"The Max Planck Society is Germany's most successful research organization. Since its establishment in 1948, no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates have emerged from the ranks of its scientists, putting it on a par with the best and most prestigious research institutions worldwide. The more than 15,000 publications each year in internationally renowned scientific journals are proof of the outstanding research work conducted at Max Planck Institutes – and many of those articles are among the most-cited publications in the relevant field."

Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law
'The Institute was founded in 1924 and located at the City Palace in Berlin. In 1949, it was established anew as the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg by the Max Planck Society. It focuses on basic research in public international law, European Union law and comparative constitutional and administrative law. The Institute's research examines legal issues from the perspective of legal doctrine and theory, systematizes and compares, and contributes to the development of law and to addressing current problems. In addition, the Institute hosts many visiting scholars from around the world who pursue their own research. The Institute also advises national, European and international institutions.' (source)
Through immigration, our society is becoming more diverse. However, the integration and inclusion of migrants is often difficult. ANUSCHEH FARAHAT is interested in the question of how this inclusion can be promoted through the means of law. In particular, she focuses on the structural obstacles migrants face when attempting to participate in society, such as when entering the job market or higher education. As she explains in this video, she, therefore, examines how the constitutional law in Germany can be used to combat structural inequalities. Establishing a definition of inclusion that sees it as an interactive process involving multiple actors, not only the migrants, she has found that the German constitution already provides a tool to implement such an interactive form of integration: the principle of equality. Of course, the law can only achieve integration to a certain extent as it is also dependent on the participation of the public.
