"Sorge um die Seele": Incorporating officers from post-migration backgrounds in the German police

"Sorge um die Seele": Incorporating officers from post-migration backgrounds in the German police

The aim of this article is primarily a pragmatic one: to analyze police work by investigating the ways diversity is dealt with in the civil service in Germany, a country often described as hostile to diversity. In doing so from the standpoint of the police officers who contribute, through their work, in educating, recruiting, and counseling officers from post-migration backgrounds, the article sheds light on how change happens within the organization. At the center of this article is an ideal-type of one of the ways, or techniques, drawn upon when dealing with diversity in the police.

Keywords:

police; diversity; Germany; Max Weber
