Many immigrants moved all over the world through centuries. Some people say there are only advantages to live in a multicultural society, others think today there disadvantages.

So, we will see in a first part the advantages of a multicultural society and the disadvantages in a second part before concluding.

Migrants came to find better works, a better life, political stability, security; so they wanted to be accepted. Besides we can try to solve their integration problems if we know them better.

Moreover, ethnic minorities can keep and practice quietly their culture if they respect laws in their new country. Otherwise, they have to learn the new language, to care about their new country, to be proud about this identity; to participate in social, professional and cultural life; to be tolerant; to live in harmony with others.

Nevertheless, living in a multicultural society could have disadvantages.

On the other hand, migrants are rejected by racist people when they show too much, outside their difference. It may create tensions in the new country; especially as we have an economic crisis. Foreigners are often seen as the guilty.
