Second-generation migrants are worried about possible conflict between law and religion

In Flanders, 9 percent of second-generation citizens from outside the EU believe that the law may be violated in the event of a conflict between law and religion.

It is striking that the group in the second generation is even slightly larger than in the first generation (8.5 percent). The difference is even greater in Brussels. 13.2 percent of the second generation think that the law may be broken in such a case, compared to 7.6 percent of the first generation.

There are also Flemish and Brussels residents of Belgian origin who believe that Belgian law should give way to rules of faith. In Flanders, 1.2 percent of people of Belgian origin are of this opinion, in Brussels even 5.4 percent.
