|title of a dissertation project||Integration of migrants' children in the Czech Republic|
Successful integration of immigrants and their children is today among the foremost challenges in European political debates. It was assumed for a long time, that integration of immigrant’s children into the hosting society would happen „naturally“. Comparative research from the last years disputed these assumptions. There is starting current discussion whether these children will be able to move up the educational ladder or whether they will form a new underclass in Europe's largest cities. Proposed project in Czech environment represents one of the first research projects trying to analyze integration of foreigners from the one and half and the second generation on the example of two in the Czech Republic most frequent groups of foreign children of the Ukrainian and of the Vietnamese origin. This research will be focused on one of the most important but often overlooked aspect of integration which is the identity construction and the feeling of identification and belonging towards host society. Process of identity construction will be studied on the background of race, ethnics, religion, intergeneration relations, political and economical questions. However as well in the relation to the ancestral homelands (transnational identity). The study will also question the role of institutional settings (institutional approach) and integration policies (citizenship approach) on the integration proces. The aim of the research is to contribute to the discussion on the integration idicators and to focus on the question what the socioeconomic indicators are saying about inclusion and participation within the broad society and vice versa. Research will follow process of identity forming and integration as well as the final result. In another words not only how the ability and quality of identity construction is influencing job selection, initiation of social contacts, but also what impact identity forming has on the way how children of immigrants are integrated within the dominant society (integration strategies).
