IBIS – Intercultural Centre for research, documentation, education and counselling e.V. has been working since 1994 for the peaceful coexistence of people of different backgrounds.
IBIS e.V. views integration as the respectful and equal co-existence of all people with their individual and cultural differences and similarities.
Traditionally, the association mainly works in the areas of: language courses for migrants, refugee counselling, anti-discrimination, educational projects, cultural events, printing and publishing.
Human rights form the basis of the work and IBIS e.V. sees their observance as critical for any successful integration of migrants and other disadvantaged groups.
This includes the inviolability of human dignity, the right to asylum, protection from discrimination, the right to a human rights-oriented education and the right to political participation.
