Abstract: The present thesis focuses on the analysis of ethnic inequality in vocational education. It contributes to the current research by investigating questions about the impact of context as a moderator between individual resources and educational achievement. The analysis contains questions concerning three characteristics of the vocational education system of different federal states, as well as on the characteristics of historical time as context. Thus, this thesis focuses on the following research questions: How large are the differences in ethnic inequality in vocational education in the different federal states within Germany, and what role do individual resources play in explaining the inequality in the different federal states? Can the characteristics of the different vocational education systems within Germany explain the differences in the level of ethnic inequality in vocational education between the federal states? How does the level of ethnic inequality and the role of individual resources develop in different immigration cohorts and different migrant groups? The results show that context does play a role in the degree of ethnic inequality in vocational education, since the degree of ethnic inequality varies between federal states within Germany and between historical periods. But context affects migrants of the first generation much more than migrants of the second generation.
