Factsheet: There’s more to life than work

Multifaceted design of local integration of EU migrants

In the past few years, migration from other Member States of the European Union (EU) has accounted for the largest portion by far of the overall immigration into Germany. At the same time, however, the highly heterogeneous group of EU migrants receives little attention in the context of local integration work when compared to other groups. The lack of integration offers, in fact, poses an obstacle in the desire of those persons wishing to stay in the country. However, rural regions in particular stand to greatly benefit from long-term intra-EU mobility as it has the potential to counteract the increasing shortage of skilled workers, demographic change and the population drain of predominantly younger persons, who are moving to other, mostly urban, areas. This document is the factsheet on the expert brief "There's more to life than work - Multifaceted design of local integration of EU migrants".
