This DPC paper by Bodo Weber critically deals with the policy European States pursued around the 'refugee crisis'. Furthermore, it gives recommendations for political institutions how to deal with the current situation and how to overcome the crisis of the EU.

While the privileged few may cross legitimately by simply presenting their passport, for most, borders present difficult if not insurmountable hurdles. Furthermore there are plenty of other lines of division: social, ethnic, religious and ideological. Any border is a painful memory of the fact that it is not an individual’s choice to define which side he or she is on.

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.
