By Wolf-Dietrich Bukow,Claudia Nikodem,Erika Schulze,Erol Yildiz

Einleitung Einleitung was once heißt hier Parallelgesellschaft? eleven was once heißt hier Parallelgesellschaft? Zum Umgang mit Differenzen Wolf-Dietrich Bukow/Claudia Nikodem/Erika Schulze/Erol Yildiz Die Rede von der Parallelgesellschaft speist sich aus zwei sehr unterschiedlichen Quellen, nämlich einerseits aus der Stadtforschung und andererseits aus einem migrationspolitischen Alarmismus der Medien. Allerdings geben beide Quellen einzeln nicht viel her, nur verknüpft scheint daraus überhaupt eine Debatte entstanden zu sein. Dennoch bleibt es erstaunlich, dass sie sich entfalten konnte und seit nunmehr intestine acht Jahren sogar eine beträchtliche Wirkung zeigt. Bis heute gibt es quick keine systematische Auseinandersetzung mit Parallelgese- schaften und so etwas ist wohl auch kaum zu erwarten, weil institutionell geschlossene Gesellschaften in einer globalisierten Weltgesellschaft kaum vorstellbar sind. Doch gehen wir lieber langsam vor und kreisen die Thematik schrittweise ein. Dann wird auch deutlich, an welcher Stelle die Beiträge dieses Sammelbandes einhaken. Aus welchen Quellen wird hier geschöpft? Wie oben erwähnt kann guy zunächst einmal zwei Quellen ausmachen, die e- zeln kaum ertragreich genug sind, aber zusammen synergetische Effekte herv- bringen.
