When can migrant workers be said to have successfully arrived on the German labour market? An exploratory study by students at the University of Kassel makes it clear that, although securing employment that is subject to mandatory social insurance contributions is necessary for indicating such a status, this may not be a sufficient criterion in itself. A more pertinent question is whether and how migrants succeed in establishing themselves in occupationally structured areas of the labour market.
