Abstract [en]

This paper explores the employment implications for second and middle generation immigrants in Sweden of identification to the ethnic group and to the majority culture, so-called acculturation identity. Results indicate no significant differences in employment probabilities between those that identify only with majority (assimilated) and those that identify with both the majority culture and the ethnic group (integrated). What appears to matter for employment outcomes is an attachment to the majority culture while a strong attachment to the ethnic group is not per se detrimental for employment outcomes.
