For several years now, Germany has boasted a positive integration record. In the self-conception of German society, however, this has yet to be acknowledged. Instead, the fear of losing one's own cultural values and ways of life continues to dictate the public debate. As part of what is called "poverty immigration", the recent influx of irregular migrants and citizens of South-East Europe seems to be promoting such fears. The articles in this volume - all of which derive from lectures and discussions that were held on the occasion of the 19th and 20th Migration Forum of the non-profit foundation "Otto Benecke Stiftung e.V." - expose the problem areas and illustrate ways and strategies through which participation can lead to togetherness.
