Pakistanis in Netherlands - their identity and expectations
After our last talk on the subject of "Pakistan, in Search of Identity", we received several requests for a follow up meeting and a more in-depth discussion with regard to the Identity issues of Pakistanis living in the Netherlands. Responding to the feedback, OPP constructed a panel of a range of persons representing different generations with different backgrounds – those who migrated for different reasons to the Netherlands and also those who were born here. During the discussion, we heard about their motivations, experiences, their dreams and fears, what inspired them, the ways they dealt with cultural and social differences, key obstacles in achieving their goals etc. The discussion revolved around the current context and what it means for the youth with Pakistani origin.
