The Evaluation of the System of Financing the Integration Courses in Germany
Languages of publication
Persons intending to live in Germany should have a certain knowledge of the German language and about the country in general. Foreigners may acquire the necessary skills and knowledge by participating in integration courses. They are financed by the state as well as by the immigrants themselves. The aim of the article is to evaluate the system of financing such courses that was adopted in Germany. As part of the justification for selecting this particular topic it is worth mentioning that there are no analyses on this subject available in the source literature. Furthermore, also the geopolitical situation in the world and the influx of refugees in Europe (including Germany) that results from it serve to prove just how current and important with regard to cost economics the issue of financing immigrant integration actually is. The analysis has been carried out on the basis of German legal acts and the financial data obtained from the Federal Statistical Office and the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. The article covers the period 2017-2018 and is based on the method of document analysis. (original abstract)
