Mixed methodology for the identification of a first generation, transnational, minority elite

Hanna Edit Kónya, Eliza Hajnalka Bodor-Eranus


The heterogenous self-identifications of the group members, the multitude of interactions, the mix of personal and community interests and the parted opinion about the role of migrant members of the community create a social setting urging for a research methodology specifically developed for this fieldwork. Current article presents a mixed methodology using social network analysis, representative survey and qualitative interviews for the identification of the elite. Seen the methods individually, three very different definitions are provided, while confronting the results allows for a more accurate definition and identification of the elite.
