    Maybe it’s a desired outcome, from Prof. Dr. Böhmer’s and the CDU’s perspective, for the contracts to alienate those who would find them alienating. Perhaps one way to achieve a higher success rate at integration is to filter out the less-motivated. As for the enforceability of the contracts, perhaps they could serve as some sort of estoppel, e.g. in a civil lawsuit involving a conflict between a some home country cultural practice and another party’s rights or obligations under German and EU law. I.e., the immigrant would be estopped from asserting the cultural practice as a justification or basis for reducing liability. And perhaps even in a criminal case, from asserting it as a defense or in mitigation.
