Lecture by the authors: Professor Richard Alba and Professor Nancy Foner of the Graduate School, City University New York will present their new book Strangers No More, Immigration and the Challenges of Integration in North America and Western Europe. Introduction: Professor Maurice Crul (VU) Referent: Professor Jan Willem Duyvendak (UvA).

Strangers No More is one of the first books to compare immigrant integration on both sides of the Atlantic. Focusing on low-status newcomers and their children, it examines how they are making their way in four critical European countries—France, Germany, Great Britain, and the Netherlands—as well as in the United States and Canada. This systematic, data-rich comparison reveals their progress and the barriers they face in an array of institutions—from labor markets and neighborhoods to educational and political systems—and considers the controversial questions of religion, race, identity, and intermarriage.

Reception afterwards.
