The proposal addresses the quality of life in ethnic business and the chances of the next generation to accumulate educational and cultural resources in order to integrate successfully into the society. Biographical interviews with parents and children in ethnic business will explore the quality of life of the parents' generation and its relationship to the children's process of accumulating educational and cultural resources, especially taking into account the women's situation in ethnic businesses. Statistical and secondary data analysis will frame the selection of the sample and the interview analysis. Expected is knowledge on family strategies that prevent or support the accumulation of resources by the children. On the basis of these results suggestions will be formulated for policy measures aiming at minimizing the inheritance of inequality in the next generation, maintaining at the same time, the benefits of ethnic business which makes social and economic integration a possibility for migrants threatened by exclusion.
