Structural Mobility, the New Working Class, and the Ethnicity (as Social Construction)

I’m not either one of Kemény’s followers or experts. This is why the aim of this paper is not to give a comprehensive view on Kemény’s oeuvre but to highlight three research topics which made him a pioneer in this field not only in national but also international comparison. These three topics are the following: social mobility, the concept and theory of the new working class, and the research of gipsies, within this, the interpretation of ethnicity as social construction. These two latter fundamentally influenced my then and latter research so I give them more attention.
