By Ingmar Zalewski

Während in den gegenwärtigen Debatten um Flucht und Asyl vorwiegend über Geflüchtete gesprochen wird, liefert Ingmar Zalewski einen empirischen Beitrag aus der Perspektive der Betroffenen. Er stellt dar, wie Menschen aus Kamerun während ihres Asylverfahrens durch Benachteiligungen, Bevormundungen sowie alltagsrassistische Erfahrungen in einen Strudel sozialer Exklusionsmechanismen geraten. Datengrundlage ist ein mehrmonatiger Aufenthalt in einem Brandenburger Geflüchtetenheim, im Zuge dessen die Subjektperspektive der Geflüchteten durch teilnehmende Beobachtungen und qualitative Einzelinterviews erschlossen wurde. Diese sozialpsychologische Feldstudie liefert einen Debattenbeitrag, der sich einem vereinseitigten Verständnis von Integration entzieht und eindringlich die Frage nach gesellschaftlicher Teilhabe stellt.
