About the Author

Jens Schneider is an anthropologist and has worked extensively on ethnic and national identities in different parts of the world. He is coordinator of the TIES project – a major comparative study on second generation integration in various European countries – and also works as project coordinator in a community centre in Hamburg, Germany.

Maurice Crul is a political scientist and educational sociologist at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. For many years he has worked on the educational careers of immigrant children, being involved in several comparative studies with as much a cross-European as a transatlantic perspective. He is the main initiator and coordinator of the TIES project.
