Hardly a day goes by without another upwardly revised forecast of the number of refugees in the media. In the previous ten months of 2015, almost 760,000 people in Germany registered as asylum seekers, and many observers are expecting significantly more than 1,000,000 refugees in 2015.

This presents municipalities in particular with unusual challenges, since the accommodation of asylum seekers makes enormous personal and logistical demands. Despite the widespread and exemplary willingness to help of the German population, critical voices are also increasing.

In order to prevent a negative basic mood towards refugees from building up or even discharging, professional communication between the city administration and citizens aimed at objectivity, information transfer and transparency is essential.
