Still, they are, particularly in Germany, regarded as signs of ‘parallel worlds’. Surveys commissioned by public authorities record how Turks socialize with other Turks rather than members of the wider society (Seifert 1996:427). However, another survey shows how an increasing number of Turks (up from 30 to 40 per cent between 1999 and 2000) feel equally attached to Germany and Turkey (ZfT 2000a). And importantly, the naturalization rates are rapidly increasing. In 1990, less than 1 per cent of Turkish citizens had obtained German citizenship.
How does the receiving country’s particular political institutional context impact the scope of transnational political practices? One dimension of this question is whether or not migrants’ transnational engagement depends on the extent to which they have obtained political rights in their country of settlement. It could be expected that when migrants acquire citizenship and political rights they would concentrate on using those and leave their homeland’s politics behind. Yet, new research among migrants in the US finds that migrants’ transnational political engagement does not depend on whether or not they have American citizenship (Guarnizo and Portes 2001).
Indeed, they are the sort of actors who may seek to influence events in their homeland without direct interaction with the state of either their receiving country or homeland, but through inter-societal penetration in order to bring about a change in another society. 8 Similar transnational activism by global social movements does not simply become politically relevant when it intersects with state behaviour (see Wapner 1995:39–40, 312). Also, within migration studies there is a debate on who influences whom.
