Transatlantic Discourse on Integration 2: Immigrant Integration and Education.

The Role of State and Civil Society in Germany and the U.S.

This publication presents the results of the workshop "Integration and Education of Migrants: The Role of State and Civil Society" which was held in Nürnberg on July 11-12, 2005. The workshop was jointly organized with the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.

After the so called Pisa shock in Germany civil society and public authorities increasingly are aware that something has to be done to improve the situation. The articles assembled in this volume in a way do mirror this increasing public awareness and, at the same time, describe some of the measures that are already being practiced.

The first part of the book is on concrete measures to support integration of migrants and their children through education and information. Since the structure of the efms - GMF seminar series "Transatlantic Discourse on Integration" is internationally comparative, an attempt has been made to bring international experiences into the discussion.

The second part of the book has a more general character and discusses basic question of migration - integration policies both in the US and Germany and presents the main tasks of the reorganized Federal Office for Migration and Refugees in Nuremberg which hosted the seminar.
