Integration 2020: We wish to shape Germany’s immigration society and drive integration forward
Germany is a society of immigration. We already live in a society which is becoming increasingly pluralized. To ensure that this society continues to thrive in the future, it is crucial that advantage be taken of the potential offered by everyone living in Germany. Everyone in Germany should have the same opportunity to take part in central areas of society’s life. A key prerequisite for this is successful education. We are committed to eliminating the inequalities which exist between people of migrant and German origin in terms of school and university qualifications.
Our goal is to reduce by 2025 the inequality in Germany in terms of school and university qualifications – based on the 2005 level – by 70 percent for people of migrant origin and aged 15-30.
As an interim target, we are working to reduce by 2015 the discrepancies in school and university qualifications – based on the 2005 level – by 30 percent for people of migrant origin and aged 15-30.
