothesen aufgestellt und später untersucht. Im Allgemeinen ist die Arbeit in einen theoretischen und empirischen Teil unterteilt. Der theoretische Teil umfasst Themen wie die portugiesische Migration in der Schweiz bis zum Begriff der Integration. Da dieser ein wichtiger Bestandteil darstellt, wird im Näheren beleuchtet, was genau die Begründung für die Wahl des Begriffes und wie der Begriff in der neueren Migrationsforschung positioniert ist. Die Integration in Zusammenhang mit den Secondas und Secondos, sowie die politischen Hintergründe werden ebenfalls im theoretischen Teil erläutert. »

Abstract:

« Immigrants and their descendants often marry a co-ethnic partner despite the abundance of native-born marriage candidates. The prevalence of co-ethnic marriages and intermarriage among migrants is influenced by their integration level and cultural background as much as individual preferences and structural factors. Objective: This paper expands existing literature on intermarriage by analysing first marriages across European countries, distinguishing marriage type (endogamous versus exogamous) and migrant generations (immigrants versus their descendants). Methods: Data from seven countries was aggregated using the count-data method and was subsequently pooled and analysed together; first, to estimate unadjusted first marriage rates; second, to calculate marriage risks separately by marriage type; and, finally, to directly compare the risk of exogamous and endogamous marriage. »

 

 

From Kerala to Switzerland : India’s forgotten diaspora

Abstract:

« This chapter analyses the intergenerational diaspora engagement of Keralite migrants in Switzerland. In the southern state of India, Kerala, migration has been internalised to such an extent in society that scholars speak of migration as a part of the Keralite culture. Migrants play an important role in the development of their countries of origin. Diaspora engagement has emerged as a significant area of concern for academia and policy making. As migrants maintain social, economic and political transnational ties to their country of origin, they have been identified as important stakeholders for the development in their home country. Although remittances represent a very tangible link within this subject-matter, this chapter goes beyond remittances. Through a comparison of transnationalism within the first and the second generation of the Keralite diaspora in Switzerland, this article aims to figure future diaspora engagement policies. The recognition of the second generation’s double belonging is the breeding ground for effective diaspora engagement policies. However, the diaspora members in Switzerland have indicated political obstacles for an effective diaspora engagement in Kerala. By creating an enabling environment for diaspora engagement, the state of Kerala can harness and allocate the resources of its diaspora in a more effective way. »
