Abstract

Today, around 2.8 million people of Turkish origin live in Germany, which began recruitment in 1961 and ended in 1973. In this more than 60-year migration process, at least three generations of German-Turks chose this country as their living space and became permanent. Despite the long period of time, the Turkish minority in Germany is exposed to different forms and degrees of exclusion, racist attacks are considered to be commonplace. Our aim is to correlate and interpret the discrimination statistics of three generations that developed during the migration process with the components of that generation. In the study with a quantitative research design, data from 316 people living in Germany were collected using questionnaires and an attempt was made to understand the connection between generational experiences and experiences of discrimination. The result of the research showed that the three generations, which grew up in different social, cultural, economic and educational realities, had different experiences of discrimination. It turned out that the generations that take an integrated position in the German nation-state structure through the production of bicultural identities are more likely to be discriminate.
