Date created : Latest update :
A few months ago Germans were reveling in their multicultural football team reaching the World Cup Final. The team seemed like a great snapshot of a country that was truly immigrant-friendly. However since then, Chancellor Angela Merkel said that attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany had failed, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate. But many immigrants are finding it difficult to integrate into a country which often refuses to recognise their professional qualifications.
