“America is the dream of so many things”
Images and experiences of German speaking au pairs in the United States

: Toni: ‘I have seen this in many American families. They go to McDonald’s, and then the children get a hamburger, Chik’n Nuggets and two ice creams. They cannot eat all this, but it doesn’t matter because they only like it like this, as they eat a little bit from everything. Such a waste of money!’ (2. Int. 14: 306) Even when quoted, Toni’s criticism can be understood as a general dislike for wasting resources and a lack of ‘green thinking’ and something like a well-mannered modesty. Altogether, the examples show that, during the stay, the perception shifted from

The importance of origin and destination country skills for labour market attachment of immigrants from Pakistan, Iran and Turkey

observed that 43% of the immigrant groups considered arrived in Denmark with at most primary schooling, while 19% has further education, i.e. either a vocational or an advanced degree from their country of origin. The distribution of educational attainment obtained in the destination country is more dispersed with two thirds who have not completed any schooling nor education and 25% who have completed further education. Immigrants generally have a very limited amount of labour market experience from their home country at the time of arrival. This is partly explained by

Narratives of ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ and Urban Transformations in Oslo

negatively evaluated by the participants, associated with insecurity, crime, social problems and failed integration. The negative impact of the category ‘immigrants’ on the evaluation of urban areas becomes particularly clear when areas where ‘many’ ‘immigrants’ live are designated as ‘ghettos’. On the maps where participants indicated where they could/could not envisage living, Grønland was often marked with an ‘n’ (‘never’). The reasons they gave were either directly or indirectly linked to perceptions of ‘too many immigrants’ in the neighbourhood. One participant
