A German migration expert claims that not lower than 35 p.c of the German inhabitants might have worldwide backgrounds by the yr 2040, rising to as quite a bit as 70 p.c in predominant cities.
The head of migrant evaluation on the Federal Institute for Employment Research (IAB), Herbert Brücker, speaking to the German newspaper Die Welt acknowledged: “Currently, about a quarter of the people in Germany have a migrant background. In 20 years, it will be at least 35 percent, but could also be more than 40 percent.”
Brücker expects that the share will in all chance be quite a bit larger in German cities, saying in suggestions reported by DW: “What we see in the big cities today will be normal for the country as a whole in the future.”
“In a city like Frankfurt, we’ll have between 65 percent to 70 percent,” he added.
In 2017, Frankfurt grew to change into the first German metropolis to have a greater share of people with a migration background than native Germans.
