Cultural migration: Networks of Iranian Organizations in the Netherlands
van den Bos, Matthijs
While distrust and divisiveness amongst Iranians in different diaspora environments have been commonly acknowledged, there are additional indications suggesting that Dutch-Iranian organizations are relatively scarce. In this article, we compare the organizational networks of Dutch-Iranians to those of Turks and Moroccans in the Netherlands. The results show that organization density is lower and fragmentation higher for Dutch-Iranians. We explain this by Iranian forms of organization, which have been transplanted to and interact with the diaspora. However, Dutch-Iranians are also exceptionally well integrated in the Dutch society. This puts the relationship between integration and ethnic organization into question.
