This first publication of the TIES Project (Towards the Integration of the European Second Generation) examines the social stratification and views of the second Dutch generation of Turkish and Moroccan origin living in the Netherlands. Drawing on research carried out in 2006–7 the Dutch-born children of immigrants from Turkey and Morocco in Amsterdam and Rotterdam and a comparison group of young people whose parents were born in the Netherlands, this volume sheds important light on the lives of the second-generation Muslim youth coming of age and making a transition from education to the labor market.
