Emigration Patterns and Determinants of Children of Immigrants in Switzerland


Existing studies on emigration either focus on the first generation or the total migrant population. Analysing the Swiss context, this article explores the emigration patterns and determinants of children of immigrants in comparison with other subpopulations. We use original longitudinal data (obtained by linking the Structural Survey and the Population and Household Statistics) that provide information on emigration flows as well as on the migratory background. Results differ significantly according to the migratory status considered.

Rereading Diaspora: Reverberating Voices and Diasporic Listening in Italo-Australian Digital Storytelling

& Pesman 2005 , Cosmini-Rose 2008 ). Even the characteristic common to most definitions of diaspora, namely, the underlying desire to return home, is problematic. In the Australian context, many Italians did not travel to Australia with an intention to return, largely because of the belief that the new country offered greater economic opportunity ( Jupp 2001 ), and most continue to have no desire to permanently return (see Ben-Moshe et al. 2012 ; Cosmini-Rose 2008 , p. 43). Additionally, the flow of migration from Italy in the past 5 years has mainly constituted of

global economic factors to seek work outside of their countries of origin) has become a key indicator of how liberal states use traditional conceptions of citizenship to categorise and regulate ‘desirable’ and ‘undesirable’ flows of human labour and capital in an era of globalisation. On the one hand, this has promoted new modes of citizenship, with many migrants holding dual/multiple citizenships and having a high degree of cultural capital and mobility. At the other end of the scale, the case of international students and temporary workers, as well as the provision

Contemporary Citizenship: Four Types

radical students, strident feminists, foreigners, welfare scroungers, the unemployed and so on. But these resentments have little to do with traditional forms of class protest in any direct fashion, and they are generalised as an aspect of modern consumerism. Obviously, the business cycle may contribute to the temporal flow of resentment, but it is not central to the issue that modern consumption promotes the display of status distinction not based on merit or virtue, but largely on luck. The connection between citizenship and virtue is broken by the vagaries of the
