Berlin is planning a 35 percent migrant quota for the administration

Berlin wants to be the first German federal state to introduce a migrant quota in the public service. Accoring to the corresponding bill by the Senate Administration for Integration and available to Der Tagesspiegel, a migrant quota of 35 percent is planned, which corresponds to the current population share of people with a migration background in Berlin. The regulation is part of a new version of the Participation and Integration Act.

The quota should apply to the entire state administration and to all state companies such as BSR and BVG, but also to foundations, public prosecutors and courts. If possible, the law should be passed by the Berlin House of Representatives by the September election.

Berlin's Senator for Labor, Integration and Social Affairs, Elke Breitenbach (The Left), told Der Tagesspiegel: "We claim that all people in this city have the same opportunities. We don't accept structural discrimination."

That is why the Law on Participation and Integration has to be reformed "on the basis of experience over the past ten years". The diversity of Berlin must be reflected in the public administration. "Fixed rules and clear funding in the form of a quota are necessary so that more people with a migration history are employed in the administration."
