Germany is an immigrant society with open borders within the EU and transnational migratory flows beyond Europe. People come and go, the population is plural, multi-religious, and multi-ethnic. However, the approaches of integration and migration policies often stem from an outdated paradigm: a homogeneous host society into which immigrants must be integrated.
At the first joint meeting of the Jewish Museum Berlin Academy and the Migration Council, science meets politics – migration researchers discuss with policy makers after the election how new approaches to migration and integration policy in Germany could look.
The panel discussion is part of the symposium "Migration and Integration Politics Today."
A cooperation with the Migration Council.
