Video: Volker Heins on the future of Germany as a pluralistic society

The future of German society is culturally diverse. In this video, Professor Volker Heins from the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities in Essen (KWI) explains which tasks our society faces in the future and which factors will be important for living together in cultural diversity.

What are the factors contributing to success in living diversity? What challenges does diversity pose for society, and how can we meet these challenges?

Our Living Diversity - Shaping Society project takes a close look at the reality of diversity in today's German society and asks how we can develop effective approaches to living together in cultural diversity that target social inclusion and allow everyone the opportunity to participate in all aspects of society.

The interview with Volker Heins was held during our expert workshop in Berlin in preparation for the launch of the Reinhard Mohn Prize 2018 research. Videos of further interviews with experts will be posted here soon.
