Abstract

The s.c. “Second Generation” of migrants is one of the most attractive sociological topic and on it, nowadays, it has turned the focal point of the integration process, once focused on the new comers’ adaptation. This aim of the research was to analyze the entering into the active life of a sample of Filipino youths, centring the attention on the access into the labour market. Through the cooperation between the ISMU Foundation of Milan and the Scalabrini Migration Center of Manila, it was intended to realize a transnational study. On one side, it has been analyzed the educational and professional trajectories of Filipino migrants’ children born in Italy or came in Italy in the first years of their life; on the other side, it has been analyzed the experiences of the “left behind” children who are particularly exposed to the s.c. “culture of migration”. The picture that emerged from the study is rich of ambivalent elements. These youths are victims of the Italian society prejudices, but also of the conformist expectations of their ethnic group, both allied in proposing an integration model based on the emulation of the first generation. At the same time, they carry a double pride: the pride coming from the faithfulness to their home culture and the pride coming from the ambition to make younger the Filipino model of incorporation in the Italian society and economy.
