The study released on Tuesday was conducted by government agencies and research institutes, and surveyed more than 2,300 adult refugees who arrived in Germany between 2013 and early 2016.
The report noted that refugees showed a “high degree of agreement with fundamental democratic values”, and in some cases showed that asylum seekers were slightly more democratic than Germans: 96 percent of refugees said that a democracy was the best form of state government, compared to 95 percent of German citizens who agreed in a separate World Values Survey.
Separately, most refugees had taken some form of class to acquaint themselves with the country and language. About one third of those surveyed had already taken an integration course with BAMF, while 38 percent had taken an unspecified language course. Another roughly one third had not or could not yet take a language class.
