Turkish-German Access to Higher Education: An Historical and Democratic Theory Analysis, 1960-2010
Gonzalez, Roger Geertz
Intercultural Education, v23 n2 p105-117 2012
This article looks at access to higher education in Germany. For a number of reasons, explained in this article, higher education is presently an elite system that privileges ethnic Germans while preventing Turkish-Germans from gaining sufficient access into academe. If Germany is to become a fully functioning multicultural democracy with equal rights for all it will have to revamp its higher education system so that Turkish-Germans can gain better access to such institutions and consequently feel included into the German social and political system.
