Taberlingen in the news - Workshop for IPS Fellows

In reaction to the current events and developments in Europe, we have updated our Simulation Game Taberlingen, that deals with the question of migration, integration and exclusion on a local level in Germany.

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.
