As an international media network and monitoring centre for migration, integration and cultural diversity in Europe. CIVIS actively accompanies the formation of medial opinion on all relevant socio-political issues in the European immigration society. The CIVIS Media Prize annually recognizes European programme contributions on radio, film, television and the Internet. With international programme conferences and lectures, CIVIS provides an important European forum for debate. Whether in Basel, Bonn, Berlin or Vienna – the new social WE lies at the heart of talks on current issues and of controversial discussions. The charitable foundation is active nationally and internationally from its base in Cologne.
