Many millions of people from differing parts of the world have migrated to
the Federal Republic of Germany (and its immediate predecessors, the
western zones of occupation) since the end of the Second World War. This
study aims to investigate the population’s changing views on immigrants
and on issues related to immigration between 1945 and 2006. As people from
many different ethnic and cultural backgrounds migrated to the country in
the period under consideration, the population’s views on immigration and
on differing immigrant groupings provide in addition tantalising insights
into changing perceptions of German identity.
