ABSTRACT
In this roundtable discussion, we want to start from the notion of arrival cities / neighborhoods and discuss what facilitates or inhibits the incorporation of refugees. Large cities with a long history of immigration and the corresponding infrastructure are often seen as places where the incorporation of newcomers can occur without much conflict, in contrast to, for example, more rural areas with little experience of immigration. Based on the example of Berlin, we want to discuss the experience of refugee incorporation and thereby analyze the factors that make up an 'arrival city' (or neighborhood). Concurrently, we also look at the factors that inhibit the smooth incorporation of newcomers. We thereby want to discuss a variety of actors, including among others the city administration, civil society, and migrant organizations.
