From Work to Welfare: Institutional Arrangements Shaping Turkish Marriage Migrantsâ€™ Gendered Trajectories into a New Society
Vibeke Jakobsen and
International Migration Review, 2017, vol. 51, issue 4, 964-998
Using a mixed methods approach, this article examines gendered patterns of employment and of unemployment benefit uptake among Turkish marriage migrants in Denmark. The results show that men use coâ€ ethnic networks to access entry positions. Subsequent eligibility for unemployment benefits enable these men to search for better jobs. Women enter employment more slowly and tell of such entry being related to entering the unemployment insurance system, enabling them to periodically conform to gendered expectations as homemakers. Pakistani marriage migrants display similar patterns, indicating the centrality of this institutional arrangement in lowâ€ skilled marriage migrantsâ€™ active adaptation to a new society.
