 Abstract: Organisations are important gatekeepers in the labour market inclusion ofimmigrants and their children. Research has regularly documented ethnicdiscrimination in hiring decisions. Aiming to further our understanding of the role oforganisations in influencing the professional trajectories of individuals of immigrantorigin, this paper investigates the recruitment practices of public administrations.Drawing on approaches from organisational sociology and a qualitative case study ofpublic administrations in the German state of Berlin, the article identifies three crucialelements of organisational decision-making affecting the recruitment of staff ofimmigrant origin: decisions regarding advertisement strategies, formal criteria, andindividual candidates. Further, the article shows the underlying decision-makingrationalities and the role of organisational contexts and ethnic stereotypes forrecruitment-related decisions.
