This concluding chapter summarizes the very rich analysis and the main findings of the country-specific chapters. Despite the very different datasets and sampling techniques and sometimes different phrasing of the questions and measures, most of the country-specific researchers do find similar tendencies of immigrants’ assimilation. In many cases the immigrants’ values converge to the local context within a generation. The chapter highlights these similarities, as well as the most interesting and striking differences found across countries.

Keywords: immigrant; assimilation; generation; dataset
