Transnational educational careers and social positioning between Brazil and Germany
Sara Fürstenau, Javier Carnicer
Affluent young people are "international students" and "internationally mobile" - whereas poor young people are "migrants" and "economic refugees". This division is also prevalent in scientific approaches.
But what are young people that search for education opportunities abroad without an affluent family backing them? This study examines and traces their life journeys, strategies and networks by way of interviews - and compares them to those of more affluent families.
