Integration Policy at a Regional Level in Germany

Integration Policy at a Regional Level in Germany

Since 2007 there has been a comprehensive battery of measures at the federal level aimed at integrating immigrants and their descendants: the "National Integration Plan". Since just under one fifth of the foreign population in Germany lives in one of the country´s six biggest cities, and since there is tremendous leeway at city level in terms of implementing the regulations contained in the National Integration Plan, the present policy brief examines and describes the various concepts and measures for integrating foreign citizens in Germany´s six biggest cities: Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart.
