Das Buch bringt im Kontext der aktuellen state of affairs unterschiedliche Facetten der komplexen Thematik zur Geltung. Es ist inter- und transdisziplinär angelegt und verbindet theoretische Grundlagen und wissenschaftliche Zugänge mit Handlungsorientierungen und Praxisbeispielen. Geflüchtete bringen sich mit ihren Geschichten zur Sprache. Grundlegende Aspekte werden in theologischer, sozialethischer, soziologischer und volkswirtschaftlicher Perspektive beleuchtet und bearbeitet. Gefragt wird, welche Allianzen in der Flüchtlingsarbeit notwendig sind, und unter welchen Bedingungen unterschiedliche Subjekte und gesellschaftliche Akteure mit ihren jeweiligen Prägungen, process- und Handlungslogiken erfolgreich zusammenarbeiten können - z.B. Geflüchtete und Einheimische, Ehrenamtliche und Hauptamtliche, Kirchen und Kommunen. Bezogen auf unterschiedliche Handlungsfelder kommen Aufgaben, Projekte und Initiativen zur Darstellung. Die Skala reicht dabei von der Betreuung unbegleiteter Minderjähriger über Integrationsaufgaben der Kindertagesstätten und Schulen bis hin zu Netzwerken für Ehrenamtliche und spezifischen Fragen der Entwicklung von Kirchengemeinden. Anforderungen an eine europäische Flüchtlingspolitik und an eine Flüchtlingsarbeit in christlicher Verantwortung verschränken sich mit Chancen und Zumutungen gesellschaftlicher Veränderung. Der Band enthält schließlich exemplarische Dokumente, in denen sich wichtige gesellschaftliche Diskurse widerspiegeln.
