The present interdisciplinary work deals with migration and integration, while a special emphasis is put on young immigrant school dropouts. Philosophically speaking, the work is based upon the thoughts of J. Carens (1996) who suggests that sensitive issues like migration and integration are best dealed with by combining the idealistic approach (concerned with the ought), and the realistic approach (concerned with the is), so as not to neglect neither the citizen?s nor the immigrant?s needs. Further important philosophical issues are the question of diversity, and its limits and A. Margalit?s approach, in which he propagates a ?decent? society, in which institutions are called upon not to humiliate people. Chapter 2 is concerned with socio-political issues, among others immigration policy, forms and dimensions of integration, the role of the nation state as well as the right and duties. In chapter 3, migration is dealed with on a more personal level. Among others, the consequences of migration upon the individual?s personality, the role of social affiliation and the interplay between adolescence and migration are looked upon. Furthermore, a subchapter deals with the religion of Islam, which many immigrants adhere to. Chapter 4 again returns to philosophy, or, more precisely, to intercultural philosophy which deals with ethical questions such as the effects of globalization upon different countries and communities, the question of intercultural empathy and the capacity to see things from the perspective of others. Chapter 5 is divided into two parts, the first of which focuses on three topics which seem to be especially relevant for modern (immigrant) societies: education, work, and the question of ethnic colonies and their implications for integration. A major point in this chapter are the disadvantages from which immigrants suffer as far as education, housing, and work are concerned, and the measures which can be taken to ameliorate their situation.
