Bochum goes international!

At the first multicultural conference of foreigners in Germany, the political demands under discussion have a timeless relevance.

The "Kemnade '75 International" takes place from 27 to 29 June 1975 at the moated castle of Kemnade in Bochum - the first foreigners' conference in Germany. Experts discuss the social and political position of foreigners in a nation that insists on not being an "immigration country".

Special criticism is directed at the lack of integration. In addition to poor housing and educational opportunities, the limited political rights of foreign residents are identified as an underlying cause. A key conference demand is for foreigners to be granted active and passive voting rights in municipal elections.
