Maatregelen gericht op asielzoekers uit veilige landen: analyse van een beleidslogica

Authors Research and Documentation Centre, Ministry of Justice and Securtiy, Bianca Szytniewski, Wendy Buysse, ...
Description
In dit onderzoek is de beleidslogica van de maatregelen gericht op asielzoekers uit veilige landen onderzocht en gekeken naar de ontwikkeling van de instroom en het vertrek van deze groep asielzoekers in de periode 2013-2018, waarbij in 2018 is gekeken naar het eerste half jaar. Door ook de instroom-en vertrekcijfers van asielzoekers uit veilige landen van voor 2016 mee te nemen in de analyse is het mogelijk inzicht te geven in de instroom en het vertrek van deze groep asielzoekers voor en na de invoering van de maatregelen. De volgende vragen stonden centraal in dit onderzoek: 1.Welke maatregelen gericht op asielzoekers uit veilige landen zijn genomen en welke doelen werden hiermee beoogd? 2.Hoe zijn die maatregelen uitgevoerd? 3.In hoeverre is het aannemelijk dat deze maatregelen invloed hebben gehad op de instroom en het vertrek van deze groep asielzoekers – en dat de maatregelen hebben bijgedragen aan de vier doelen genoemd in de Kamerbrief van 17 november 2016?

IAB-BAMF-SOEP Befragung von Geflüchteten

Principal investigator Herbert Brücker (Principal Investigator), Yuliya Kosyakova (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Die IAB-BAMF-SOEP Befragung von Geflüchteten ist ein Kooperationsprojekt zwischen dem IAB, dem SOEP am DIW Berlin und dem Forschungszentrum des Bundesamtes für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF-FZ). Sie enthält Informationen von Asylbewerberinnen und Asylbewerbern über ihre sozio-ökonomischen Eigenschaften, ihre Bildung, ihre Migrationsmotive und -wege, ihre Lebensumstände früher und heute und ihre Werte und Einstellungen. Die erste Welle wurde 2016 erhoben und enthält 4.816 erwachsene Geflüchtete, die seit 2013 in Deutschland angekommen sind. Die Stichprobe wurde aus dem Ausländerzentralregister (AZR) gezogen und ist repräsentativ für die Asylbewerber, die zwischen 1.1.2013 und 31.1.2016 eingereist sind und bis spätestens Ende Juni 2016 ihren Asylantrag gestellt haben. Asylbewerber mit höherer Bleibewahrscheinlichkeit zum Zeitpunkt der Stichprobenziehung wurden aufgrund des längsschnittlichen Designs überdurchschnittlich berücksichtigt (z.B. Afghanen, Iraker und Syrer). Zusätzlich wurden Frauen und Personen über 30 Jahren überrepräsentiert. Mit entsprechender Gewichtung können dennoch repräsentative Ergebnisse erzielt werden. Projekt 3530 is Nachfolgeprojekt von 1783 für weitere drei Jahre. Im Rahmen des Projekts wird eine repräsentative Panelbefragung von Asylbewerbern und Flüchtlingen in Deutschland durchgeführt. Dadurch werden erstmals umfassende Befragungsdaten über die soziale Situation dieser Bevölkerungsgruppen gewonnen und für die Arbeitsmarktpolitik und Forschung nutzbar gemacht. Projektziel Ziel ist der Aufbau einer Datengrundlage für die Flüchtlingsforschung, die breit angelegt ist und mit Hilfe derer sowohl für die Politikberatung als auch für die Forschung belastbare Ergebnisse erzielt werden können."

Dissemination of information on voluntary return: how to reach irregular migrants not in contact with the authorities – Luxembourg.

Authors Lisa Li, David Petry, Birte Nienaber
Description
The focus of this study lies with irregular migrants who are not in contact with the authorities. Due to their irregular situation, it is difficult to provide information on the numbers of persons that are irregularly staying in Luxembourg. Several actors were able to provide some estimations on the scale of irregular migrants, but these estimations can only ever be partial. Statistics are available concerning the assisted voluntary return and reintegration from Luxembourg programme that is operated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) as well as concerning the counselling services offered by different non-governmental organisations and associations. However, most of these numbers refer to migrants that are known to the authorities, mainly because they are rejected applicants for international protection.

Between Accommodation and Integration: Comparing Institutional Arrangements for Asylum-seekers

Principal investigator Steven Vertovec (Principal Investigator)
Description
Over the past year, for at least three-quarters of a million asylum-seekers from a variety of backgrounds, Germany has exceptionally engaged in the task of accommodation (providing housing and sustenance, financial support, healthcare and legal services). It is widely recognized that the next task - and one of perhaps greatest public and policy concern - is that of facilitating asylum-seekers' 'integration'. Yet integration - however defined - already begins during the stage of accommodation. It is the nature of specific institutional arrangements - created during the process of accommodation - that is decisive for conditioning and channeling subsequent processes of integration. Further, integration can only proceed successfully if asylum-seekers' own diverse needs and aspirations are addressed. Funded by the VolkswagenStiftung, a pilot project at the Max-Planck-Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity has examined these issues in numerous Flüchtlingsunterkünfte (asylum-seekers' housing centers) in one city. Preliminary findings have underlined the key role that Betreiber (facility operators) play in accommodation and integration. Building on the pilot, this project compares different kinds of Betreiber in three different to explain the key factors that condition and determine distinctive accommodation outcomes. It is guided by the following questions: What accounts for similarities and differences in asylum-seekers' housing centers? What are the critical roles and outcomes of differential facility operators in managing these? How do varying institutional arrangements address the needs and aspirations of asylum-seekers, what social positions ensue, and what prospects do these hold for asylum-seekers? Consequently, we will be better able to conceive, analyze and theorize the nature and effects of social positioning among asylum-seekers in Germany.

African Refugees' Influx in Israel from a Socio-Political Perspective

Authors Haim YACOBI
Description
This paper focuses on socio-political dynamics in Israel in relation to the increased flow of African refugees and asylum seekers. The main argument presented here is that there is an inherent tension between the ethnocentric ideologies and the questions of territorial control that define Israel, and the pressure exerted by NGOs and civil society in relation to the ongoing influx of African asylum seekers and refugees. The theoretical insight that emerges is that the arrival of "foreigners" in Israel challenges Israeli identity politics and attitudes towards the "Other", whilst simultaneously revealing complexity in Israel's ethno-national identity and collective history.

Asylum Policy Index

Description
The Asylum Policy Index addressed the change in the nature (restrictiveness) of policies for asylum seekers in 19 OECD countries. It focuses on the changes in asylum and related policies in these countries between 1999 and 2006. The index is based almost entirely on legislation rather than on general impressions about the toughness of asylum policy. Taking 1997 as a baseline, the score decreases by -1 if the policy adopted is open to asylum seekers, or increases by 1 if the policy is restrictive. It is important to stress that this is a crude measure of policy change that does not reflect differences across countries in the finer details of policy change or in its enforcement. Nor is it an absolute measure of toughness but merely the difference in policy stance as compared with the beginning of 1997. The 15 components of policy are divided into three groups, each consisting of five components. Those representing the ability of asylum seekers to gain access to the country’s territory are labelled access; those representing the toughness of the country’s refugee status determination procedure are labelled processing; and those relating to the welfare of asylum seekers during and after processing are labelled welfare. The asylum policy index discussed in the text was constructed from annual country reports on policy developments given in three sources. These are: the OECD’s annual publication International Migration Outlook (Paris: OECD) (formerly Trends in International Migration), the country reports of the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (2006), and the country reports of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants.

Managing Migrant Return through 'Voluntariness'

Description
The fundamental weakness of nation state and EU efforts to effectively manage migration to Europe lies in ensuring the return of foreigners who pass or avoid border controls but are then neither granted asylum nor a residence permit. Many Member States thereby increasingly rely on public policies for the so-called ‘voluntary return’ of irregular migrants and (refused) asylum seekers. Very little is known about how these approaches work in practice and whether they meet stated policy goals and discharge state obligations regarding migrants’ human rights. The project REvolTURN addresses this research gap through a close and comparative analysis of ‘voluntary return’ policies in Austria and the UK, including their adoption, implementation and immediate outcome. It examines 1) how voluntariness of return is constructed and framed in law, policy and public discourse, 2) which notions of voluntariness are crucial for policy implementation, and 3) what impact this has on migrants’ own decision-making about their return. My innovative and interdisciplinary mixed-method approach combines comparative policy and discourse analysis, detailed institutional ethnography through observation and in-depth interviews and a survey among potential returnees. REvolTURN addresses a key priority of the Horizon 2020 work programme for 2016-17: to better manage migration, and will also contribute to recent scholarship regarding the in/effectiveness of migration policies and the agency of migrants holding no or highly precarious statuses. The project has three main objectives: 1) to better understand the role and functioning of voluntariness in the context of state-managed migratory return; 2) to develop a framework for assessing and comparing these roles and functions, including their effectiveness; and 3) to thereby contribute to evidence-based and workable policy solutions that increase the number of genuinely voluntary returns without undermining the very logic underlying this approach.
