Migration and Integration in Germany: The First Two Decades of the Twenty-First Century
Migration and integration have become dominant political topics in the United States and Germany. The German experience in 2015-2016 is often cited in the U.S. discourse on migration, but there has been little public examination of the progress and challenges since then.
In a new Issue Brief for AICGS, Prof. Dr. Friedrich Heckmann gives a short overview of some major aspects of the German migration and integration experience since the beginning of the new century. He focuses on four key themes and issues:
- Integration and integration policies,
- The refugee crisis, and
- National identity challenges.
