Research on children of immigrants has focused mostly on the group that has been unsuccessful in school or in the labour market. The group that is however successful against all odds is growing. In this presentation Maurice Crul will show, based on the outcomes of his present ERC project, the substantial differences in pathways to success for Turkish second generation adolescents in four countries: Germany, France, Sweden and The Netherlands. The project findings are drawn from a large survey on the second generation in Europe (TIES) and 180 in-depth interviews with successful professionals. The outcomes show the importance of the national and local integration context in explaining both the size and the differences in pathways to success.
