Immigration and Integration Policies and Practices in Germany

(p.63) 5 Germany
Immigration Worldwide

Andrea Schmelz

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an overview on both immigration to Germany and the immigrant population currently living in the country. Also, it sheds light on political shifts in integration policy in Germany, made possible after 1998 by the governing coalition between the Social Democrats (SPD) and the Green Party (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen). Education and segregation, central areas of conflict in the debate on integration, along with the current state of integration in Germany are examined in order to shed light on the nation's continuing problem with “ethnic discrimination.”

Keywords:   diversity, integration policy, labor, parallel society
