    Der Beitrag beschäftigt sich mit der Lebens- und Arbeitssituation von „illegalisierten Kameruner MigrantInnen“ in Deutschland. Neben der Analyse von Wegen in die Illegalität liegt der Schwerpunkt der Untersuchung auf den Möglichkeiten der Legalisierung des Aufenthaltsstatus. Die ethnologische Fallstudie macht deutlich, inwieweit individuelle Familienbildungsprozesse durch strukturelle Faktoren eines vorgegebenen gesetzlichen Rahmens erheblich mit beeinflusst werden. Dabei scheint es eine Tendenz zu geben, dass Frauen versuchen ihren Status über die Geburt und die Anerkennung von Kindern zu legalisieren, während Männer mehrheitlich eine deutsche Frau heiraten und während dieser Ehe ein Kind zeugen, um einen Aufenthaltsstatus zu erlangen. Der Artikel basiert auf einer viermonatigen Feldforschung (teilnehmende Beobachtung, informelle Gespräche und Tiefeninterviews) in Berlin.
