Signals from the Majortity
Diversity in a liberal society, where members of various minorities can thrive together with members of the majority depends on at least two conditions: A clear signal of welcome from the majority society and the safeguarding of the individual security of migrants. This brief summarizes the findings of the Open Society Foundation-funded research project Signals from the majority and discusses two cases which are characterized by discriminating state behaviour and exclusionist public debates in Germany and charts their impact among immigrant and minority communities. The research is based on 29 qualitative in-depth interviews, transcribed and analysed with qualitative data analysis software.
