European Institute for Migration, Integration and Islam

contact, support, direction

Who we are - 

We consider our pluralistic society, the vast migration at our door step and the many Migrant churches in our midst as a real opportunity! At EIMI, we seek to strengthen and appreciate this diversity, reduce reservations and anxieties as well as strengthen inter-relational competences. 

For this purpose AWM established the European Institute of Migration, Intergration and Islam (EIMI) in 2013. 

We seek to promote, both in churches as well as in politics, a path away from parallel structures toward integration.


Yassir Eric is the director of this department. He is supported by AWM staff members and an international consulting committee.
