Germany's Transformation to a Modern Immigration Country.

Annual Report 2014 with Integration Barometer.

April 2014

The 2014 Annual Report looks at Germany’s transformation to a modern immigration country over the last five years and identifies a considerable need for action that still exists in some areas. While the results of the overall assessment of integration policy are mixed, and a lot still needs to be done to create equal opportunities for participation, the legal avenues for the immigration of highly skilled workers have been liberalised to a great extent. However, an overall migration policy strategy is still lacking. The Expert Council offers a number of recommendations for action to further develop Germany’s integration and migration policies.
