Cohesion in Diversity in Germany
Germany is a diverse country, a fact that offers opportunities for future development in a globalized world, but also poses challenges for the social coexistence of people. In recent years, the question of how much diversity Germany can bear has been the subject of heated debate. The primary goal of the “Cohesion in Diversity: The Diversity Barometer of the Robert Bosch Stiftung” project is to put the debate soundly on objective grounds by making fact-based contributions.
The Diversity Barometer is a representative survey that provides data on interviewees' attitudes to different dimensions of diversity, such as age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, religion, and low socio-economic standing. The study was conducted for the first time in 2018. 3,025 German residents aged 16 and older were interviewed by telephone about their opinions and attitudes toward various social groups. The Jacobs University Bremen provided scientific support to the project.
