Abstract

The European-born children of immigrants, often referred to as the second
generation, play an important role in the academic debate about integration
and assimilation. The successful second generation, defined in terms of
possessing a higher education diploma and or professional position, receives
increasing attention. In this special issue, we will look at the most successful
group: the upcoming “elite” among the descendants of migrants from Turkey,
based on data gathered in the ELITES, Pathways to Success project. In this
research project we deliberately selected on the dependent variable: being
professionally successful in managerial jobs in the corporate business sector,
the corporate law sector and the education sector.
