Yilmaz (HEROES)

Migration Matters

If Integration Isn’t the Answer, Then What Is?

Yilmaz from HEROES talks about why they specifically don’t describe themselves as an integration initiative that works with Muslim youth, and how his particular background has shaped his work and vision for social cohesion.

If Integration Isn't the Answer, Then What Is?

  • Different idea of a “man”
  • Heroes are men integrating values of equality into their lives
  • Not an integration project
  • Work with “Patriarchal Structures” to be found everywhere
  • Integration as a one-sided term
  • Progression in various cultures
  • Integration as force
  • Following or breaking laws
