Baden-Württemberg, always mentioned as structurally conservative is now become the model federal state. Four months ago it turned politically green, BÜNDNIS 90/Die Grünen and SPD are government now. Several politicians have migrational background and it’s the first federal state launching a ministry for integration. A big thanks concerning first steps to a more open society goes also to the minister of integration, Bilkay Öney, SPD.

Bilkay Öney’s recent calls:
– no „Einbürgerungstest“ anymore
– double citizenship at least for those born in Germany
Both are important for a successful integration as well. Accepting and respecting the country of origin of immigrants (in whichever generation)* motivates them more to also be respectful with their country of living.
