Society and integration

Societies are in a constant process of change. In the coming years and decades, German society will change as well, also as a result of immigration and demographic change. But globalization and the spread of digital technology have an impact on our society as well. Government, civil society and each individual are called on to help shape this process of change and guarantee that all segments of society can live together in harmony. In doing so, we must preserve our open and pluralist society and protect the recognition of our free and democratic basic order as the legal framework for living together. The Federal Ministry of the Interior addresses in a variety of ways the task of strengthening social cohesion and the integration of new arrivals.
