Ida Kvittingen has written her master’s thesis as part of the EUMARGINS project. The title of her thesis is 'Equal or unique employee? 'Visible minorities' job seeking experiences' and is about visible minorities’ transition from higher education to the labour market. Her qualitative study is based on ten in-depth interviews with visible minorities who have recently finished their master degree in either social or natural sciences and are entering the job market. The master thesis (which is written in Norwegian) is available online. The English summary is provided below.
The third EUMARGINS newsletter (May 2011, Vol. 3) contains a wide selection of project news, some of which are: a comprehensive overview of the project in May; a positive review of our first book, ”Inclusion and Exclusion of Youth Adult Migrants in Europe,” Katrine Fangen, Kirsten Fossan and Ferdinand Andreas Mohn (eds.) published in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence; and an illustrative case from the French national context: Isabelle’s Story.
The second EUMARGINS newsletter (April 2011, Vol. 2) includes a comprehensive overview of the project in April and highlights from the lived experience of a young adult immigrant in Spain, Suelí’s case.
Suelí’s case represents the second illustrative case from the Spanish national context. At 29 years old, Suelí's slightly older than the average EUMARGINS sample (18-25 years of age), nevertheless, she represents the conflict that many young adult immigrants face in Europe today, particularly after the 2008 financial crisis.
Welcome to the first publication of our monthly newsletter (March 2011, Vol. 1) dedicated to European conditions for the inclusion and exclusion of young adult immigrants and descendants.
The aim of this newsletter is two-fold, firstly, to keep you informed of the project developments, publications and findings and, secondly, to build awareness about the issues, including the barriers and bridges, that relate to this category of young adults in order to gather a more nuanced understanding of the problems at hand as well as their subsequent solutions.
