    Armutsreisende aus Osteuropa sind speziellen Risiken ausgesetzt
    (Eidgenössische Migrationskommission, 2022) Temesvary, Zsolt [in: Terra Cognita]
    Laut einer aktuellen Studie der Fachhochschule Nordwestscheiz FHNW kommt ein Viertel der in der Schweiz lebenden ausländischen obdachlosen Menschen aus Mittelosteuropa. Ohne Arbeits- und Mietvertrag haben die osteuropäischen Armutsreisenden keinen Anspruch auf eine schweizerische Aufenthaltsbewilligung, folglich werden sie von den meisten Sozialleistungen automatisch ausgeschlossen. Wegen mehrfacher Vulnerabilität erfahren diese Menschen in schweizerischen Städten oft Strassenobdachlosigkeit und absolute Armut.

    Hungarian Homeless People in Basel: Homelessness and Social Exclusion from a Lifeworld-oriented Social Work Perspective
    (FEANTSA, 20.12.2019) Temesvary, Zsolt [in: European Journal of Homelessness]
    Although their exact number is unknown, supposedly dozens of destitute Hungarian homeless people currently live in Basel, Switzerland. Despite their vulnerability and severe social needs, social workers and other experts know little about their living conditions. This paper aims to explore the dimensions of time and space as well as the characteristics of personal and institutional relationships of Hungarian homeless people living in Basel. The study applies Hans Thiersch’s lifeworld-oriented perspective on social work that contributes to the better understanding of the affected homeless peoples` daily struggles. The study is based on semi-structured qualitative interviews carried out with both homeless people and social workers in the institutions of homeless care. The paper concludes that due to the ‘protectionist’ mechanisms of Swiss social policy, unregistered Hungarian homeless people are excluded from most cantonal social and health services. However, their daily routine is strictly structured by the opening hours of the low-threshold services and their human relationships are limited to other homeless people as well as social workers at soup kitchens and day-care services.

    Egy jobb élet reményében: Magyar hajléktalanok Bázelben
    (22.09.2019) Temesvary, Zsolt [in: Párbeszéd Szociális Szakmai Folyóirat]
    This paper aims to introduce the living conditions, the migration-related motivations and the fulfilment of previous expectations of Hungarian homeless people living in Basel. The research was based on participatory observations conducted in social institutions as well as on semi-structured qualitative interviews carried out with both homeless people and social workers. The main findings of the study reveal that the Hungarian homeless community is rather heterogeneous considering the member’s age, background and the general circumstances of living. Despite of this heterogeneity, the common language and cultural background create a relatively strong bond among the affected people. Although Basel is not a primary target of economic migration, the tolerance of the authorities and the people, and the favourable living conditions affect a lot of Hungarian and other Eastern-European destitute people to the city. The previous expectations for living a better life and finding a job are regularly not fulfilled and people are often trapped in homelessness and poverty.
