Transatlantic Discourse on Integration: "Integration of Migrants and Local Housing Policies in Germany and the U.S.", Juli 14, 2006

Since 2003, the european forum for migration studies (efms) has been organizing the workshop series "Transatlantic Discourse on Integration" which is supported by the German Marshall Fund of the United States. In the course of this series, the efms hosted the seminar "Integration of Migrants and Local Housing Policies in Germany and the U.S." on July 14th, 2006 in Berlin-Schwanenwerder.

The workshop brought together manager and architects of integrative housing projects, representatives of the government as of nongovernmental organizations, municipal commissioner for integration and academics. These experts from Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States discussed about the integration of migrants in the field of housing: To which extent does segregation inhibit or foster the integration of migrants? How are the urban living conditions of migrants? How can disadvantaged neighbourhoods be improved? What are the roles of municipal administrations, public housing enterprises or migrant organizations? The international comparison and the transatlantic transferability of solutions are matter of particular interest.
