TIES: The Integration of the European Second Generation
Immigration and the subsequent integration of newcomers is one of the foremost challenges for Europe's increasingly heterogeneous cities. The integration of the second generation - the children born of immigrant parentage in the country of migration - is crucial to this process, for they constitute a growing share of metropolitan youth today.

The TIES project studies the topic of integration, be it economic, social, educational, or in terms of identity. Since little internationally comparable statistical material has been gathered on the second generation, the main objective has been to create the first systematic and rigorous European dataset of more than 10,000 respondents in fifteen European cities - relevant not only for a better general understanding, but also for the development of policies at all levels of government.

TIES is an international survey on the descendants of immigrants from Turkey, Ex-Yugoslavia, and Morocco in fifteen European cities in eight countries. But TIES is also the common roof for a number of related activities around research and training, transfer of knowledge, communication, and policy recommendations.
