Event Description

All over Europe, the integration of immigrants and members of ethnic minorities is currently being debated with a new urgency. Against the background of urban conflicts and acts of terrorism, previous policies are called into question. But has multiculturalism really failed? And do the new policies of integration address the most urgent problems immigrants and their descendants face?
