Again, these competences are not the reserve of a privileged social elite of immigrant families – these skills are potentially available as generational references, as consequences of the processes of individualization and familiarization with differences and otherness. At the same time, they are also necessary resources that one must have to avoid the risk of marginalization and discrimination.

Special attention was paid to identifications in order to appreciate their constitutive process and the possibility that – although the reifications are constructed on a macro scale – they are structured within local and biographical specificities, thus enabling distinctions, dissent and innovation. Our attention was focused on the capacity to manage the ambivalences of situation and the multiplicity of identifications as a generational skill, certainly more evident among the children of immigrants, and especially among the more educated sectors of these youngsters.
As some scholars have pointed out, living in complex, dynamic and transnational fluxes of information and experiences is predominately a generational experience, deeply rooted in the day-to-day routines of young people (Appadurai 1996; Hannerz 1996). Certainly, the capabilities to deal with and to take advantage of such information and experiences are not equally distributed. More than emphasizing a neutral meeting of cultural differences, it is important to point out the differences and inequalities of economic and technological resources, social capital and relationships, and individual and personal skills.
