The new Shell study says young Germans are more willing to accept refugees and migrants into society than was the case a decade ago. That's good news, because young people play a key role in helping refugees adjust to life in Germany.
Almost one-third of all refugees in Germany are women. However, they receive little attention in the debate on integration, which makes settling into the country all the more difficult.
Co-leader of the anti-immigration AfD Alice Weidel paid an asylum-seeker under the table, the German newspaper Die Zeit claimed. It's been a difficult week for Weidel, who was viewed as her party’s liberal face.
"What’s the Turk doing up there?," a caller to the Green party complained when he saw Cem Özdemir in the Bundestag in 1994. Today 37 MPs and one in ten voters have a migrant background. Could they swing the election?
Support for the anti-immigration AfD has been eroding, but not in eastern Germany. The right-wing populists remain a force in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, which has fewer refugees than any other state. How can that be?
