How often and in what context do people experience discrimination in Germany? The study, which was published by the German Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency, is based on data from SVR's 2012 Integration Barometer which surveyed the immigrant and native populations about the same issues. The survey focused on experiences of discrimination on both sides and general mistrust. The study shows that immigrants report that they experienced discrimination twice as often as people without a migration background, but also that there are no significant differences between eastern and western Germany.
