On Migration


Wolfgang Bauer

Across the Sea

There is a humanitarian catastrophe happening in front of our eyes: The Syrian civil war continues to claim hundreds of lives. Millions of Syrians are fleeing, some of them risk the transit from Egypt to Europe by boat. Each year, hundreds of people die during this endeavour, making the Mediterranean the most dangerous sea boarder in the world.

Andreas Cassee

Global Mobility

Everyone should be able to decide freely on which country they would like to live in; restrictions on immigration are acceptable only in exceptional cases. This is the argument that philosopher Andreas Cassee makes in this lucid book. He presents a sound overview of the discussion on the ethics of migration over the last 30 years and at the same time, he defends a position that focuses on the individual’s right to autonomously choose their place of residence. A work that is as topical as it is important.

Human Rights, Democracy and Peace

While human rights are often regarded as the single basis of legitimacy for military interventions or global forms of organization in the current debate, in her new book, Ingeborg Maus puts forward the programmatic thesis that human rights can only be realised in combination with democracy and peace.

Germany for a Season

Only one »foreigner« per team: in 1977 that’s the limit in the Federal Basketball League. The foreigner in Göttingen is named Wilbert Olinde and has just arrived from Los Angeles. The Germans are surprised by him, and he in turn is surprised by the Germans. He only intends to stay for a year. But then things turn out quite differently indeed.

Whether treated as a theoretical concept or a polemic phrase, the term »multiculturalism« has determined the debate on the immigration society for a long time. A society that was imagined to play out like a big neighbourhood party with frankfurters, falafel and cevapcici – as a noncommittally tolerant co-existence.

Philipp Ther

The Outsider

Flight and integration are extremely important themes at present. They are a major reason for the rise of right-wing populist parties and are threatening to divide the EU. However, a glimpse into the depths of history puts 2015’s »refugee crisis« into perspective. Since the expulsion of Jews from the Iberian Peninsula in 1492, Europe has constantly been a continent of refugees.

Manual for the Clash of Cultures

In the mid 1990s when Samuel Huntington presented his theory on the clash of cultures, he was met by widespread repudiation. Meanwhile, the conflict with Islam has estab-lished itself in the media as an ongoing issue and one cannot but speak of a real clash of cultures.
