Abstract:This thesis addresses the topic of refugees in Germany and their challenge to get integrated into the German labor market. More specifically, the research question to answer is: ‘Can the integration programs, initiated by several German companies in the initiative called ‘Wir zusammen’, be successful in order to integrate refugees into the labor market? - An analysis applied to three labor market integration programs’. This exploratory research establishes an overview on the integration programs that are provided by a selected number of German companies in the initiative ‘Wir zusammen’ in 2016. With the help of the so called ‘Patenschaftsversprechen’ i.e. ‘sponsorship promises’ that have been made by the three companies in the initiatives and interviews hold with one contact person of each company, these three case studies assess the success of the programs. The analysis of this thesis comes to the conclusion that the ideas presented in the programs are a good start to address the issue of refugee labor market integration, especially if they include practical as well as language training.
