"Immigration and integrating urban society - What happens after primary accommodation?"
March, 17 th 2016 - Kronprinzenpalais Berlin
The current wave of immigration is a huge challenge for German cities, but in many places it also shows which force the urban community can unfold for a welcoming culture. Until now, the handling of primary accommodation for refugees and asylum seekers is in the center of attention. But politics and administration already have to deal with the long-term issues of permanent living and the integration of people with a residence permit in the cities and communities.
With the conference on "Immigration and integrating urban society - What happens after accommodation?" the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety wants to provide a platform for the short-term discussion of issues of integration as a future task of integrated urban development policy and innovative housing creation and to further enable the exchange between communities, countries and federal policies, the local associations and renowned experts. The conference takes place on March 17th, 2016 at Kronprinzenpalais in Berlin.
