Value transfer

From July 2016 to February 2017, the Office for Migration and Refugees offered a concept for the transfer of values for refugees. In the communal accommodation units were offered in small groups, accompanied by local social assistance, target group-specific units. With the expertise of cooperation partners from the Stuttgart and Böblingen region, low-threshold training courses were presented and carried out. The topics “Diversity in German Society”, “Woman and Man’s Role Understanding”, “Prevention from Radicalisation” and “Children and Education” were addressed. Now the field of integration has issued a handbook that bundles the methodological content and describes the approaches to action. This should serve as a guide to enable guides to realise a value transfer. The manual includes, among other things, recommendations for action, instructions and methods for securing results.
