Abstract

This report analyses how public squares in residential urban areas can be used for the integration of refugees and gives recommendations to policy makers on that matter. It does so in the context of the current ‘refugee crisis’, with a focus on Breslauer Platz in Berlin. The promotion of positive social interaction between refugees and the local population in their arrival country is considered a crucial factor for the successful integration of refugees. Public squares offer a great opportunity to increase social interaction and community cohesion.
