Berlin has a long history of immigration and integration. In recent years in particular, the city has seen a significant increase in population, which is characterised by various forms of migration. Immigrants include highly qualified people and students from abroad, but also people who have had to leave their country of origin due to war and persecution. In the face of continuing immigration, Berlin is confronted with challenges in numerous fields of action, such as bureaucracy, education and labour. How can immigration and successful integration into the growing city be organised?
We transcribe and evaluate our trial dialogues
Our second Trialogue® "Immigration to Berlin: Opportunities and challenges for the growing city" as part of the project New Urban Agenda Berlin addressed the question of how to deal with current population trends in a sustainable and urban-friendly way. 80 participants from academia, politics and administration, business and organised civil society discussed pressing challenges and options for action on 4 October 2018.
