    Germany is currently in a very difficult period in regard to race relations. Racism is a difficult concept to discuss in a legal-administrative capacity due to a lack of recognition of structural or institutional racism. Additionally, the term ‘race’ (German: ‘Rasse’) has associations in German with the biological race-thinking of the Nazi era, which stifles clear and candid dialogue about certain forms of contemporary racism.
