Second generation foreigners well integrated

Second generation foreigners in Switzerland have better chances of finding a job than do their counterparts in other European countries.

A report issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) on Thursday, which considered the integration of so-called "secondos" in 16 countries, described Switzerland as an "exception" among European states.

The study says that whatever the level of education, there is very little difference in the employment quota between secondos and Swiss.

This finding comes despite the fact that Pisa studies, which look at education levels in different European countries, have found that, in Switzerland as elsewhere, the children of migrants do worse at school than their Swiss counterparts. and agencies
