“Germany as an Immigration Country: Labor Migration and the Refugee Influx”

Immigration and migration issues are currently at the top of the political agenda as all parties prepare their strategies for the upcoming federal elections in which Chancellor Merkel seeks her fourth term. More narrowly, the consequences of the refugee influx are passionately debated – a topic on which public opinion in Germany is sharply divided. More broadly, Germany aims to establish itself as a modern country of immigration competing for global talent. The presentation will introduce the current situation, give data on immigration in Germany, and identify challenges ahead.
