Project: The integration of the European second generation (TIES) [concluded]
Liesbeth Heering, Tineke Fokkema, George Groenewold
The principal objective of the TIES project is to provide a cross-national comparison of the second generation in Europe. Various aspects of the integration process among children of immigrants in 15 cities in eight European countries are analysed based on an international comparative survey. A central question that will be addressed is how cultural and structural integration interrelate.
The TIES project started in 2005. The second generation refers to children of immigrants born in the immigration country, having followed their entire education there, and aged between 18 and 35 years at the time of the survey. The survey is held in eight European countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Turks are surveyed in seven countries; the survey in Spain focuses on Moroccans. An additional second-generation group, viz. children of Moroccans or children of former-Yugoslavs, is surveyed in five countries. In each country a native comparison group is included in addition to the second-generation groups. The Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (IMES) at the University of Amsterdam is the general coordinator of the TIES project. NIDI coordinates the international survey and is responsible for the Dutch survey. The project will result in internationally comparative studies focusing on topics such as education, labour, discrimination and identity.
