European Management of Migration and Refugees - Consequences for mobility and political stability in transit countries

Principal investigator Guri Tyldum (Principal Investigator)
Description
The project will investigate how policies of migration management and protection systems shape access to protection, education and sustainable livelihoods for refugee populations, refugee mobility (their decision to repatriate, remain or move on to Europe or other third countries) and political developments and political stability in host communities. The analysis will focus in particular on the humanitarian responses and how refugees are provided access to education and sustainable livelihoods. The project will provide recommendations for international interventions to governments and humanitarian organisations on ways to improve current policies of migration management and refugee protection. Recommendations will focus on policy options that give refugees better access to education and sustainable livelihoods, limit tension between host population and refugees, limit secondary mobility and facilitate repatriation when possible. The project will target four countries and regions with large refugee populations: Lebanon (the Bekaa Valley); Jordan (Amman); Uganda (Nakivale); Niger (Agadez). The analysis will draw on existing, high-quality survey data on refugee and host populations in three of the regions, in combination with document analysis and qualitative interviews. We approach the refugee protection systems as systems of practice and aim to describe the structural factors that create opportunities for action for international actors, refugees, local governments and host populations, how the various actors respond to these opportunities (or lack of opportunities), as well as how they understand their own situation and opportunities.

The Political Economy of West African Migration Governance

Principal investigator Franzisca Zanker (Principal Investigator)
Description
"The unprecedented influx of refugees and other migrants to Europe in 2015 also led to a renewed push towards a common EU African agenda of dealing with the challenges of migration. Numerous meetings, events and summits have been (at least partly) dedicated for this purpose, including the Valetta summit in 2015, the G20 summit in Hamburg in 2017 and the EU-Africa Summit in Abidjan in November 2017. Numerous bilateral, regional and continental Afro-European frameworks and policies pre-date and accompany these political gatherings. Yet, the current approach – including through the EU partnership framework – is not working. The annual 2018 MEDAM assessment report argues that EU countries should engage more actively with African countries, in this case in order to increase legal labour opportunities in return for cooperation on re-admission. Such active engagement between African and European countries is still lacking. On the one hand, critics highlight the tendency for migration cooperation to favour European interests rather than those of their African counterparts, incoherence in EU policy-making and the exclusionary nature of many of the summits and events. On the other hand, African governments have been criticised for their lack of engagement in migration governance. One major problem is how little is known about interests, stakes and stakeholders when it comes to governing migration, including emigration (both regular and irregular), immigration and dealing with displaced persons. The Political Economy of West African Migration Governance project endeavours to highlight the political dimension of migration governance (i.e. what are the real [sometimes hidden] interests and power asymmetries) and the multiple stakeholders (including civil society and sub-national ones). To do this the project considers how migration governance instruments and institutions are made and implemented, the stakes and stakeholders involved or excluded and the societal discourse that surrounds these interests. The qualitative study focuses on four case studies - the Gambia, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal – and will be based on fieldwork including semi-structured interviews in the respective countries. The project is participatory by design and a dissemination event series will take place in order to discuss and debate our findings with local experts in Abuja, Banjul, Dakar and Niamey. In addition there will be a final workshop to discuss our findings comparatively with scholars and civil society actors from all four WAMIG countries. This will take place in Accra in cooperation with the Centre for Migration Studies. More information on these events can be found here. Funded by the Stiftung Mercator, the Political Economy of West African Migration Governance project is undertaken within the framework of the Mercator Dialogue on Asylum and Migration (MEDAM). MEDAM is a three-year research and consultation project that identifies and closes gaps in existing research and develops specific recommendations for policy makers."

West-African Mobilities

Principal investigator Monique Bertrand (Principal Investigator)
Description
The MOBOUA project has involved 16 researchers in four countries of West Africa, including 9 parners in Abdou Moumouni (Niamey), Mali and Ouagadougou Universities. Its matter of research focuses on the fact that far more migrants move within the regional area than seek to leave it. It is therefore dissociated from other topics strictly related to the remittances sent by "migrants" who are settled in the North ; or to an increasing xenophobia trend in the African political context. The approach has enlightened analytically various prospectes (international, national, local) of the mobility process, and their space-time articulation. Arguments are particularly based on three types of measurement : 1. International Movements within West Africa 2. Intra-Urban residential and daily movements, extending the migration towards cities. 3. Interactions between the African migrants and other components, either migrant or non-migrant, of their society and settlements. With this intention, the project has argued the internal dynamics and diversity of a "South, today"; it has analysed the population mobility and relocation by combining two methods in a multidisciplinary set of research: biographical and multigenerational investigations following the migrants, according to their respective trajectories; surveys led in significant sites of access to economic and social resources for rural and urban dwellers. MOBOUA has thus capitalized a strong methodological investment on its field.
