Detailed qualitative interviews with a sample of around one hundred children of immigrants who took part as respondents in the Longitudinal Study of the Second Generation (ILSEG) in Spain are the source of this chapter. The research design for the full study is described in chapter 4. For this chapter, we selected twelve stories of young people of different nationalities, genders, and places of birth now residing in metropolitan Madrid and Barcelona. The varieties of their experiences at school and at home and of their plans for the future are emblematic of those found among members of this emerging population in Spain. These vignettes, drawn from real-life experiences, serve to introduce the study and provide an interpretive framework to better understand the wealth of survey results presented in the following chapters.
