On New Year’s Eve, there was a picture in Berlin that you won’t soon forget. Hundreds of young people were out for a riot at the turn of the year and attacked police officers and rescue workers with firecrackers and rockets. Several emergency services were injured in the violent excesses, for which mainly young men with a migration background were responsible.

Such desert scenes are unthinkable in Switzerland. Nevertheless, it could have happened in Germany if we had let the integration work slide. One example is the Längi district in the municipality of Pratteln BL. The quarter used to be considered a focal point and was even referred to as the “Pratteln ghetto” due to the high proportion of foreigners.
