about

The authors provide a comparison of the situation of young adults who are the children of international migrants in Britain, France and Germany. The evidence is primarily based upon a common sociological survey undertaken in each of the three countries. The initial chapter presents the three main theoretical approaches to the incorporation of international migrants and their children. The core of the book examines the relative explanatory power of each in relation to a wide range of themes: language use; education; training and the labour market; politics and religion; social interaction and media; culture and identity.
