Migration and Integration: Facts, Findings and Issues in Germany
Knoll, Joachim H.; Hinzen, Heribert
Convergence, v40 n1-2 p41-53 2007
The two words in the title of this article--"migration" and "integration"--are bound closely together. If migration is to achieve some kind of closure, if immigration is to be experienced by the individual as an event that has a conclusion and if the social and legal environment of their new setting is to be accepted, there has to be integration, the willingness to integrate and models of integration. At the same time, we are aware that integration makes demands both of those who migrate and of those who form the majority of society and make integration possible through their willingness to accommodate newcomers. However, it is not a simple task to set out the requirements for integration since there are a number of linguistic, religious and traditional factors that stand in the way of integration and give rise to problems and conflict. Moreover, migration has occurred at various times and for a variety of reasons as a result of historical circumstances. (Contains 13 notes.)
