About the project

Scientific evaluation of the project “JUGENDSTIL* — Teilhabe und Mitgestaltung junger Migrant:innen in Ostdeutschland“  

The project “JUGENDSTIL*” of the foun­da­tion “Bürg­er für Bürg­er” (Cit­i­zens for Cit­i­zens) aims to make young peo­ple with an inter­na­tion­al his­to­ry in East Ger­many more vis­i­ble as active shapers of soci­ety, to make their voic­es heard more and to open up effec­tive oppor­tu­ni­ties for them to par­tic­i­pate. Specif­i­cal­ly, the project tar­gets peo­ple between the ages of 14 and 27 with an inter­na­tion­al his­to­ry (own or fam­i­ly his­to­ry of migra­tion or flight or self-des­ig­na­tion as BIPoC, Black Ger­man, Sin­tizze and Rom­n­ja, Jew­ish, Mus­lim) who live in east­ern Ger­many. The project aims to encour­age the young peo­ple in their com­mit­ment through (finan­cial) sup­port, to stand up for their inter­ests and con­cerns and thus to allow a liv­ing democ­ra­cy to emerge. JUGENDSTIL* sees itself as an impulse giv­er and expe­di­tion com­pan­ion on the way of those who con­tribute to an open and diverse soci­ety. In addi­tion, the JUGENDSTIL* com­mu­ni­ty facil­i­tates an exchange of expe­ri­ences with oth­er young activists and offers the oppor­tu­ni­ty to find fel­low cam­paign­ers for one’s own ideas. Over the course of the project so far, a strong net­work for young inter­na­tion­al engage­ment in east­ern Ger­many has already emerged.

d|part führt eine wis­senschaftliche Eval­u­a­tion des Pro­jek­ts durch, deren Ziel darin beste­ht, inner­halb der sich her­aus­ge­bilde­ten Struk­turen und Akteur:innen Erken­nt­nisse über die Vorstel­lun­gen und Erwartung­shal­tun­gen für eine gemein­same Inter­essensvertre­tung der post­mi­grantis­chen ost­deutschen Ini­tia­tiv­en her­auszuar­beit­en. Des Weit­eren sollen beste­hende (struk­turelle) Hür­den in der gesellschaftlichen Teil­habe der Engagierten sowie in Förderin­stru­menten erfasst sowie gemein­sam Gestal­tungs- und Lösungsvorschläge dazu her­aus­gear­beit­et wer­den, um post­mi­grantis­chen ost­deutschen Stim­men mehr Gehör zu ver­schaf­fen und eine gle­ich­berechtigte poli­tis­che Beteili­gung für alle zu fördern.

d|part con­ducts a sci­en­tif­ic eval­u­a­tion of the project. The aim is to gain insights into the ideas and expec­ta­tions of post-migrant East Ger­man ini­tia­tives with­in the struc­tures and actors that have emerged. Fur­ther­more, exist­ing (struc­tur­al) obsta­cles in the social par­tic­i­pa­tion of the com­mit­ted as well as in fund­ing instru­ments are to be record­ed and pro­pos­als for solu­tions are to be worked out togeth­er in order to make post-migrant East Ger­man voic­es heard more and to pro­mote equal polit­i­cal par­tic­i­pa­tion for all.
