Migration

For us there is no contradiction between ethnic and cultural diversity within our society and a commitment towards the basic values and rules of democracy; together the two constitute the foundation of our multicultural republic, and this is a key element of the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s mission statement that guides our domestic and international programmes in political education as well as our corporate culture. Key issues are equal opportunities and the possibility for everyone in society to participate in politics, the economy, and regarding social questions. The degree to which this will be achieved is critical for Germany’s sustainability.

Our Migration - Integration - Diversity website offers a wealth of background stories, reports, and dossiers, as well as information about our events and projects on major questions related to a multicultural society.
