European comparative ways of using family histories

Delcroix, Catherine (2005) European comparative ways of using family histories. In: Workshop on Comparative Biographical Research, 24-25 November 2005, London. (Unpublished)



I am going to talk about a relatively new method - cases histories of families. I have been using it in several research projects, with very rich results. I will start with a definition of family case history. Then I will proceed to describe how it has been used in a comparative European Research Project on poverty and precariousness among migrant families living in Italy, Great-Britain, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Ireland and France. I will focus mostly on sociological findings in different contexts of inequality and migration.
