This Researcher will be employed in research project The Third Generation: Dissimilation from Origins and Assimilation into Destination (ThirdGen), selected by the European Research Council (ERC)’s Consolidator programme and funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

This comprehensive and novel research project will study the seldom-studied third generation to reveal the enduring impact and transformative influence of migration. ThirdGen’s conceptual perspective will shed light on generational change and continuity by comparing the grandchildren of migrants to their grandparents and non-migrant counterparts in the origin country: Turkey. It will consider multiple destinations: Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Austria, UK, Switzerland, Denmark and Sweden.

ThirdGen will examine grandchildren of Turkish guest workers, the largest non-EU diaspora with well over five million members in Europe. As the third generation is coming of age, ThirdGen will survey two gendered domains, namely socioeconomic attainment and family processes, i.e., intergenerational care arrangements and support, gender attitudes, religiosity and behaviours, comparing them to their non-migrant Turkish counterparts.

This innovative large-scale and multi-sited examination of the grandchildren of guest workers will generate invaluable data to address questions on the differential patterns and generic processes of intergenerational transmission with a special focus on the third generation across origin and destination countries. The project is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on sociology, demography, social psychology and migration studies. The findings will inform policies and improve public understanding and awareness of the long-term transformative impact of migration.
