Family, marriage, ageing, and poverty are at the heart of migration studies. Human capital, education and employment are of equal importance. The income differentials between immigrants and native populations are widely known and tested in Europe and North America. Immigrants with distinct cultural backgrounds often resort to their transnational networks for marriages. Yet, the host societies may alter the behaviour in partner choice, endogamy and family relations. In this book, we brought together a select group of researchers investigating marriage patterns, family structures, ageing and health concerns as well as educational patterns and career concerns among Turkish movers in Europe.
