Abstract

This study examines the causal factors to explain the different integration patterns of the Turkish immigrant community in the Netherlands and Germany.The Dutch and German Turkish communities offer an excellent opportunity for comparative analysis of integration, since they share many socio-cultural characteristics but differ in their level of integration. It suggests that the Turkish immigrants in the Netherlands are more integrated into the host society than their counterparts in Germany due to the difference in macro-environmental factors such as the political, legal framework and economic factors in these countries.
