Ethnic Minorities' Education and Occupational Attainment: Germany and Austria

Research question/goal: 

Research question/goal: This project is the German and Austrian part of an international comparative initiative on the investigation of ethnic disadvantage in the labour market and its causes. So far, the project covers more than 10 countries. Using comparable data sources in each of these countries an attempt is made to come to similar empirical analyses for different contexts in order to see whether and why the amount and mechanisms of ethnic stratification differ.
