Transnationale Familien: Zur Entstehung, zum Ausmaß und zu den Konsequenzen der migrationsbedingten Eltern-Kind-Trennung in Familien aus den klassischen Gastarbeiterländern in Deutschland
Research on youth migration in Germany has given only few attention to transnational family relations so far. The present paper focuses on guest workers' immigration strategies in order to explain the development and consequences of transnational family relations in the context of the recruitment of “gastarbeiter” in Germany. After presenting relevant theoretical considerations, survey data is used to test hypotheses on the extent of transnational family relations and resulting parent-child separation due to migration. The analysis of qualitative data permits the investigation of the familial decision-making processes concerning migration and the consequences of separation from parents experienced during childhood. Finally, the results of the quantitative and the qualitative analyses are combined in a multilevel model to describe and to explain transnational family relations.
