In times of globalisation and the process of the European unification the importance of single nations is more and more in doubt. Beck speaks about world-citizens and world-parties; Huntington faces not only states but also civilizations or cultural centres as the most likely enemies of the future. We are especially interested in the reception of processes of globalisation by young people and its relevance in their readiness to move in the globalised world. In this context we will present results of quantitative and qualitative works that have been developed at the FU, Berlin in the context of the “Xenos- project” that has been encouraged by the German government. Besides a project of the VW foundation about emotional sensations of young people with and without migration background in Berlin will be illustrating our thoughts.
