Germany

Germany is a nation of immigrants. More than 20 percent of the population have a migration background. Despite a long history of immigration, it took Germany until the beginning of the new millennium to accept this reality. Since then, immigration laws have been liberalized, at least for qualified migrants. Since the extensive refugee immigration in 2015, the topic of asylum is (again) at the center of public attention and has led to opposing attitudes and reactions among the country‘s population.
