Immigration without Integration

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the politics of migration and the Dutch paradox of integration. The more the first generation of migrants became absorbed into the Dutch welfare context, and the more they adapted to the Dutch structures for handling the state’s involvement in all aspects of social life, the less ‘integration’ was deemed to have worked. The chapter discusses the history of Moroccan migration and the changes in institutional forms of cultural incorporation over time. This chapter discusses the complexities of the political situations confronted by Moroccan Muslims in the country, the connections between Dutch institutions and Moroccan political alliances, and the changing generational contexts.
