Migration and Integration in Germany: The First Two Decades of the Twenty-First Century
Issue Brief 60
Few issues in recent years have dominated public and political discourse inside and outside of Germany as migration and integration. The movement of millions of people into the country have elicited some very different reactions from segments of the German population. This Issue Brief gives a short overview of some major aspects of the German migration and integration experience since the beginning of the new century. It uses a systematic historical approach to focus on four key themes and issues:
- Integration and integration policies,
- The refugee crisis, and
- National identity challenges.
