Integration, refugees, moral and values education, knowledge acquisition, pilot study


For a successful integration of young immigrants in the new culture and its values it is not sufficient that they acquire knowledge about the society; rather, moral and values education with respect to the justification of the respective values is required. We present an educational concept that permits to combine knowledge acquisition and moral education: “Values and Knowledge Education” (VaKE).

The discussion addresses the question of applicability.
