Integration, Migration, TransnationalizationΒΆ

Migration and forced migration are changing German society. The SOEP offers diverse migration samples and numerous specific migration questions that allow researchers to study migration-related questions in detail. The modules on integration, migration, and transnationalization provide data on migration histories, discrimination, inter-ethnic contact, education, cultural integration, transnational relations, identification with Germany, and the intention to stay in Germany.
