Maurice Crul is General Coordinator of the international project, The Integration of the European Second Generation (TIES). He is also the principal investigator of the Children of Immigrants in School (CIS) project, which looks at second-generation Dominicans in New York and second-generation Moroccans in Amsterdam. Dr. Crul has published extensively on the educational careers of children of immigrants, both nationally and internationally.
Report examines the findings of a survey conducted by The Integration of the European Second Generation (TIES), which compares data for second-generation Turks with parents of comparable backgrounds across contextual factors in seven European countries to explore why educational outcomes vary within the target group.
This policy brief examines the social mobility prospects of the children of Turkish immigrants across five EU nations—Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and the Netherlands—and seeks to identify institutional arrangements that promote their academic success and transition into the labor market.
There is an ongoing debate over the children born to Europe's guest workers of the 1960s and 1970s: Can they move up the educational ladder, or will they form a new underclass in Europe's largest cities? Maurice Crul of the University of Amsterdam compares outcomes for second-generation Turkish children across five countries.
