Netherlands (1970-2021) (1.0 FTE)
Job description We are seeking a candidate for a PhD project titled “Roots and routes to migrants' economic participation in the Netherlands: the constraining and facilitating impact of home and host society contexts (1970-2021).” This project utilizes a historical approach to investigate how migrants' home and host society contexts and their interplay have facilitated or hampered the sustainable economic participation of different groups of African migrants in the Netherlands. We focus on two specific groups: Somali refugees, who have widely struggled in the Netherlands, and Ghanian economic migrants, who have experienced greater success. By “economic participation” we mean both labour market participation as well as self-employment. Economic participation is sustainable if (self-)employment is long term and income is sufficient to cover living costs (i.e., the opposite of precarious work). For more information, see the detailed project description.
