Summary Integration of newcomers is a major challenge for contemporary Europe. The 'second generation' - children born of immigrant parentage - is crucial in this process, for they constitute a growing and increasingly vocal segment of the metropolitan youth. This timely book offers cross-national comparisons and a new perspective on the position of the European second generation in education, labour, social relations, religion and identity formation, drawing on data collected by the TIES survey in fifteen cities across eight European countries.
