Our mosque in the middle of our city

Project Idea

Since the beginning of the labor migration in the 1960s, migrants, especially those with an Islamic cultural background, have started to organize and meet in self-founded associations.

The German host society often perceives this as a closed system to which they themselves have little access. This often leads to a feeling of insecurity and concern, of sometimes to a parallel coexistence. This current state prevents people’s potential from being optimally used for social needs.


Project structure


The project was evaluated, and the results were published in the form of a manual, which was also made available to other municipalities so that they can promote networking independently.
