Abstract:Turkish migrants are no homogeneous group. This conclusion resulted out of previous research that attempted to draw inferences about this migrant group by analysing it as a whole. Since generalisations are stronger the more individual differences are taken into account, this thesis is looking at first and second generation Turkish migrants respectively in order to reach conclusive statements about their performance on the German labour market. The research question under investigation is looking at the difference in labour market integration between first and second generation Turkish migrants in Germany. By analysing their integration not just on labour market aspects, but on determinants of labour market integration (cultural, social, identificational and educational) as well, a context is provided for that allows for strong conclusions about the integration status of Turkish migrants on the labour market. The basis form national statistics stratified by generation as well as individual samples that are subject to secondary review. By comparing chosen characteristics such as the employment rate, the unemployment status, the sector employment and salary, it will be stressed that the second generation is much better integrated structurally than their parents. However, it should be noted that their integration cannot yet be labelled a success
