Hannover is a cosmopolitan and diverse city, and we regard migration as an integral part of our social reality. The diversity of cultures and the diversity of lifestyles are an intrinsic and fundamental aspect of our urban community. 

The City of Hannover is committed to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and seeks equality of participation and opportunity in the economic, political, cultural and social life of the city for all its inhabitants, irrespective of where they or earlier generations of their families were born.
