Maurice Crul is the coordinator of the ELITES: Pathways to Success project. The Pathways to Success project analyses the position of successful second generation youth of Turkish and Moroccan descent in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The international ELITES project studies the most successful group in society: those already holding an elite position. It compares members of this group in Sweden, Germany, France and The Netherlands. He is particularly interested in those who by family origin were not yet part of the elite, either because of their working class background or because their parents were immigrants. The project will document their pathways to success and learn about how they influence and reshape today’s society.
