Research output: Contributions to collected editions/worksPublished abstract in conference proceedingsResearch


The three-year qualitative research project ‘Digital and analogue media for the addressing of refugee parents as target-group of ECEC” (duration: 02/2019-01/2022) at Leuphana University Lüneburg addresses refugee parents as a target group of early education. The project asks about the role of digital interaction and communication media regarding the guidance and dissemination of information about ECER they provide for refugee parents. The study comprises three parts: a) 12 qualitative guided interviews with refugee mothers and fathers, b) 12 qualitative guided expertinterviews (cf. Helfferich 2014, p. 570) with professionals from migration and family-specific counseling institutions as well as organizations of the social economy, each conducted from March 2019 to June 2020, and c) a media analysis of information media for addressing refugee parents. This abstract presents results of the analysis of the expert interviews. The analysis was carried out by means of structuring qualitative content analysis (cf. Kuckartz, 2018)
