Topic of Research:  In search for work, recognitive stakes and identity transformation: a comparative approach to
refugees’ professional careers in France and Bulgaria

E-mail: albena.tcholakova@laposte.net

This thesis deals with the issues refugees face in accessing work in France and Bulgaria. The thesis focuses in particular on two sets of issues, namely, the ways in which the refugees’ professional careers are reoriented in their encounters with the social contexts of the host country; and the identity transformations that are involved in these reorientations of their professional careers. The first part of this thesis aims to characterise the specific traits of the refugees’ search for work. The thesis contends that this search has to be conceived as a multilayered social experience, and proposes a way to theoretically and methodologically connect its various dimensions (subjective/objective, micro/macro, local/global). The second part compares “societal effects” in France and Bulgaria in order to explain why particular types of professional careers are predominant in each country. It also explains why some factors play a role in the fact that certain refugees are developing certain type of careers in one country but not in the other. The third part deals with identity transformations in terms of reactions to denials of recognition, and in terms of the work performed by individuals to preserve their identity.
