Information for refugees and asylum seekers

For refugees and asylum seekers, there are many things that are new when they come to Germany: the language, the culture, the customs and the regulations that apply here.

It is important that they know, respect and identify themselves with our fundamental values so that they quickly find their way in our country – in particular the values of democracy, equal rights for men and women, tolerance, freedom of speech and religion as well as the basic principles of our legal system, such as the independence of our judiciary.

For this purpose, we have prepared information material about the German legal system especially for refugees and asylum seekers.

Information material in different languages is available on the following subpages:

1. Five films about the German legal system:

2. Four handouts with information on the German legal system:

3. Information brochure about the German legal system:
