Migration Matters

How Diverse Is Germany (and How Is This Diversity Perceived)?

Just how diverse is Germany really? And what does the country make of its diversity? We took this question to Prof. Dr. Naika Foroutan, one of Germany’s most prominent researchers on integration who specializes in countries of immigration, their shifting identities, and their prevalent attitudes towards minorities.

Look out for….

  • How do we talk about people who come from other countries but live in our country, and does the way we talk about them change  if and when they become citizens?
  • Definitions in Germany and Canada
  • Paths to citizenship
  • Differences from country to country
  • What does “We” mean?
