There are more and more adults of Moroccan and Turkish descent whose ‘roots and routes’ lie both in the Netherlands and in the country of their (grand) parents. The question of ‘home’ may be even more complex and urgent for this group than for earlier generations. This study explores the life stories of a number of these men and women. It does so using ‘Dialogical Self Theory’: talking about their lives and homes, individuals speak from several different positions and produce stories that are ‘multivoiced’. Through detailed analysis of such narratives, this thesis provides rich insights into their identities. Focusing on stories about ‘home’, it deals with social relationships and being oneself, countries and houses, discrimination, family and Islam, and how all of this features in highly personal narratives that bring together one’s past, present and future. This study challenges the one-dimensional image presented of Moroccan/Turkish/Muslim Dutch in public debates, and shows the harmful impact this image can have on individuals.
