When nationalism meets soft skills: Towards a comprehensive framework for explaining ethno-migrant inequality in the Dutch labour market

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to outline a framework of explanation. Why is
it so difffijicult for people with a ‘non-Western’ background to participate
in the labour market on equal terms with people without a migration
background? There are diffferent ways of structuring the various explanations
in the literature. On the one hand, inspired by Bourdieu, Siebers will
distinguish various forms of capital – human, social, cultural – that may
give access to economic capital, such as getting a well-paid or satisfying
job. On the other hand, Siebers will discuss indirect discrimination
when non-job-related capitals, such as social and cultural capital, play a
role in harming the chances for people with a ‘non-Western’ migration
background to access economic capital.
