Abstract

The integration of immigrants is one of the major aspects of the overall integration of European societies. The EFFNATIS project was interested in the question of whether there are different national modes of immigrant integration and, if so, what effect they have on the integration of children of international migrants (CIM). The analysis of national modes of immigrant integration was done for Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland and The Netherlands. Marked national differences were found, but also some European convergences which are connected to all states being welfare states. Three countries were chosen to inquire into the relevance of the national context for an empirical study of the integration of CIM: France, Germany and Great Britain. Secondary analyses of existing data were done for the remaining countries. The three empirical field studies aiming at a detailed picture of integration of CIM in the age group of 16 _ 25 were supplemented by an analysis of European Labour Force data relating to the education and employment of CIM.
