RAA/Office for Intercultural Affairs

The focus of work at the RAA/Office for Intercultural Affairs

Intercultural concept (ICC)

One major foundation of the work is the "Concept for Intercultural Affairs in the City of Essen", which was passed unanimously in 1999 by the City Council, and which has since been implemented and developed further.

"Deutsch lernen in Essen" (Learning German in Essen) network (

The Essen agency network is a voluntary association of recognised language course agencies and various service providers for the implementation of integration language courses.


The task of the RAA/Office for Intercultural Affairs is to advise and support teaching and specialist staff at Essen's primary and special schools, as well as at secondary schools of levels I and II. Thematic focal points include intercultural education, multilingualism and language support (German as a second language).

Migrant self-help organisations (MSO)

The organised self-help provided by migrants, for migrants, is an important partner in intercultural working. Many of these organisations have joined forces to create an umbrella association.
