Issues of Immigration and Integration ACPO Geneva
Young immigrants on the outskirts of Geneva not only struggle with the linguistic situation at the French/German language border, but also with their professional integration. Despite their different immigrant backgrounds, they usually form communities quickly; however, they do not find access to the local Swiss people. During the project, students wrote a story about their experiences and role-played it.

Culture Week BZR Rorschach-Rheintal
After each Forum Theater sequence, a plenary discussion followed: What do you think? Could A behave differently? Why is she behaving that way? All of the 100 students got quickly involved.

Applying for Naturalization in Switzerland BFS Basel
Successful integration is a condition for naturalization. Naturally, the question about identity comes up when thinking about naturalization – Can I petition for naturalization and stay true to myself? What will I give up? What is Switzerland expecting from me if I want to become Swiss?
