European Institute for Migration, Integration and Islam (EIMI)

Who we are

We see our pluralistic society, migrants from all over the world and a multitude of different migrant communities as a huge opportunity.

We seek to:

  • meet, accompany and advise people
  • strengthen relationships and intercultural skills
  • reduce fear of contact and prejudices
  • promote a path from parallel structures to sustainable integration
  • value diversity

We offer

  • Seminars on relevant topics
  • Practice-relevant lectures and advice
  • Networking of processes and projects in the field of migration and integration
  • Research and publications on Islam, migration and integration

Who can take advantage of this offer?

  • Institutions and individuals in the field of church, diaconal work, social work and education
  • Migrants and migrant communities
  • Leaders in politics, economy and society
  • Pastors, church leaders and students of theology
  • all those interested in migration and integration work
