This is an outstanding, must-read article by Juan Moreno, published in Spiegel Online.
For me, this article illustrates why liberal Spiegel is one of the world’s top newspapers and should be seen as a gold-standard for newspapers around the world. By comparison, media in the UK is too strong on political bias and less robust in the quality of reporting – this has been a deteriorating trend.
The author shares his own experience, plus those of his immigrant parents, and interviews with two of Germany’s top experts on immigration. The article is balanced, reflective, citing both objective data like statistics and recounting subjective case studies. The conclusion is up to each individual reader.
Apart from reflections on Germany, the material is this article is transferable to other countries. This leads to an open question:
Are refugees really more welcome in Germany than say the UK, France, Spain, Italy or Hungary?
