Integration in the federal system: the federal government, Laender and the role of the municipalities.

Annual Report 2012 with Integration Barometer.

May 2012

The Annual Report examines how effective cooperation between the federal, state and municipal levels is on issues related to integration policy. The Expert Council analyses where the federal, state and local level work well together and how they hinder one another in drafting and implementing integration policy. Urgently needed are improved coordination, cooperation and networking, elimination of the ban on joint funding of education by the federal government and Laender governments and a better alignment of integration policy responsibilities at the federal level.
