Project collaborator: MA Anna Krämer
Tutor: Zübeyda Elbey
Funding: Hessian Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts, Research Focus: Women's and Gender Studies
The research project investigates the access to the labour market of highly qualified women who have fled their homes. It is a pilot study in Hesse. The following research questions, among others, guide the explorative study: How are the target group's chances on the labour market shaped? To what extent are they actually perceived as labour market policy addressees? How do labour market policy actors view this group? What strategies do migrant women develop in the context of asylum in view of their labour market situation? What experiences do highly qualified female migrants have on the labour market? How do highly qualified women manage to contribute their skills and qualifications? Qualitative interviews are used to ascertain the subjective interpretations of the women who have fled and the perspectives of various labour market actors. The study is designed at the interface of sociological labour market, gender, migration and asylum research.
