21st Annual Conference of the German-Hungarian Forum and the 1st Conference of the Young German-Hungarian Forum, 14. / 15. October 2011

The 21st Annual Conference of the German-Hungarian Forum took place on the 14th and 15th October 2011 at the Repre­sen­tation of the Magyar Telekom in Budapest. The Institut für Europäische Politik (IEP) organized the conference in cooper­ation with the German-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DUIHK). The theme of the forum centered on “Aspects of social integration of minorities in Hungary and Germany: possi­bil­ities, limits and European framework”. The Hungarian Foreign Minister Dr. János Martonyi and the German Minister of State Dr. Werner Hoyer opened the conference with over 250 partic­i­pants attending from economic, political and civil society sectors. For the first time a Young German-Hungarian Forum also took place simul­ta­ne­ously, with themes dedicated to young profes­sionals and academics.

The social integration and the integration of immigrants in Germany and Hungary as well as the integration of Roma in Europe were delib­erated upon in panel discus­sions and working groups. The Young German-Hungarian Forum focused on identities and identity politics in the Danube region.
