Starting out from the frequent empirical finding that immigrants exhibit higher educational aspirations than non-immigrants, we analyse the role of immigrants’ value of education, i.e. the subjective belief that education is beneficial for one’s life, in idealistic and realistic educational aspirations in four distinct institutional settings, comparing Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and England. While the first part of the analyses relates to how immigrants differ from non-immigrants in the value they assign to education, the second part centres on country differences considering immigrant integration policies and education systems as crucial factors. A third part relates to the links between the value of education and educational aspirations to gain some insight into how the value of education may contribute to educational decisions. Analyses are based on longitudinal data of the Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Survey in Four European Countries (CILS4EU). While results show that immigrants assign a higher value to education, the value of education does play a minor role in idealistic and realistic educational aspirations. The results of the country comparison are rather ambivalent, including very weak support for the argument that immigrants strive for education to a higher extent in countries with less favourable conditions.

This paper considers the role of language ideologies in the linguistic integration of forced migrants. It discusses the findings of an ethnographic exploration that was conducted in Luxembourg with five individuals who sought refuge there. A network of teachers and institutional representatives constituted the secondary pool of research participants. Through analysis of metalinguistic discourse and narrative episodes, the paper scrutinises the instrumental and integrative dimensions of language. In particular, it draws attention to and problematises the hegemonic ideologies that inform linguistic integration. By bringing into focus multilingual realities and mobile aspirations, this research seeks to provide a new impetus to the reconceptualisation of integration. [less ▲]

Based on biographic and qualitative network interviews with first- generation migrants from Portugal, Italy, and Germany, aged now 65 years and older, we reconstruct their preferences for later dependency on long-term care in old age (‘hands-on’ care). We regard the interviewees’ assessment of their situation as ways of achieving agency by taking into consideration the formal and informal options for care. Our results show that older adults’ care preferences are influenced by aspects associated with old age that are not specific for older migrants, and at the same time, by aspects that are strongly connected to the fact of being a migrant such as language, culture, and transnational orientation. We find a clear preference for paid care work. Challenges or even barriers in regards to care homes are related to language and culture, which lead to an anticipation of marginalisation and social isolation inside these institutions. Furthermore, it becomes evident that the different contexts of migration strongly correspond with class- specific social positioning. [less ▲]
