Workshop with Youth Welfare Office Stuttgart

Date: 22 April 2010, 9:00 - 17:00

Place: Max-Planck-Institut zur Erforschung multireligiöser und multiethnischer Gesellschaften (MPI MMG), Hermann-Föge-Weg 11, Halle


This workshop is part of a cooperation that developed out of field work carried out by Boris Nieswand in Stuttgart in 2009. The goal of the workshop is to discuss the findings and analyses of Nieswand’s ethnographic research with 11 staff members of the counseling center and to think about ways in which foundational research and youth welfare office practices can profit from one another. Questions regarding the significance of socio-cultural diversity for the counseling center’s work and sensible strategies for dealing with it will play an important role within this context.
