Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt

Abstrakt

Moved by a genuine interest in the individual's perspective, this research project is an exploratory
qualitative research that has the aim of gaining insight into how international graduate students in
Denmark come to make decisions about their future lives in the vast ocean of opportunities and possibilities in the modern society.
Founded by some considerations about the meta theories conceptualization of the individual, this
research project will provide a theoretical background offered by Zygmunt Bauman, Ulrich Beck and
Anthony Giddens. We are interested in exploring the meaning-making and decision-taking
processes of the individual by using a Grounded Theory approach. The methodological approach
allows us to gain insight into how these individuals make sense of their social world and understand
what influences and motivates the interviewees in this process. The empirical data consists of in
depth open-ended interviews in order to be able to understand the meaning-making and decision
taking process from the individual’s perspective.
