Recensies en Artikelen

"This beautifully crafted comparative analysis skilfully combines structural factors and migrants' agency in its approach. The result is a rich depiction of the life trajectories of Senegambian migrants arriving to Europe in search of a future." -- Francisco Javier Moreno Fuentes, Research Fellow, Spanish National Research Council, Madrid “Carefully prepared qualitative fieldwork and clearly written research results make this comparative case study highly useable. Inge van Nieuwenhuyze contributes great value to the European literature in the field of contemporary migration and post-migration dynamics.” -- Marco Martiniello, Director of the Center for Ethnic and Migration Studies, University of Liège and FRS-FNRS “This book offers fascinating and very readable insight into how undocumented immigrants into Europe manage to access labour and housing markets, along with the varying migrant situations and experiences between countries.” -- Chris Hamnett, Professor of Geography, King’s College London

Getting by in Europe's Urban Labour Markets

Senegambian Migrants' Strategies for Survival, Documentation and Mobility

Deze dissertatie onderzoekt twee belangrijke sociale veranderingen die Europese steden in de laatste twee decennia hebben ondergaan: postindustriële economische herstructurering en nieuwe immigratiestromen. Inge van Nieuwenhuyze bespreekt drie nieuwe elementen van de migratieproblematiek, die tot dusver relatief onderbelicht zijn geweest: een dynamisch overzicht van de veranderingen, de invloed van de nationale welzijns- en wetgevingskaders en het belang van de opvangmogelijkheden buiten de arbeidsmarkt.
Het materiaal is verkregen uit 81 diepte-interviews met Senegalezen en Gambianen woonachtig in Antwerpen en Barcelona.
