This book is essential reading for anyone who claims to be well informed about how the children of immigrants are fairing. Data collected by the TIES survey in fifteen cities across eight European countries provide a vivid picture of how children of immigrants from Turkey, Morocco and the former Yugoslavia are progressing in local domains, like education, labour, social relations, religion and identity formation. By asking if the integration context matters – and, if so, how – we answer questions concerning the importance of institutional arrangements in education, the labour market and other important domains in receiving societies, as they affect migrants today and for generations to come. This book is both theoretically and empirically important, as no other work has been able to compare these second generation groups along key indices of integration in so many European countries. It will complement the debates concerning the second generation, which have been dominated by American analysts studying immigration to the US.
