Education and racism : a cross national inventory of positive effects of education on ethnic tolerance by LOUK. NEKUEE, SHERVIN HAGENDOORN( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book gives an inventory of factors contributing to ethnic prejudice in seven countries and the role of formal education among them on the basis of national surveys. It appears that education is crucial in all the countries surveyed and contributes to more tolerant views of ethnic and national minorities in Western European countries, Poland and the United States. The positive effects of education, however, do not always counter the negative effects of personality characteristics and conservative values on ethnic prejudice. Moreover, the negative effects of less formal education may be reinforced by perceived economical competition of ethnic minorities and thereby further bolster prejudiced views of the less educated. This indicates that formal education alone is not sufficient to change prejudiced views. Other forms of socialisation transmitting values leading to open-mindedness, and the ability to secure one's economic position have to support the positive effects of formal education as well."--Jacket
Muslim European youth : reproducing ethnicity, religion, culture by Steven Vertovec( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to this volume come from five European countries: Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. They combine national overviews of the positions of Muslim youths with detailed and local case studies. The chapters draw upon a range of anthropological and sociological theory, but are united in their rejection of essential ideas and approaches. Many draw upon ethnographic research with young Muslims and the institutions within they are often found, including government, political and religious associations, hostels and schools, as well as community and family. The contributions point to some of the wide variety of responses to the European contexts within which they have grown up as Muslims - such responses may be grounded in anti-racism and overtly political responses, may involve a rejection or a reinterpretation of the views and practices of their parents, may represent the maintenance of a largely symbolic allegiance to the wider Islamic world, or may demonstrate forms of increased piety and religious observance
Migration and transnational social spaces( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although globalisation brings work to (some) places all over the world, the growing international mobility of workers (and refugees) will be one of the strongest social and political challenges at the end of this century. At the same time and in part originated by globalisation and transnational migration, there is emerging a qualitative new social reality of 'transnational social spaces' built by pluri-locally spanned social institutions, life trajectories and the biographical projects in specific institutional settings and material infrastructures. This volume presents conceptual frameworks and empirical studies of transnational migration processes and the emergence of pluri-social transnational social spaces
Communities, networks, and ethnic politics by Ken Hahlo( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study explores ethnic community political participation in local politics in a North West British town. The analysis is located within the framework of the shift from Fordism to post-Fordism."--BOOK JACKET. "After 1977 the shift from Fordism to post-Fordism brought about a decline in ethnic political participation. While conferment of citizenship secured their right to stay in Britain, the rise in consumerism undermined the manufacturing sector on which they depended for work. With no ethnic political identity today, these communities are again politically disadvantaged."--BOOK JACKET
Positive action in action : equal opportunities and declining opportunities on Merseyside by Robert Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1997, this volume describes very clearly the various government policies to promote equal opportunity and the context of urban policy in which they have to be implemented. Robert Moore’s important study addresses the key issue of equal opportunities through a case study of events when a change in government policy appeared to hold out the prospect of new jobs for a highly deprived inner city area. It is a model for all social research of this kind. The result is a very detailed and objective analysis of the problem of implementing equal opportunity policies in practice

International migration is an issue of enduring interest and debate, as strong as ever in the 21st century.

Governance in multicultural societies by Gurharpal Singh( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last decade the study of multiculturalism has become an established field in political and social theory. This in-depth and engaging volume focuses on public policy and the dilemmas faced by the governments of increasingly diverse societies. Offering a theoretically and empirically rich collection of essays from some of the leading specialists in the field, it fills the gap between the social and political theory of multiculturalism and institutionally based national case studies. The book is distinctive in combining a robust theoretical introduction to recent developments in multiculturalism with a critical evaluation of contemporary public policy in a variety of countries in Europe, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Far East and South Africa. It incorporates a strong comparative dimension both within and across the case studies, with a regional focus enabling comparisons of regional, national and international experience."--Provided by publisher

Nationalism and exclusion of migrants : cross-national comparisons by M. (ed.) Gijsberts( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book fills a major gap by providing a unique account of the relationship between nationalist attitudes and the exclusion of migrants across a range of European countries, the US, Canada and Australia. Drawing on a variety of comparative surveys, the authors assess whether ethnic exclusionist reactions and nationalist attitudes are indeed systematically related across countries, and whether variations in such attitudes reflect country-level as well as individual-level differences."--Jacket

Measuring immigrant integration : diversity in a European city by Peter Reinsch( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do social researchers and other observers recognize successfully integrated immigrants? What presumptions are made to detect and clarify individual differences in integration? In this book the author develops a conceptual model that outlines the numerous normative, theoretical and methodological issues bound to the measurement of immigrant integration. He then uses this model to order and interpret survey data gathered in the Dutch city of Haarlem." "Peter Reinsch takes an essentially normative step by ranking residents according to their realization of three personal goals: self-reliance, contentment and sociability. These goals presumably reflect local objectives characteristic of the tolerant vision so often propagated in Dutch debates and policies. A broad selection of survey measures are then reviewed that represent divergent clarifications for immigrant integration. The book provides social observers with numerous guidelines to help systematize and ameliorate their analyses of the integration process, a process crucial for the future of European cities."--Jacket
