Example text

The typology of figurational shifts allows us to understand how the balance of power between established residents and migrants has been transformed since the 1960s. If we follow the four sequences of figurational change displayed in these sections, we see how and why the conflict between established residents and migrants has developed in Germany. Each figuration stands for a particular hierarchical relationship between majority and minority and is ultimately characterized by its own particular interactive roles and power differentials between immigrants, intermediate actors and established residents.

Overstretching dialogue discourse can launch a spiral of escalating conflict. In terms of conflict sociology, an inter-faith or intercultural dialogue is only helpful if it knows its limits, disciplines itself to set aside fundamental theological differences in favour of cultivating cross-cultural sympathies, and rejects any chief witness role, however attractive. But such a dialogue is also helpful to the extent that it creates equality through the symmetry of alternately placing each side in the role of guest and host.

The term refers to the practice of gradually undermining something rather than attacking it head on; in the particular context of German debates about the rights of guests, it is used to draw attention to the supposedly deceitful activities of a political opponent who exploits the generous cooperation of a quasi-host, evoking the image of a ungrateful guest exploiting the host’s generosity and potentially leaving him impoverished (Pitt-Rivers 1977/1992, p. 17) (in other words, eating up all his salami).
