▶Mesut Ozil's retirement controversy and Germany's racism scandal

After the 2018 World Cup came to an end, Germany has been embroiled in a bout of ill-tempered soul-searching about national identity. That's because Mesut Özil, a third-generation Turkish-German, announced his retirement on the grounds of racism in a lengthy statement via Twitter. Ozil's decision to pose for a photograph with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan was also criticized by the public that doubted his national allegiance.

Germany has been actively accepting immigrants since the 1960s as a means to solve the labor shortage problem. But many experts point out that while Germany was busy accepting immigrants, it significantly lacked any protocol to truly help them integrate into the society. German Chancellor Angela Merkel even went so far as to say that Germany's integration policies has failed.
How did Germany find itself in this conundrum that's so heavily marked by racism and discrimination?

In this week's episode of [The Point: World Affairs], we sit down with German professor Anthony C. Adler from Yonsei University to analyze the causes and countermeasures of Germany's immigration problems. We also connect with a reporter from DW News and an immigration expert to hear the local public sentiment and evaluate Germany's immigration policies.
