About the institute

Welcome to the website of the Berlin Institute for Integration and Migration Research (BIM) at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

The BIM develops basic scientific principles and empirical data aimed at providing a factual basis for debate on integration issues in Europe, and investigates how integration and migration processes in Germany and Europe have taken place so far and will develop in the future. The BIM is designed for cooperative research and aims at building a broad base for establishing integration and migration research in Berlin. Through its research, the BIM transfers information and findings into the worlds of politics, civil society and the media.
