"Recent literature has emphasised the importance of family involvement within immigrant families in determining their children’s educational pathways. On the one hand, the focus on family involvement and the transmission of familial resources becomes more important when disentangling ethnic educational inequalities for second-generation youth. On the other hand, particular practices of family involvement seem to counterbalance disadvantaged origins and become the driving force for educational success. However, few, if any, studies systematically explore the importance of family involvement for educational success by children of immigrants from an international comparative perspective." This special issue aims at filling this gap. Content: Family involvement and educational success of the children of immigrants in Europe. Comparative perspectives / Parental involvement and educational success in Kosovar families in Switzerland / Passing the torch to a new generation: Educational support types and the second generation in the Netherlands / The educational supports of parents and siblings in immigrant families / Behind the scenes: family involvement and educational achievements of second-generation Turks in Austria, France and Sweden / “Is it Merit or Cultural Capital?” The role of parents during early tracking in Amsterdam and Strasbourg among descendants of immigrants from Turkey.
