Are there behaviour differences between these two groups? What are the motivations for remitting? Do first and second generation migrants of Turkish descent in Germany remit money to their home country? Research Questions: underlying motivations for remitting behaviour quantity of transnational activities among first and second generation migrants quantitative research is rare and geographically limited to the USA (Portes, Guarnizo and Haller, 2002) major studies focus solely on people engaged in transnational activities (Snel, Engbersen, Leerkes, 2006) not reflective of reality because the quantity of transmigrants is overestimated (“exaggeration of their scope”; Portes, 2001:182) The Critique of Transnationalism likely to increase in scale and importance in the future (Vertovec, 2004) facilitated through technical advancements in a globalised world (Portes, Guarnizo and Haller, 2002) economic ties, particularly remittance transfers and their scale (Guarnizo, 2003) quantity of relationships with home nations (“transmigrant”; Glick Schiller, Basch and Blanc-Szanton, 1992:1) 4 5 traditions and persistence over time (Page & Mercer, 2012) in host country; loss of social status due to discrimination (Sana, 2005) in home country; culturally (Stark, 2009) social status extreme remittance motives imply altruism or self-interest and gradations of the two extremes (Lucas and Stark, 1985) Remittance Motives sustained immigration and persistence of transnational activity across generations (De Haas and Plug, 2006) unable to constitute explicit determinants for transnational activity (Snel, Engbersen, Leerkes, 2006) successive generations will be transnationally active to a lesser extent due to integration (Levitt & Glick Schiller, 2004) 7 Country: Germany City: Lübeck (Moisling) major immigration country liberal, young woman from dominant culture Cross-cultural research transformative: positive transformation, awareness critical realist: mechanisms and structures of social relations critical theory Key questions: How does it happen (causal)? What ought it to be? How extensive is the phenomenon (empirical)? Positionality might create bias focus group: generation, gender, family long-term first generation migrants (>20y) and independent children as second generation migrants questionnaire survey: postal, internet-based and personal mixed quantitative and qualitative methods Hypothesis technical advancements loss of social status in host society culture and traditions There will be no significant difference between remitting behaviour of first and second generation migrants due to: intergenerational learning final draft by early Jan 2014 1.draft by early Nov = 12 weeks main study = 6-8 weeks translation, pilot phase = 3-4 weeks field research, Germany: methods, ethics = 10 weeks preparatory research, NZ: Research Start: 20.May 2013 BEFORE: After: Thank you! 3 6 8 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge (2010).
