Die volkswirtschaftlichen Effekte der Vertriebenen und ihre Integration in Westdeutschland, 1945-70

Principal investigator Sebastian Braun (Principal Investigator ), Michael Kvasnicka (Principal Investigator ), Toman Omar Mahmoud (Cooperation Partner), Nadja Dwenger (Cooperation Partner), Henning Weber (Cooperation Partner)
Description
Die Flucht und Vertreibung der Deutschen aus Ost- und Mitteleuropa ist eine der größten erzwungenen Wanderungsbewegungen der Geschichte. Sie betraf mindestens 12 Millionen Menschen, die vor dem Krieg zumeist in den ehemaligen Ostgebieten des Deutschen Reichs oder im Sudetenland lebten. Der Zustrom der Vertriebenen führte zu einer drastischen Zunahme der westdeutschen Bevölkerung. Im September 1950 war etwa jeder sechste Westdeutsche ein Vertriebener. Trotz der großen historischen Bedeutung der Vertreibung haben bislang nur sehr wenige empirische Studien die volkswirtschaftlichen Effekte der Vertriebenen und ihre Integration in Westdeutschland untersucht. Und das obwohl - im Gegensatz zu den meisten anderen erzwungenen Wanderungsbewegungen - qualitativ hochwertige Daten über die Vertriebenen existieren. Zudem erleichtern die historischen Umstände der Vertreibung empirische Kausalanalysen. So waren die Vertriebenen nicht eine selektierte Gruppe der Deutschen aus Ost- und Mitteleuropa, sondern repräsentierten einen kompletten Querschnitt ihrer Herkunftsregionen. Außerdem erfolgte die regionale Verteilung der Vertriebenen in Westdeutschland nicht unter ökonomischen Gesichtspunkten, sondern wurde primär durch die Wirren der Kriegs- und Nachkriegszeit bestimmt. Daher spielen viele Störfaktoren, die Kausalanalysen der Auswirkungen von Immigration normalerweise erschweren, für die Analyse der volkswirtschaftlichen Effekte des Vertriebenenzustroms keine oder nur eine untergeordnete Rolle. Die Flucht und Vertreibung der Deutschen ist daher nicht nur von großer historischer Bedeutung. Ihre Analyse erlaubt auch Einblicke in fundamentale und oftmals schwer zu beantwortende Fragen der Migrationsforschung. Vor diesem Hintergrund verfolgt das Projekt zwei Ziele. In einem ersten Schritt wird das Projekt eine umfassende elektronische Datenbank der verfügbaren Vertriebenenstatistiken erstellen und diese der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich machen. Die Datenbank wird insbesondere regional tiefgegliederte Vertriebenenstatistiken der Volks- und Berufszählungen von 1946, 1950, 1961 und 1970 erfassen und diese durch Statistiken aus anderen verfügbaren Quellen ergänzen. In einem zweiten Schritt wird das Projekt ausgewählte Daten der neuen Datenbank verwenden, und die spezifischen Charakteristiken der Vertreibung ausnutzen, um Licht auf drei bislang kaum untersuchte Fragen zu werfen. Erstens wird das Projekt die mittel- bis langfristigen Auswirkungen des Zustroms der Vertriebenen auf die Beschäftigungsstruktur westdeutscher Regionen analysieren und quantifizieren. Zweitens wird das Projekt untersuchen, welche Faktoren den ökonomischen Integrationsprozess der Vertriebenen beschleunigt oder verlangsamt haben. Drittens wird das Projekt die dynamischen Arbeitsmarkteffekte des Zustroms der Vertriebenen analysieren und quantifizieren.

Global economy report : September-October 2015

Authors Daniele LIMONTA, Massimiliano MARCELLINO, Alessandro STANZINI, ...
Description
The objective of the Report is to provide an analysis of the current and expected macroeconomic and financial conditions at the global level, with also a focus on key economic areas such as Europe, the USA and ASIA. In Q2 2015, Eurozone’s aggregate income grew by 0.3% compared to the previous period, one tenth below expected, growing however for the ninth consecutive quarter. The figure is slightly lower than in the previous period (+0.4%). On an annualised basis, income has accelerated at +1.2% (from +1.0%), the highest annual rate since Q3 2011. The ongoing improving trend in the job market continued during the summer months. The leading indicator on employment conditions is still in expansive territory, close to four-year highs. August preliminary estimates point to a stable inflation rate at 0.2%, as in the previous month, in positive territory for the fourth consecutive month and in line with forecasts. Also core inflation is stable at 1%, higher than consensus forecasts (+0.9%). Our forecasts are for a further moderate growth in the euro area, with inflation below the ECB target. For growth, we forecast 1.3% in 2015 and 1.7% in 2016, for inflation around zero in 2015 and 0.9% in 2016. Instead, for the USA we expect growth at 2.7% in 2015, 3.0% in 2016; inflation at 0.1% in 2015, 1.1% in 2016. In Japan, after Q2’s growth decrease, the expectations for the Government’s and BoJ’s intervention are increasing. The productive system suffers a stagnation of internal and external demand, due to China’s slowdown, Japan’s second commercial partner, coupled with domestic consumption weakness. In China, fears persist of a marked slowdown in economic activity, which would have negative effects on a global level, and in particular on emerging markets. On the other hand, there remains substantial space for expansionary fiscal and monetary policy. In this report we present a special focus on economic conditions in China and Japan.

The political economic context of Syria's reconstruction : a prospective in light of a legacy of unequal development

Authors Joseph DAHER
Description
The article seeks to deepen the understanding and analysis around reconstruction dynamics. In this perspective, the economic policies of the Syrian government in the decade prior to the uprising are analysed. The paper then examines how the war transformed the political economy of Syria by considering the effects of destruction on the country’s economic structure. Finally, the article observes the possible scenarios and prospects based on the conflict’s current dynamics to consider new lines of research in the near future in relation to the topic of the war economy and the reconstruction process. Just as the war and its destruction have been used by the regime to intensify neoliberal policies and secure further political power, the way that reconstruction is shaped is another opportunity by which those in power will seek to extend their political and economic domination of Syria.

Zurück nach Pakistan: Die politische Ökonomie der Emotionen in der Remigration

Principal investigator Martin Sökefeld (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das beantragte Forschungsprojekt untersucht Abschiebungen und "freiwillige" Rückkehr aus Deutschland nach Pakistan und fokussiert dabei auf die "politische Ökonomie der Emotionen" in der Remigration, verstanden als Produktion, Austausch und Zirkulation von Emotionen im Gefüge von Beziehungen, Erfahrungen, Verpflichtungen und Erwartungen zwischen (Re-)Migranten, verwandtschaftlichen, lokalen und transnationalen Kontexten, sowie staatlichen und nichtstaatlichen Institutionen. Nachdem Deutschland in den vergangenen Jahren vermehrt zum Zielland pakistanischer Migranten geworden ist, nehmen im Zuge verschärfter Asylpolitik Abschiebungen und die Förderung "freiwilliger" Rückkehr zu. Das Projekt geht davon aus, dass Migration nie ein rein "rationales", "interessengeleitetes" Phänomen ist, sondern dass Migration, Remigration eingeschlossen, stark mit Emotionen verbunden ist. Das Projekt gliedert sich ein in das wachsende ethnologische Forschungsinteresse an Abschiebungen, das jedoch bislang vor allem auf Afrika und Lateinamerika gerichtet ist. Die Untersuchung beginnt mit der sehr unübersichtlichen Situation hinsichtlich Abschiebung und Rückkehrförderung in Deutschland. Darauf aufbauend werden die Emotionen, mit denen die Motivationen, Erwartungen und Erfahrungen der (Re)Migration einhergehen, untersucht, bezogen sowohl auf pakistanische Migranten in Deutschland, denen eine Rückkehr bevorsteht, als auch auf Remigrierte, die schon in Pakistan angekommen sind. Schließlich will das Projekt die gesellschaftlichen Konsequenzen und Effekte der Abschiebung und/oder "freiwilligen" Rückkehr in Pakistan erforschen, indem es das soziale Umfeld von Remigranten (Familie, Verwandtschaftsnetzwerke, peer groups, Dorf oder urbane Nachbarschaft, soziale Netzwerke), seine ökonomischen und (lokal-)politischen Strukturen, und die in diesem Kontext produzierten und zirkulierenden Emotionen untersucht. Neben der empirisch-ethnographischen Untersuchung von Abschiebung und Remigration nach Pakistan beabsichtigt das Projekt, einen theoretischen und methodologischen Beitrag zur Rolle von Emotionen im Kontext von Remigration und Abschiebung zu erarbeiten und damit einen Beitrag zur "anthropology of removal" (N. Peutz) zu leisten.

The Politics of European Citizenship: Migration, Social Rights and Political Economy

Principal investigator Peo Hansen (REMESO Project Leader), Sandy Brian Hager (Participants not from REMESO)
Description
The project traces the politics of European citizenship as it has unfolded since the beginning of the European integration project in the 1950s to the present day. The main focus, though, lies with the more contemporary developments, stretching from the mid-1980s, or the commencement of the EU's Single Market project, until the present. The overall purpose is to critically conceptualize and empirically analyze the historical development of EU citizenship as it has developed alongside the deepening cleavage between the power of EU institutions on the one hand and popular legitimacy among its citizenry on the other; charting its long-range movements vis-à-vis the broader transformations of the EU integration project. This results in an integrated analysis of EU citizenship, one that carefully scrutinizes the deeply interrelated processes of migration, socio-economic transformation and resurgence of ethno-nationalist sentiments at all levels of the EU polity.

The Impact of Labor Emigration on the Demographic and Economic Development of Georgia in the Post-Soviet Period

Authors Mirian TUKHASHVILI, Mzia SHELIA
Description
The deep economic, political, social and cultural crisis faced by Georgia in the post-Soviet period negatively affected the territorial mobility of the population. A catastrophic reduction in the resources required for demographic growth led to sub-replacement fertility. At this point, emigration processes of extremely unnatural intensity, including labour migration, became of the greatest importance. The authors stipulate that a reduction in the negative impact of labor migration on the demographic situation will result in a switch from sub-replacement to replacement level fertility. In the post-Soviet period the Georgian economy collapsed, standards of living deteriorated and many people went to work abroad. Despite the numerous difficulties associated with emigration, its impact on the economy of Georgia was multilateral. Remittances sent by labour migrants to their home country are an important source of poverty reduction for Georgia. Their impact on small business development is positive. In Georgia, the unemployment rate has fallen and there have been positive structural changes in the balance of labour demand and supply. As discussed in the present paper, the harmonization of economic and migration policy includes many important reforms, including the facilitation of the migrants’ return.

Vietnamská etnická ekonomika v českém pohraničí a integrace imigrantů

Description
Projekt se zaměřuje na integraci migrantů z Vietnamu v českém pohraničí, kde jich dlouhodobě pobývá nadprůměrně vysoký počet. Teoretickou inovací, kterou projekt přináší, je výzkum sociální integrace na základě intersekcionality mezi etnickou ekonomikou,transnacionalismem a životem v okrajové lokalitě (tzv. small-scale locality). V rámci etnografického výzkumu bude provedena terénní práce na dvou místech - v městečku a v další blízké menší obci - zaměřená na sociální a ekonomickou integraci a strategievietnamských migrantů. Kontext života v malé obci nabízí možnost dosáhnout nových poznatků o této skupině migrantů, protože dosavadní výzkumy byly prováděny téměř vždy ve velkoměstech. Výzkum se také zaměří na to, jaké změny přináší migrace a integracecizinců ve vybraných obcích, jak se s tím vyrovnává místní obyvatelstvo a samospráva a jaké strategie místní úřady uplatňují.

THE EMIGRATION OF GREEKS AND DIASPORA ENGAGEMENT POLICIES FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Authors J Cavounidis
Description
Since the onset of the economic crisis in 2008, hundreds of thousands of Greeks have left their homeland to seek employment abroad. Unlike past waves of emigration from Greece, the current wave is composed primarily of well-educated youth, whose precious knowledge and skills will be used to the advantage of other countries. Their exodus poses two major policy challenges: first, how to stem the outflow and utilize their knowledge and skills at home and, second, how to harness the enormous potential of Greeks currently abroad to benefit the Greek economy, by mobilizing the diaspora to use their knowledge, skills, talents, resources, and networks in ways which will positively impact the Greek economy. It is on this second set of policy challenges that this book focuses. OECD data on emigrants living in OECD and other countries reveal the increased educational level of those leaving Greece over the last decade compared to their predecessors. The populations of people born in Greece residing in various destination countries differ markedly, however, in terms of their educational profile. The Greek-born population living in the UK is by far the most educated, with nearly 70% holding a university degree, while only a small proportion of the Greek-born population in Germany has a university degree. Nonetheless, the composition of the Greek-born population living in Germany is changing rapidly, given that in the last decade Germany overtook the US as the number-one destination of Greek emigrants and that the educational level of recent Greek emigrants to Germany greatly exceeds that of Greeks who moved to Germany in previous decades. The Greek diaspora contains hugely successful business people, professionals, and academics, while its pool of talent is constantly expanding. So far, Greece has done little to utilise its valuable diaspora to the benefit of its economy. The international experience abounds with examples of successful diaspora policies implemented by both developing and developed countries, such as the creation of professional, scientific, and entrepreneurial networks which facilitate transfers of skills and knowledge and promote business development. For instance, the Talent Network for Innovation of ChileGlobal is composed of highly skilled members of Chile’s diaspora who contribute their time, experience, contacts, knowledge, and skills in order to create innovative Chilean companies and help existing companies to innovate and globalise. The Global Irish Network is composed of very influential Irish and Irish-connected business people based in forty countries who contribute to Irish economic development by promoting foreign direct investment and providing practical assistance to Irish exporters. Indus Entrepreneurs is a network of highly-skilled overseas Indians founded in Silicon Valley in 1992 which organizes hundreds of networking and entrepreneurship events every year and has played a major role in creating high-tech firms in India and stimulating spectacular economic growth. Greece needs to utilize the potential of its diaspora to enhance economic growth. Drawing on the rich international policy experience, the specific diaspora population segments and individuals that can make a valuable contribution to the Greek economy need to be identified and effectively mobilized, in order to capture the development benefits offered by its exceptionally talented diaspora.

Moving Bodies: Omalayitsha, Transnational Practices, and the Embodying of Movement between South Western Zimbabwe and South Africa

Principal investigator Xolani Tshabalala (REMESO Project Leader), Stefan Jonsson (Scientifically Responsible), Carl-Ulrik Schierup (Participants from REMESO)
Description
This project examines circular movement in Southern Africa in the context of entrepreneurship, multiple logics of legitimacy, and everyday interaction between travelers and state functionaries. The project builds on the ideas of the human economy and embodiment as a way to investigate how movement can be understood by those that are involved in its everyday practice. The projects specifically focuses on the practice of private transporting of goods, people and ideas between South-Western Zimbabwe and South Africa. A focus on practices of movement has some implications for the understanding of migration in Southern Africa, of economic livelihoods and of the continued development of the African state in general.

AGRUMIG "Leaving something behind" - Migration governance and agricultural and rural change in "home" communities

Description
Increasing migration to rural areas in Europe has been a great boon for the local economy. To propose effective policies, there is a need for a combined approach of the links between labour mobility and the challenges in a changing agriculture environment. As such, the EU-funded AGRUMIG project will analyse the economic, structural, cultural and ecological factors that affect the relationship between labour mobility and the agricultural sector. It will identify the level of government interference and review national policies and EU partnership agreements. It will promote dialogue with stakeholders to detect structures that can encourage practices and acts for sustainable and gender-impartial rural development.

Media Recruitment and Employment Practices

Authors Eugenia MARKOVA, Sonia MCKAY
Description
A number of researchers in recent years have focused on the changes in employment patterns within the media industry that have resulted in the decline of what was seen as relatively secure full-time employment substituted by an increase in informal, temporary and freelance work, raising concerns about the increased precariousness of media work, with strengthened polarisation between core and peripheral jobs. Yet there has been very little research into the impact of these changes on the recruitment of migrant workers and on the cultural diversity of the workforce. -The main objectives of the study were (a) to examine the issue of workforce diversity in the European media, with specific reference to migrants; (b) to highlight the many aspects of the recruitment process which can pose barriers to those outside the mainstream of society; (c) to explore whether policies in relation to anti-discrimination measures in recruitment were evident within the media sector and the extent to which they have improved employment opportunities for migrants; (d) to establish whether media companies adopted outreach schemes with the aim of recruiting migrant workers and whether they had monitored their implementation; and, (e) to ascertain the issues of discrimination in the industry. -There is no agreement in Europe on what constitutes the ‘economy of culture’, with the media being part of it. Economy of culture is defined for the purpose of this study in terms of David Throsby’s understanding of ‘cultural activities’, which are those characterised by creativity in their production and their output potentially embodies at least some form of intellectual property. When the creative sector enters into the production process of other economic sectors and provides the inputs for the production of non-cultural goods, the resulting activities are referred to as the ‘creative sector’.

Response paper to the research report “The effects of labour migration on the demo-economic development of Georgia in the post-Soviet period”

Authors Mariam CHUMBURIDZE
Description
This paper examines the findings of Tukhashvili and Shelia (2012), which is largely an overview of emigration processes in post-Soviet Georgia presented from a demographic and economic perspective. In their paper, the authors attempt to outline the impact of labour emigration in recent times. However, it seems to generalise trends over the last two decades in a questionable way. Therefore, this paper will discuss findings made by Tukhashvili and Shelia (2012), as well as identifying a few questions for further research. The paper focuses on the following issues: The effects of labour migration on demographics; Labour emigration and its effects on skill development and the Georgian labour market; The impact of emigration and remittances on the economy.

Syria’s manufacturing sector : the model of economic recovery in question

Authors Joseph DAHER
Description
The article seeks to analyse the situation of the Syria’s manufacturing sector which could be a key element to the stability of the economy despite its relatively small size in terms of its weight in the Syrian GDP. The research first provides an overview of the decline in this sector since the 2000s and an assessment of its destruction during the conflict. It then discusses the main challenges and obstacles involved in the redevelopment of activity in the sector. It also examines the Syrian government’s policies to alleviate the difficulties of Syrian manufacturers and the contrasting positions of different members of the economic elite in the country. The current model of economic recovery is, however, far from guaranteeing a rebirth of the sector in a near future.

Development and side effects of remittances in the CIS countries : the case of Republic of Moldova

Authors Alexandru STRATAN, Marcel CHISTRUGA, Victoria CLIPA, ...
Description
Migration is a longstanding phenomenon. However, the impact of remittances on the countries of origins, makes migration a topic of special interest for many researchers. In the Republic of Moldova remittances have become a much discussed and much analyzed subject, Moldova ranking among the economies with the highest share of remittances in terms of GDP. What is more, remittances, unlike FDI, external trade and other sources of income, seem to have a significant impact on economic growth. Within the present work an attempt has been made to capture the positive and negative spillovers that migrants’ remittances have on a country’s socio-economic development. The study summarises previous findings and data sources related to remittances and their influence on the economy. Moreover, authors investigate the link between remittances and economic growth, investments, inflation, employment, human capital and poverty. The study combines the theoretical background with an analysis of the real trends and fluctuations in the Moldovan economy. Миграция существует уже в течение очень длительного периода времени, однако ее масштабы и влияние, которые она оказывает на страну происхождения мигрантов посредством переводимых ими денег (термин, известный в англ. литературе как remittances), представляет особый интерес для многих исследователей. В Республике Молдова денежные переводы стали предметом оживленного обсуждения и анализа, принимая во внимание, что страна входит в группу стран с самой высокой долей денежных переводов в ВВП. Более того, этот внешний финансовый поток, в отличие от прямых иностранных инвестиций, внешней торговли и др., оказывает значительное влияние на экономический рост. В рамках данной работы были сделаны попытки представить положительное и отрицательное воздействие денежных переводов на социально-экономическое развитие страны. Исследование анализирует и обобщает выводы предыдущих разработок, опираясь на источники данных, связанные с денежными переводами и их влиянием на экономику. Кроме того, авторы изучают связь между денежными переводами и экономическим ростом, инвестициями, инфляцией, занятостью, человеческим капиталом и бедностью. Исследование сочетает в себе теоретические основы и анализ реальных тенденций и колебаний в экономике Молдовы.

Polish economic outlook : Poland, the Euro and the Maastricht criteria

Authors Tomasz KOZLUK, Mateusz WALEWSKI, Przemyslaw WOZNIAK
Description
Growth in the Polish economy in the fourth quarter of 2006 and in the whole of 2006 exceeded expectations reaching the highest yearly rate since 1997. The economy expanded at 6.6% yoy in the fourth quarter and at an annual average of 6.1%. The growth was driven by a surge in investment, private consumption and exports. Strong demand was met by an acceleration of industrial production growth and contributed to a reduction of registered unemployment to the lowest levels since the late 1990s. The outlook is positive both in the short and medium term. Forecasts show continued high GDP growth figures in the coming quarters and business sentiment indexes, as well as consumer confidence indexes are at or close to historically high levels. The rapid growth of fixed capital investment adds to the picture of prevailing optimism. The 2006 HICP inflation rate, at an annual average of 1.3%, remained among the EU lowest, while higher GDP growth and tax revenues have led to a smaller-thanexpected fiscal deficit in terms of GDP. Despite the positive perspective there are, however, a number of risks to the downside emerging. First of all, rising demand and credit figures lead to the emergence of some inflationary pressures. On the supply side, despite still high registered unemployment rates, labor supply in some markets seems especially squeezed, in part due to migration. March 2007 inflation exceeded expectations reaching 2.5% and is projected to rise further by the end of 2007. Government spending needs to be cut back given the growth phase of the economic cycle and unprecedented optimism levels. However, plans for consolidation do not seem ambitious and the postponement of tax reforms constitutes a foregone occasion to reorganize the state budget before a slowdown kicks in. For now, there seems little possibility of meeting the 3% of GDP limit on fiscal deficit and having the EU's excessive deficit procedure lifted in the coming years. The housing market in the main cities is booming, fueled largely by increased access to mortgage loans. Supply in the entire construction sector is rising, though is curbed in part by problems of tightening labor supply. Poor credit access in the past leads to the expectation that this fast growth is part of a catch-up effect rather than a bubble. If rising inflation pressures are not contained in time and will ultimately require large(r) interest rate hikes the housing market may be vulnerable to a rapid cooling. Some additional sources of uncertainty in the fourth quarter of 2006 included issues of energy security and rather ambiguous attempts to find a replacement for the outgoing central bank governor. Finally, mainly due to high demand for exports in the EU, the current account deficit remains moderate; however the most recent figures exceeded expectations because of a larger-than-expected trade deficit. Therefore, although the economy is certainly doing well, some fears of overheating are emerging, and there is room for both central bank and government action in order to contain the uncertainties and sustain the high growth. In the new edition of the Polish Economic Outlook we summarize the main macroeconomic developments in the last quarter of 2006 and the first quarter of 2007. We present CASE forecasts for the main variables and introduce a Special Topic section in order to focus on broader economic issues. To start we propose Poland, the Euro and the Maastricht Criteria.

Determining labour shortages and the need for labour migration from third countries in the EU -Luxembourg

Authors Adolfo Sommarribas, Fabienne Becker, Birte Nienaber
Description
Since almost 150 years, Luxembourg depends on two kinds of migration, qualified and non-qualified, in order to deal with the workforce needs of its economy. Compared to the other EU Member States, Luxembourg is the country with the largest proportion of foreigners; however, this foreign population is mainly composed of EU citizens. Due to its size and geographic position, Luxembourg was able to have access to a very particular form of economic migration: cross-border workers. Globalisation has also played a decisive role in the development of economic migration for the Luxembourgish labour market. The financial centre was obliged to become highly specialised in order to remain competitive in regards to other financial centres and to maintain its volume of business. In order to maintain its competitive advantage, Luxembourg needs highly skilled personnel, which the country has found, up until now, within the Greater Region. This reality is even more pronounced with regards to the labour market: the number of actives (salaried and non-salaried) on 31 March 2014 shows that Luxembourgish nationals represented only 31%, EU citizens 65% and third-country nationals only 4%. Cross-border workers from Belgium, France and Germany represented 42% of the workforce and the resident migrant population (EU citizens and third-country nationals) 28%. Cross-border workers, which consist of skilled and highly skilled labour are substantially attracted for two reasons: 1) more competitive salaries on the Luxemburgish labour market ; and 2) a geographical location which allows the commuting of cross-border workers. The attitude of the successive governments was to adapt immigration to the economic needs of the country. The government policy intends to focus on attracting highly added value activities focussed on new technologies (biomedicine and information as well as communication technologies – focusing on IT security), logistics and research. However, being one of the smallest countries in the European Union, Luxembourg has limited human resources to guarantee the growth not only of the financial sector but also of the new technologies sectors. The government introduced the highly qualified worker residence permit in the bill on free movement of persons and immigration approved by law of 29 August 2008 almost a year before of the enactment of the Blue Card Directive to facilitate the entry of third-country national highly qualified workers. However, this reform was isolated and incomplete and took place without making a real evaluation of the workforce demand of the different sectors of the economy. Even though until now Luxembourg has been relying on the workforce from the Greater Region, for some socio-economic and political stakeholders, highly qualified workforces began to become scarce in the Greater region. In addition to the cross-border workers, the lifting of restrictions to access all the sectors of the labour market for citizens of the new Member States (EU-8) can be considered as a mitigating factor for the need to make an evaluation of the workforce demand, because the high salaries paid in Luxembourg became a real pull factor for the highly qualified workers. As a consequence, the political authorities did not foresee a systematic plan on how to address labour shortages in specific sectors of the economy, because there has not been a significant need for doing so.

The socio-political background and stakes of ‘Saudizing’ the workforce in Saudi Arabia : the Nitaqat policy

Authors Françoise DE BEL-AIR
Description
The paper addresses the historical and institutional background of labour management policies in Saudi Arabia. It envisages it as a long-term, structural impediment to the successful and rapid implementation of Saudization (localisation) of the labour force in the Kingdom. The paper thus emphasises the socio-political stakes and challenges to localisation of the labour force and, more generally, economic and labour reform in the Gulf States. Since the onset of the Arab uprisings, however, unemployment among Saudis, and especially women, has become a burning political issue. Governmental actors had no choice but to attempt to regain control over the economy and the management of the labour market. In September 2011, in spite of a spurt in foreign labour recruitment since the mid-2000s, a voluntary policy called “Nitaqat” aiming to “Saudize” the Kingdom’s workforce was enacted. This paper reviews its characteristics and points to its all-encompassing design as it addresses the socio-political context of Saudization and therefore is more likely to have a lasting effect than previous workforce localisation initiatives.

Regional migration report : Russia and Central Asia

Authors Anna DI BARTOLOMEO, Shushanik MAKARYAN, Agnieszka WEINAR, ...
Description
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation has become one of the most important destinations for immigration in the world. It is also a very particular case of a destination country in which two types of flows have shaped the character of immigration. Massive waves of Russians returning to their ancestral (or actual) motherland from other republics dominated throughout the 1990s, diminishing in 2000s. At the same time, the growing Russian economy started to attract immigrant workers from other parts of the post-Soviet space, especially from less developed central Asian countries, namely Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Nowadays, they are the main working migrant group, whose presence is contested on cultural grounds. The Eurasian migration system is thus a central theme for migration research in the region. This report proposes a deep comparative analysis of the place of Russia and Kazakhstan (Russia’s emerging economic rival) in the Eurasian migration system. The analysis is accompanied by an analysis of data collection in Russia and the development of Russia’s migration policy.

Wie Zuwanderung die Loehne beeinflusst: Untersuchung laenderspezifischer Unterschiede

Principal investigator Gerald Willmann (Principal Investigator ), Olivier Gordart (Principal Investigator ), Léa Marchal (Principal Investigator ), Max Steinhardt (Principal Investigator )
Description
Frankreich und Deutschland sind bedeutende Einwanderungsländer. In 2010 machten im Ausland geborene Personen 7.2% bzw. 6.3% der jeweiligen Bevölkerung aus (Brücker et al 2013). Trotz unterschiedlicher wirtschaftlicher Situationen (insbesondere hinsichtlich Ungleichheit und Arbeitslosigkeit), hat der jüngste Anstieg von Asylbewerbern und illegaler Immigration in beiden Ländern eine lebhafte Debatte um eine Verschärfung der Immigrationspolitik ausgelöst. Die ökonomischen Auswirkungen der Zuwanderung, insbesondere für die einheimischen Arbeitskräfte, sind dabei zentrale Themen.In vier Arbeitsabschnitten (WPs) soll dieses Projekt der Wirkung von zugewanderten Arbeitskräften auf einheimische Beschäftigung und Löhne nachgehen. Wir erweitern die die bestehende Literatur, indem wir untersuchen, ob und warum sich die Wirkung der Zuwanderer zwischen verschiedenen Ländern unterscheidet. Wir werden insbesondere die Allokation von Aufgaben und Arbeitsplätzen (WP1) und das Ausmaß der Handelsverflechtung (WP2) betrachten, um Arbeitsmarkteffekte der Immigration aufzudecken. Wir wollen zudem die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Arbeitsmarkt­effekten und Immigrationspolitik untersuchen (WP3).WP1 wird sich auf die Nachfrageseite des Arbeitsmarktes konzentrieren. Wir werden untersuchen, wie die Zuwanderung die Allokation von Aufgaben und Arbeitsplätzen innerhalb von Firmen und über Firmen hinweg beeinflusst.WP2 wird zuerst den Folgen von länderspezifisch unterschiedlichen Handelsverflechtungen für die Arbeitsmarkteffekte von Immigration nachgehen. Desweiteren soll untersucht werden, wie das Ausmaß der Unternehmenskonzentration (in Abhängigkeit von der Offenheit des Handels) die Verbindung zwischen Immigration und einheimischen Löhnen beeinflusst.WP3 wird sowohl theoretisch wie empirisch die politischen Determinanten der Immigrationspolitik analysieren, über europäische Länder hinweg und im Hinblick auf verschiedene Arten von Immigration. Es soll zudem darum gehen, wie der Grad der Substituierbarkeit zwischen Zuwanderern und Einheimischen von den Determinanten der Einwanderungspolitik abhängt.WP4 dient der Kooperation. Das Team umfasst Forscher mit ausgeprägten Komplementaritäten, die für dieses Projekt an der Schnittstelle zwischen Migrationsökonomie, Außenhandelstheorie und politischer Ökonomie der Migration gebraucht werden. Die Ergebnisse sollen in gemeinsame Publikationen innerhalb des französischen (WP1, WP2) und des deutschen (WP3) Teams, sowie beider Teams (WP2) einfließen. Wir erwarten desweiteren einen Austausch hinsichtlich der Nutzung der französischen und deutschen Arbeitgeber-Arbeitnehmer-Statistiken.Das Projekt soll die öffentliche Debatte durch ein besseres Verständnis der ökonomischen Effekte der Zuwanderung in Europa bereichern. Die Projektbeteiligten werden ihre Ergebnisse intensiv in die Öffentlichkeit tragen. Die Endergebnisse sollen in hochrangigen Fachzeitschriften und die Politikempfehlungen in Politikjournalen und Blogs veröffentlicht werden.
