Videos on Successful Immigrants

Research by my colleagues Rosita Fibbi, Robin Stünzi, Agota Sanislo, and Philipp Schnell on pathways to success is now available via video (in French and German). The research was supported by Fondation Mercator Suisse. The research shows immigrants overcoming their disadvantaged background to successfully integrate into work.

2-year postdoc at the SFM in Neuchâtel

The SFM is now looking for a 2-year postdoc to work on a project on the political participation of naturalized citizens. The project wants to analyse the political preferences of naturalized citizens, the drivers to become active participants in left and right wing parties and how they make sense of their background with regard to the party’s discourses. This will be measured on the basis of content analysis and biographical interviews.

Deadline: 31 October 2018
