Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany: Science needs an open-minded atmosphere
The current discussion surrounding immigration and asylum is moving society; it is keeping the media busy and challenging politics. Besides the fact that a demographically ageing society also needs immigration, a particular perspective applies for science, as it is and always has been international. Scientific knowledge does not respect national boundaries. The ideas of people from other cultures, religions and nationalities foster creative work and, in the final consequence, enrich us all.
