Over eight months, the Mercator Forum Migration and Democracy (MIDEM) conducts a study on the significance and role of migration and integration in the curricula. The study was assigned by the Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Minister of State Annette Widmann-Mauz. The study will analyze the curricula for grades 7 to 10 in the German federal states Bavaria, Berlin, Brandenburg, North Rhine-Westphalia and Saxony. It includes interviews both with teachers and staff in the ministries of education and with experts from teacher training. In addition to the research findings, the study on migration and integration is also intended to provide recommendations for action on the redesign or reorganisation of curricula.
