Article
Full-text available
International migration of couples is rising. Still, there is little evidence on men’s and women’s domestic work hours before and after migration. This is despite the fact that domestic work provides deep insights into family life and, for migrants, is directly linked to integration. Therefore, this study examines how immigrant men and women change...
Article
Assimilation theories argue that social ties with majority-group members enhance the structural integration of ethnic minority members, whereas under certain conditions, coethnic social ties can also benefit minority members' socioeconomic outcomes. We examine these propositions through a social network perspective, focusing on friendship networks...

Die jährlichen IAB-BAMF-SOEP-Befragungen von Geflüchteten deuten darauf hin, dass es bei deren Arbeitsmarktintegration deutliche Fortschritte gibt. Dabei zeigen sich aber große Geschlechterunterschiede: Von den geflüchteten Männern, die seit 2013 nach Deutschland gekommen sind und mindestens fünf Jahre hier gelebt haben, sind 60 Prozent erwerbstäti...
Article
The authors examine cross-national variation in the ethnic gradient in aspirations among 14-year-olds in England, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden by using data from the Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Survey in Four European Countries, collected in 2009/2010. Results show that most ethnic minority groups are more likely to have university a...
Article
Objective: This paper examines gender differences in the labour market integration of newly arrived refugees in Germany. In particular, we focus on the heterogeneity in employment rates among female refugees. Background: Previous research has demonstrated that refugee women are disadvantaged on the labour market not only compared to their male cou...
Article
Ethnic differences in the endowment with social capital can exacerbate intergroup inequalities. Pursuing this argument, we first compare the educational compositions of friendship networks between Turkish minority and native majority adolescents in Germany. Second, we pick up notions from Oppositional Culture Theory (OCT) to examine how ethnic diff...
Article
Evidence suggests that books in the childhood home impact children’s educational and occupational attainments. Previous research finds this ‘book effect’ after conditioning on parental socio-economic status and national context. Human and cultural capital theories offer plausible explanations for this book effect. However, mechanisms underlying the...

We examine cross-national variation in the ethnic gradient in aspirations among 14-year-olds in England, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden by using data from the Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Survey in Four European Countries, collected in 2009/2010. Results show that most ethnic minority groups are more likely to have university aspiration...
Article
Educational expectations are a key predictor of educational attainment. Throughout adolescence, friends increasingly function as ‘significant others’ and, thus, can affect the development of these expectations. Although scholars often interpret the clustering of students with similar expectations within friendship networks as the outcome of peer in...

This series presents research findings based either directly on data from the German SocioEconomic Panel (SOEP) or using SOEP data as part of an internationally comparable data set (e.g. CNEF, ECHP, LIS, LWS, CHER/PACO). SOEP is a truly multidisciplinary household panel study covering a wide range of social and behavioral sciences: economics, socio...
Article
Die Arbeitsmarktposition türkischer Migrant*innen in Westdeutschland zwischen 1976 und 2013 Bei aktuellen Debatten um strukturelle Veränderungen des deutschen Arbeitsmarkts im Zuge des technologischen Wandels wird selten auf die Situation von Migrant*innen eingegangen. Vor diesem Hintergrund beschäftigt sich der Beitrag mit den Auswirkungen des str...

Although girls outperform boys in academic achievement in general, boys still have an advantage in STEM fields in many countries. One possible explanation for the female disadvantage in maths and their under-representation in technical professions is culturally embedded beliefs about female inferiority and male superiority in maths and related disc...
Article
Educational aspirations are generally based on past academic achievement and families’ endowment with the resources needed to reach targeted educational levels. However, although they perform worse at school and hold lower social status, previous research observes that some ethnic minorities tend to express higher educational ambitions than natives...
Article
Zusammenfassung Traditionelle Geschlechterrollen werden einerseits als Grund für die Benachteiligung von Mädchen gesehen, andererseits wird argumentiert, dass das schlechte Abschneiden von Jungen im Bildungssystem mit traditionellen Männlichkeitsvorstellungen zusammenhänge. Empirische Analysen der Daten aus den Projekten Junge Migranten im deutsche...

Previous international research has shown that educational goals are fundamental for explaining differences in the educational attainment between individuals. For a better understanding of educational inequality, it is therefore crucial to know more about the mechanisms leading to different expectations. Our paper contributes to this field of resea...
