Four Generations of Turkish Families in Europe and Turkey

"500 Families: Migration Histories of Turks in Europe" project explores migration processes, the multi-generational transmission of social, cultural, religious and economic resources, values and behavior.

The research will be based around Turkish immigrant and non-migrant families, their descendants in European countries and those who remained in Turkey, and will involve survey interviews with some 6000 family members across four generations.

This four-year project has been funded by NORFACE (New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Co-operation in Europe) and involves research partners from United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands and Turkey.
