Study: Discrimination on the Training Market

A study conducted by the Research Unit of the Expert Council of German Foundations on Integration and Migration (SVR) has proven for the first time that young people with a migrant background are the victims of discrimination in the allocation of training positions. A correspondence test with around 3,600 applications demonstrates that students with a Turkish name are considerably less likely to be invited for an interview when they apply for an apprenticeship compared to students with a German name. In order to prevent discrimination, the SVR Research Unit recommends an anonymous application process and a higher level of cross-cultural training at company level.
