Germany is currently faced with the task of accommodating many fugitives and opening up new life perspectives for them. The individuals that have come to Germany to seek protection in recent years do not form a homogeneous group. Amongst other things, they differ according to gender, age, origin, cultural background, education, work experience, language skills, migration and flight experience, future plans, and other factors. In light of this diversity, one-fits-all measures often prove futile, resources are badly used and opportunities are wasted.
