The time for thinking about political concepts is now!

The large number of refugees arriving in Germany, especially in 2015, was and remains a challenge for politics and society. However, many developments have taken place, numerous immediate challenges have been met. Therefore, the question of how a long-term and sustainable integration policy might look like is of utmost relevance today. Now is the time for thinking about political concepts that:

  • Enable integration
  • Guarantee a fair participation in society
  • Ensure, that different social groups cannot be pitted against each other.

In its political consultancy work, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung develops integration policy proposals for refugees in Germany and Europe and puts these proposals up for discussion.

Main topics are:

  • Integration into the education system;
  • Questions on access to the job market and necessary qualifications;
  • Distribution of tasks and burdens between federal, state and local authorities;
  • Real opportunities for participation, so that refugees are not degraded to objects;
  • Exchanges on successful integration policy with other states;
  • Local examples of good practice for successful integration.

On this website you can find continuously updated results of our work with links to studies, expert assessments and conference reports.
