Germany has grown into a multicultural society. Some of its immigrants have meanwhile acquired German citizenship. Immigration, both economically and politically driven, will continue over the next years and decades. But current public discussion preferably zooms in on xenophobia and integration deficits, as well as problems and conflicts between youths coming from different cultural backgrounds. "Has multi-culti failed?" is the question dominating current discussion, whereas hardly anybody is interested in whether there are harmonious and smooth intercultural relations between youths.
The DJI interviewed apprentices (known as "Azubis" in Germany) with and without a migratory background about their experience: how do they deal with each other in a company setting? Do cultural roots (still) play a role? In four major industrial companies in northern, western and southern Germany, 886 female and male Azubis were asked in the summer of 2004 to submit written replies on how they got along with each other in their day-to-day training environment. In addition personal interviews were carried out with 47 Azubis.
