Immigration and the Nation-State

Analysis of German immigration policy shows the limits to which immigrants can be assimilated without granting them citizenship. Non‐citizen status becomes especially problematic for second‐ and third‐generation immigrants. This chapter examines the problems of integrating Turkish guest workers, whose situation and status is becoming increasingly relevant as European integration proceeds. The widely held assumption, that Islamization was mostly a phenomenon limited to the first‐generation immigrants, has proved to be mistaken, and the outcome of a clear trend towards nationalist and religious retrenchment among the third‐generation immigrants remains worryingly problematic.

Keywords:   Germany, guest workers, immigration, Islamization
