HOW THE GERMAN EDUCATION SYSTEM MIGHT BETTER SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE OF MIGRANT ORIGIN

Pınar Burcu Güner

Abstract


This paper extensively identifies gaps in the structures and systems in education and welfare frames and discourses which put people of Turkish origin at a disadvantage or as unequally treated compared to other sub-groups in Germany. This paper addresses a deepening analysis of the lack of necessary structures and systems. It considers discourses of inclusion that impede fundamental rights of these young people to make them full citizens of Germany and so empower them to full use of their agency. German politicians and society heavily discuss “integrating” Turkish youth to “German society” without discussing what are the available structures, systems and opportunities and what kinds of limitations and burdens these youth have that limit the extent to which they can be part of German society.
