The main aim of this paper is to outline some specific phenomena in the problematic of immigrants and descendants of immigrants of Yugoslavian origin in Denmark. Due to its marginal importance on both sides (Denmark as well as the former Yugoslavian countries) the topic has been neglected academically. The focus of this paper is mostly concentrated on the question of belonging and identity of younger generations. Therefore, it contains a summary of the historical, cultural and social background experienced by migrants in their communities. It will also contextualize the main characteristics of specific aspects of everyday life in detail. Further, topics regarding identity with its various aspects will be discussed. A crucial part is based on the field research itself. The opinions of interviewed migrants open up a discussion about current topics and show unexpected results. The stress is put on an overview of the relations between the majority Danish society and the young migrants. Danish society possesses certain cultural codes, which can be very difficult to recognize and internalize for foreign individuals.
