cosponsored with Survey Research Center
The lecture will consider how we can link globalization and migration in Hungary and how these processes can be related to other regions of Europe. On the basis of a wide range of qualitative and quantitative data (cross-European and Hungarian surveys, different national and cross-national qualitative datasets) it will consider major structures and models of integration in Europe (assimilation, multiculturalism, selective exclusion) and the Hungarian specialties (e.g. ethnic migration and related ethnic privileges). The consequences and mechanisms of the relevant Hungarian model will be analyzed with regard to institutional arrangements, attitudes toward foreigners, perspectives of migrants themselves and what traps and conflicts can be envisaged concerning the integration of migrants and what European and global implications maybe drawn..
