Zusammenfassung: 
The article examines the interaction patterns between the national government and immigrant groups in Germany. The German government has established two kinds of consultation procedures: one for issues of immigrant integration in a more general sense and a separate state-Islam dialogue. It is shown here that by means of these bodies governmental actors sought to gain regular access to immigrant minorities and - at the same time - established opportunity structures through which they could organise. The specific shape and characteristics of the consultation structures and process are found to be a result of the specific historical contexts and problem constellations, established patterns of state-society relations, and the characteristics of the political system.
