The case of Germany
This report intends to investigate the employment and working conditions of migrant workers. The general objective is to compare the employment and working conditions of non-nationals and nationals.
An analysis of the microcensus shows that in 2017, around 2.4 million children and adolescents in Germany lived in non-German-speaking households. This corresponds to 17.7 per cent of all minors (under the age of eighteen) and 47.0 per cent of those with a migration background (defined as having at least one parent not born a German citizen).
In the 25 years between 1994 and 2019, the number of minors in Germany fell by 14.2 percent and in the EU-27 (excluding the United Kingdom) by 15.1 percent. However, the trends were very different.
Although the period of the strongest influx of refugees in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany is five years ago, more asylum seekers have come to Germany in recent years than at the beginning of the 2010s.
