Super-diversity vs assimilation: How complex diversity in majority-minority cities challenges the assumptions of assimilation

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Children of immigrants nowadays no longer integrate into the majority group, but into a large amalgam of ethnic groups. Next to the diversification of ethnic groups, we see diversification within ethnic groups in the second and third generations. Crul focuses on intergenerational social mobility patterns given that they are key to existing grand theories of assimilation. He argues that super-diversity theory can only partially build an alternative theoretical perspective and that we also need to borrow from the intersectional approach and the integration context theory.
