Since less displaced people are arriving to Germany than in 2015 and 2016, the focus of the issues has shifted from housing and emergency care to social and cultural integration as well as access to education and the labour market. At the same time, the claims for deportation and secure borders in Europe have increased throughout the continent. We have implemented the updated game on the 15th of September on the last day of a workshop on pluralistic societies organized for IPS scholarship holders from Arabic states. 24 young people have discussed, negotiated and compromised on ideas how to take on the challenges and use the chances that migration has led to.
The workshop was organized for young people from different Arabic states that are currently holding a scholarship for interning in the German Bundestag.
The three-day workshop had the purpose to get the group acquainted with the way the german society is diverse and how it manifests in Berlin. The goal of the simulation game was to encourage interaction and reflection about this complex topic.
