Muslims in Germany: Media Portrayal and Everyday Experiences (October 2012 – March 2013)

Although the second generation of Muslim migrants born in Germany is much better integrated than the first generation, the political and media debates are increasingly confined to the ‘failed integration of Muslims’.

Based on an in-depth analysis of SVR’s 2012 Integration Barometer this project sought to assess people’s opinion of how Muslims are portrayed in the German media. Germany’s migrant and native population agree that the media image of Muslims in Germany is too negative. The SVR Research Unit recommends increasing the number of articles about Muslims in their regular day-to-day lives outside of the problem contexts.

The project was funded by the Stiftung Mercator. The final results were published in March 2013.
