The main aim of this article is to shed light on the extent to which differences in higher education participation between people with and without a migrant background of low/higher social origin can be explained by two macro-level characteristics of national educational institutions: stratification of the secondary school system and provision of alternative access to higher education. General assumptions are that people with a migrant background of low social origin benefit in low-stratified secondary school systems and in systems that provide alternative access to institutions of higher education more than their native peers in the same social stratum, owing to primary and secondary effects of migrant background. Database is a pooled dataset of the five waves of the European Social Survey. Results of logistic multi-level analyses indicate that a low-stratified secondary school system improves the probability of people with a migrant background/low social origin attaining a higher education degree. On the other hand, a stratified secondary school system reduces their chances regarding this educational stage. The provision of alternative access to an institution of higher education improves their likelihood of becoming higher education graduates. [less ▲]

Aufbauend auf einem aus dem Forschungsstand und seinen Defiziten abgeleiteten Mehrmethodenansatz richtet die Studie von Elena Kreutzer ihren Fokus auf die kulturwissenschaftliche Grenzgebiets-Forschung mit Blick auf Medienanalysen. Dabei liegt ihr thematischer Fokus auf der Darstellung von Migranten in den Printmedien Saarbrücker Zeitung, Républicain Lorrain und Luxemburger Wort der als hochgradig interkulturell umschriebenen europäischen Grenzregion SaarLorLux. Die inhalts- und diskursanalytischen Ergebnisse zeigten im Inter-Media-Vergleich folgende Einsichten und Erkenntnisse auf: Einerseits stellten sich über die inhaltsanalytischen Befunde heraus, dass sich die nationalen Systemkontexte in den Medieninhaltsanalysen zu journalistischen Darstellungsmerkmalen, Themenagenden sowie Handlungs- und Aussagenträgern widerspiegeln. Andererseits konnte die Arbeit über die Interdiskursanalyse übergreifende Denkmuster eruieren: Diese wurden in einem gemeinsamen Grundbestand an Kollektivsymbolen und Argumentationsmustern nachgewiesen, der von kulturenübergreifenden, aber dennoch medienspezifischen Elementen ergänzt wurde. Dabei zeigt sich in allen drei Printmedien, dass topische Muster nicht nur defensiv zur Abwehr restriktiver Bestimmungen bzw. Bestätigung vorherrschender Abwehrdiskurse verwendet wurden, sondern zeitweise auch offensiv zur Begründung zuzugs- oder integrationsfavorisierender Maßnahmen. Während auf Basis der Pro- und Contra-Tendenz in der saarländischen und lothringischen Tageszeitung jedoch ein verstärkt problem- und risikoorientierter Blick auf Migration und Migranten ermittelt wurde, richtete die luxemburgische Zeitung ihren Fokus phasenweise auf Potentiale und Ressourcen von Einwanderung und Vielfalt in Luxemburg. Die europäische Grenzregion als Ganzes in Betracht ziehende Zusammenhänge wurden weitgehend mittels grenzüberschreitender Hinweise in Sonderseiten hergestellt. Als Hinweis auf eine grenzüberschreitend kommunizierende Grenzregion genügt dieser Befund jedoch nicht [less ▲]

Hinsichtlich des demographischen Wandels und des Geburtenrückgangs in einigen Teilen der Großregion SaarLorLux ist die Migration in den vergangenen Jahren immer bedeutsamer geworden. Auch das zurzeit zu beobachtende Bevölkerungswachstum in der Großregion ist in erster Linie auf erhebliche Wanderungsgewinne zurückzuführen. <br />So belief sich zwischen 1990 und 2006 die Nettozuwanderung in die Großregion auf 558 500 Personen, wobei jedoch das Wanderungsgeschehen in unterschiedlichem Ausmaß in den einzelnen Teilregionen die Bevölkerungsentwicklung beeinflusste.

Dialogical Self Theory recognizes the interaction between self and others. The basic nature of human condition is indeed to be in indefinite and constant interdependence with the existence of “the other” and his experiences, thoughts, practices as well as his narrations. Yet, the character and degree of these interdependencies vary and fluctuate depending on the individuals, contexts and cultures. While the external dialogue occurs between people implicated in an overt interaction, the self happens in an individual’s mind as an internal dialogue. Individuals make sense of their lives through the narratives of crucial experiences in their lives, which makes the external dialogue discernible and easier to analyse compared to the internal dialogue not that easily tangible. Though, through an intergenerational interview between an adult daughter and her mother, we will try to assess and identify their individual internal dialogues within their narratives. Hence, to that end body language and behavioural indicators such as face expressions or silent thinking will be used, which may help and serve as guidelines to assess the intergenerational dialogical interaction between mother and adult child in a migrant context.

Issues of educational equity and opportunity cannot be understood without regard to special education, as a key response to disabilities, disadvantages, and difficulties. Likewise, globalization cannot be understood without regard to cross-border migration and minority group status in society. Illuminating the nexus of these, research into disproportionality in special education, defined as the over- or under-representation of particular ethnic groups in such programs, shows that this, too, has become a global phenomenon. Comparing Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the USA, this article explores international trends in migration and discusses the globalization of ethnic group disproportionality – as a primary indicator of inequity in education. We conclude by questioning the functions of special education in an era of globalization and identifying the challenges ahead that these findings indicate. [less ▲]

What is the impact of high-skilled migration on fertility and human capital in migrant's origin countries? This question is analyzed within an overlapping generations model where parents choose to finance higher education for a certain number of their children. It follows that families are composed of high-and low-skilled children who may both emigrate with a certain probability when they reach adulthood. It is found that a brain drain leads to a change in children's skill composition, with parents choosing to provide higher education to a larger number of their children. A calibration of the model suggests that, following a brain drain, the additional children benefiting from higher education might in the long run compensate for the loss of high-educated workers and lead to a brain gain.
