Islam, Migrants and Multiculturalism: A Glance at Germany, Korea and Beyond

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jun 21, 2018 | Middle East Institute, Julius Rogenhofer and Hacer Gonul

As Germany struggles to define its relationship with its new population of Muslim migrants, a comprehensive endorsement of multiculturalism is not a foregone conclusion. Germany exemplifies trends that signal a retreat from multiculturalism and pluralism, not only in Europe but around the world. In their article for the Middle East Institute, Julius Rogenhofer and Hacer Gonul suggest that the Islam debate signals a profound struggle over what it means to be German, and whether Germany has succeeded in overcoming its historical, ethnic conception of citizenship. German discussions around Islam and multiculturalism mark a new global trend of skepticism towards cultural pluralism in nation states.
