Strategies and Structures. A multi-disciplinary study of the preconditions for entrepreneurship among immigrants in Sweden.

Principal investigator Martin Klinthäll (REMESO Project Leader), Susanne Urban (Participants from REMESO), Zoran Slavnic (Participants from REMESO), Craig Mitchell (Participants not from REMESO), Tobias Schölin (Participants not from REMESO)
Description
The project analyses how changes in policies and regulations affect conditions and opportunities for small business development in different industries over time, and how self-employed persons act in response to changes in opportunity structures. We study strategies of growth and survival within specific industries and markets, but also transitions of self-employment across industries and types of markets. The project will contribute new knowledge through a systematic and coherent longitudinal and spatial investigation of the dynamics of self-employment among immigrants in Sweden. The project systematically applies and develops instruments from recent international research on ethnic minority businesses (EMB). Theory in the field is developed through the integration of entrepreneurship theory and new theoretical contributions from EMB research. Theoretical perspectives on strategies and self-employed as actors is combined with theory on opportunity structures (the framework of ?mixed embeddedness?). Methodologically, the approach implies coordinated analyses of different dimensions on different levels, using a combination of policy studies, case studies and quantitative analyses.

Migration, minorities and maternity services: an international collaboration across three contrasting countries (Study Group)

Principal investigator Sarah Maria Salway (Principal Investigator)
Description
The Study Group will examine how migration and consequent ethno-cultural diversity have been problematized and responded to within the health systems of Germany, the United Kingdom and Canada. The focus is on maternity services and reproductive outcomes. Preliminary work will establish a conceptual framework that has pertinence to the three countries of focus, a methodological approach with particular attention to achieving meaningful comparison and operational feasibility across settings, as well as an operational structure that enables both inter-disciplinary and cross-national collaboration and active involvement of policy-makers, practitioners and users/consumers.

Organizing integration

Principal investigator Andreas Diedrich (Project Leader), Maria-José Zapata-Campos (Participants )
Description
The starting point of this multi-disciplinary research programme is the vertiginous growth in international migration and the recent “refugee crisis” in Europe, as well as the ever-present questions of social and economic integration of recent refugees and other immigrants. The programme aims to examine the challenges and opportunities created by novel initiatives that aim to support labour market integration of refugees and other immigrants who have been granted residency in Sweden – including the problems of coordination and organisation between the plethora of initiatives. The research will be conducted within a practice-based approach to organising (Gherardi & Nicolini, 2002; Nicolini, 2012) and aims to produce novel knowledge to facilitate the establishment of more sustainable processes and practices for integrating refugees and other immigrants in the labour market.

Improving education for Rohingya refugees from Myanmar living in Bangladesh

Principal investigator Gudrun Østby (Principal Investigator), Kendra Dupuy (), Marte Nilsen ()
Description
Forced displacement represents a major barrier to achieving Sustainable Development Goal #4, ensuring inclusive and quality education for all. This project examines the role of quality education in mitigating the negative educational, socio-economic, and psycho-social effects of forced displacement, with a focus on the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh. The Rohingya refugee crisis is one of the worst forced displacement situations and the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world. Rohingya refugee children are also facing an education crisis: Access to education was restricted in Myanmar, while education programs are currently serving only few Rohingya refugee children living in camps. We therefore propose an inter-disciplinary, mixed methods project to improve knowledge about 1) whether and how education is contributing to mitigating the effects of forced displacement by comparing in-camp, out-of-camp, and host populations, and 2) how to improve the quality of education programs for conflict-affected populations. The project will generate evidence-based policy recommendations about how to improve the quality of education in situations of conflict and humanitarian crisis. We will do this by mapping the landscape of education programs for Rohingya refugees; conducting a survey with refugees of their education needs, preferences, and expectations; and collecting in-depth qualitative data. We will use innovative dissemination methods to communicate the project’s findings, including producing a short documentary film about the process of establishing education programs in the camps, the role of education in helping Rohingya refugees to cope with and overcome the effects of forced displacement, and the views of refugees on how education programs are addressing their needs, preferences, and expectations.

Plattformarbeit in Urbanen Räumen

Principal investigator Manuela Bojadzijev (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Wie digitale Plattformen zentrale Bereiche urbanen Lebens in sieben europäischen Städten verändern, darum geht es in diesem Projekt. PLUS – Platform Labour in Urban Spaces: Fairness, Welfare, Development untersucht die multiplen Auswirkungen auf Arbeit, Reproduktion und Alltagsleben in europäischen Einwanderungsgesellschaften. Vier digitale Plattformen, die wiederum stellvertretend für Kernbereiche urbaner Ökonomien stehen, stehen im Zentrum des Forschungsinteresses. Uber verändert aktuell die Taxi- und Mobilitätsdienste grundlegend; der Essenslieferant Deliveroo befindet sich mit anderen Plattformen in einem spektakulären Konkurrenzkampf im Bereich der Essenslieferung; die Plattform Helpling vermittelt digital in zehn Ländern Putzkräfte, und Airbnb ist die schon hinreichend bekannte Wohnvermittlungsplattform. PLUS untersucht diese Plattformen und ihre Auswirkungen auf das urbane Leben interdisziplinär und vergleichend in Barcelona, Berlin, Bologna, Lissabon, London, Paris und in Tallinn. Wir interessieren uns für neue Praktiken und Formen flexibler und digitalisierter Arbeit, für Fragen nach den kulturellen, ökonomischen, politischen und sozialen Auswirkungen digitaler Plattformen, etwa im Kontext von Arbeitsmärkten, Gentrifizierungsprozessen und Lebensstilen, sowie für neue Modelle sozialer und rechtlicher Absicherung und politischer Organisation flexibel Arbeitender, und überprüfen politische Regulationen und alternative Plattformmodelle (etwa Ansätze des Plattformkooperativismus). Koordiniert durch die Universität Bologna umfasst das Projekt zahlreiche wissenschaftliche wie auch verschiedenen Praxispartner – darunter die Plattform Fairbnb, die sich als faire und nachbarschaftsgestützte Alternative zu Airbnb versteht. Das Projektteam an der Leuphana Universität Lüneburg bestehend aus Manuela Bojadzijev, Moritz Altenried, Stefania Animento, verstärkt durch Roxana Clara Weger und Jude Macannuco, verantwortet den Forschungsbereich zur Auswirkung digitaler Technologien auf Arbeit und soziale Absicherung in der Plattformökonomie und führt die empirischen Forschungen in Berlin durch."

Integration and International Migration : Pathways and Integration Policies

Principal investigator Thomas Lacroix (Research Partner)
Description
The INTEGRIM research training programme aims to establish a multi-site network of early stage researchers (predominantly PhD students) at the eight partner institutions fostering a multidisciplinary research career on International Migration and Integration within the European context. The network will apply a qualification framework with a compatible set of qualifications/knowledge/skills across the national systems for graduates of the INTEGRIM programme. Besides, the INTEGRIM research training programme will address the integration challenges that migration flows pose to policy makers, civil society and industrial partners in Europe. The main features of the proposed research training programme can be described as follows: (1) provide high quality research training on integration policies and processes in the European Union and neighbouring countries. It aims to enhance the quality of the existing knowledge of scholars, policy makers, practitioners, economic actors and civil society dealing with integration. (2) contribute to the creation of an international inter-sectoral and multidisciplinary critical mass on the politics of integration and more specifically on cultural and identity management, citizenship and political participation, labour and social integration and urban integration, residential patterns and mobility. (3) enrich the political and social debate through a transnational multidisciplinary analysis on the causes and conditions leading to migrant integration and economic, social and territorial cohesion. The network aims to bring together key actors with proven experience and knowledge of integration policies and processes from academic, enterprise, civil society and public backgrounds. (4) provide EU policy makers and practitioners with qualitative and quantitative scientific tools to inform their decision making and implementation processes on the four indicated integration policy areas. The proposed programme aims to contribute to the EU’s integration agenda on the basis of the coherent approach to integration pursued at EU level and fostered by the European Commission.

Personal Aspirations and Processes of Adaptation: How the Legal framework Impacts on Migrants’ Agency

Description
This project examines how legal frameworks – Belgian and European - correlate with third country national migrants’ agency, namely how they impact migrants’ family and professional trajectories and to what extent they afford them the ‘capability’ to develop their lives according to their personal aspirations. It analyses the relationship between legal norms and migrants through both a top-down and a bottom-up approach: from the norms to the migrants and then from the migrants to norms with a view to proposing means to enhance migrants’ decisional autonomy. By conducting a comparative analysis of the opportunities and constraints offered by various legal statuses on migrant’ families, mobility rights, professional trajectories, and the strategies these actors develop to deal with the legal framework, this project will reveal the unequal constraints exerted by legal norms on individual choices and the subsisting margins of autonomy, depending on a series of factors including not only legal statuses, but also ethnicity, gender, level of education, and socio-economic status. The scientific aim is twofold: understand how legal frameworks shape migrants' professional, family and migratory trajectories and life projects; and analyse if, and which strategies migrants develop to bend the rules and circumvent obstacles, and/or use the opportunities offered by legal systems to fulfil their professional and family aspirations. This will lead us to address two questions that lie at the core of social sciences: the relationship between structure and agency, and social inequalities. The project also furthers our understanding of the inadequacy of normative constructions of 'the' family underlying migration policies, and the reality of migrants' family structures and dynamics. We will firmly ground our contribution to theoretical debates on the relation between structure and agency in the empirical observation and analysis of the lived experiences of migrants. Concrete scientific outputs include research publications in peer-reviewed journals and articles in collective volumes with the interim project findings, a legal definition of the notion of autonomy, and a final multi-disciplinary book.

Exit - Transit - Transformation

Principal investigator Ruud Koopmans (Principal Investigator), Herbert Brücker (Principal Investigator), Naika Foroutan (Principal Investigator), Andreas Pott (Principal Investigator), Helen Schwenken (Principal Investigator)
Description
"The ExiTT project (in its preparatory phase from January 2018 to December 2019) prepares a large-scale research project that processually traces, documents and analyses processes of migration from origin countries, from the starting point, over the route, until integration in the destination countries and their societies from social, economic, political and cultural aspects. At the same time, it will analyse the political, economic, societal, discursive and legal transformation of the sending, transit and receiving/destination countries as well as political, economic, societal, discursive and legal repercussions by, for example, transnational relationships, re-migration, circular migration or post-migration mobility. To grasp such complex processes, it employs a research approach that is interdisciplinary, multi-local and multi-method. The multidisciplinary research approach is intended to apply research perspectives from sociology, political sciences, psychology, geography, history, cultural sciences and economics in order to design questionnaires, to conceive the regional case studies and to carry out the data analyses. The main task of the project will be the collection and analysis of new data in multiple locations such as origin, transit, and receiving countries that will provide a unique basis to deliver evidence for the above sketched topics. The basic idea and method will follow a combination of the ethnosurvey model (Massey & Zenteno 2000) and regional case studies. On the basis of multiple methodological approaches such as surveys, fieldwork, discourse, media and policy analyses in origin, transit and immigration countries, the ExiTT project is intended to answer questions about the causes and motives of migration decisions, about the negotiations and conditions for successful integration and participation in transit and immigration countries, and about various aspects of social, political, economic and cultural transformations in all countries involved. The results of the data generated though this mixed methods approach is intended to be collated into one comprehensive data set that – based on the model of the Mexican Migration Project – will continue to grow cumulatively over time. In addition to surveys and (qualitative) interviews with individuals (migrants as well as non-migrants) expert interviews with representatives from state and private organisations as well as observations in the field will be conducted and innovative methods like experiments will be deployed. From the data set, there will derive a potential for research into the causes, conditions and negotiations of migration and migration routes as well as the changes in the so-called transit or host/receiving countries and their societies. At the same time, an interdependent approach will be chosen that includes in the analysis the effects of migration in the exit or origin countries. Insights into migration and integration processes from various actors and in multiple sub-systems can be expected on the basis of this data set. Labour market-specific and education-related aspects, cultural and social practices of integration, and obstacles and negative effects of disintegration could be evaluated according to target groups and, e.g., analysed in families and house-holds from the gender perspective or with regard to youths. In parallel, transformations in political structures, cultures or societies can be documented and the analysis of changes empirically grounded. The ExiTT project is a cooperation project of the DeZIM research community."

Klimawandel, Umweltveränderungen und Migration: Sozial-ökologische Bedingungen von Bevölkerungsbewegungen am Beispiel der Sahelländer Mali und Senegal

Principal investigator Martin Doevenspeck (Principal Investigator ), Diana Hummel (Principal Investigator ), Cyrus Samimi (Principal Investigator ), Wolfgang Lutz (Principal Investigator )
Description
Das interdisziplinäre Forschungsprojekt MICLE beschäftigt sich mit den Umweltwandel und Migration in Mali und Senegal. Politiker und Wissenschaftler bezeichnen den Klimawandel als eine der größten Bedrohungen für menschliche Entwicklung in Afrika und sagen massive Bevölkerungsbewegungen als Folge einer zunehmenden Zahl von Extremereignissen wie Dürren, von zunehmender Wasserknappheit, Abnahme der Nahrungsmittelproduktion und Verlust an Biodiversität voraus. Dabei ist das Konstrukt der „Umweltflucht“ aufgrund des ihm inhärenten Geodeterminismus, der konzeptionellen Unklarheiten und politischen Instrumentalisierungen höchst problematisch. Umweltveränderungen als Hauptursache für Migration zu identifizieren ist praktisch unmöglich. Daher beschäftigt sich das Forschungsprojekt mit den multiplen Ursachen von Migration im Sahel um die internen Logiken zu verstehen und Migrationsbewegungen theoretisch zu kontextualisieren.

Evaluation of migration mobility based on sociological research data in Ukraine

Authors Ekateryna IVASCHENKO-STADNIK
Description
Migration mobility: subject field, measurement instruments, application. In the absence of reliable instruments for control and accounting of irregular forms of interstate migration , including migration from Ukraine to the non-CIS countries , estimates of migration flows voiced by experts and broadcast by domestic mass media are contradictory . Hence there is a need to use interdisciplinary methods to monitor and forecast migration, including methods offered by sociology. It is important to agree upon the terms and categories to be used in research. It is also important to correctly interpret sociological data illustrating public mindset with regards to various aspects of migration.

Description
"UNTERSUCHUNGSGEGENSTAND Weibliche Flüchtlinge auf dem Weg nach Europa gelten als in besonderer Weise gefährdet, Opfer von Menschenhandel zum Zweck der sexuellen Ausbeutung (MHS) zu werden. MHS ist ein schwerwiegendes, weltweit verbreitetes Verbrechen, das die seelische und körperliche Integrität der Betroffenen nachhaltig beeinträchtigt. Auch die Ziel- und Transitländer Österreich und Deutschland sind davon betroffen. Die gezielte Ausnutzung einer finanziellen Zwangslage bzw. der Hilflosigkeit Betroffener sowie physische und psychische Gewalt bzw. Gewaltandrohungen durch die TäterInnen erschweren den Zugang zu den Opfern von MHS. Neben den undurchdringlichen Strukturen organisierter Kriminalität beeinflussen auch strukturelle Einschränkungen durch komplexe gesetzliche Regelungen die Handlungsmöglichkeiten Betroffener. Nicht selten scheinen auch die Zugänge professioneller AkteurInnen im Zusammenhang mit der Bekämpfung von MHS begrenzt. PROJEKTZIEL Die beschriebenen Hintergründe legen nahe, dass dem facettenreichen Phänomen MHS ausschließlich institutionsübergreifend und auf einer mehrperspektivischen Ebene begegnet werden kann, um nachhaltige Erfolge hinsichtlich der Vorbeugung und Bekämpfung zu erzielen. Übergreifendes Ziel des deutsch-österreichischen Verbundprojekts ist es deshalb, in einem mehrdimensional angelegten Untersuchungsdesign multidisziplinär und institutionsübergreifend fundierte universelle, selektive und indizierte Präventionsmöglichkeiten in Bezug auf Menschenhandel und Zwangsprostitution zu eruieren. Diese sollten neben der technischen auch einer soziologischen, juristischen, psychologischen, (sozial-)-pädagogischen und sozialräumlichen Perspektive gerecht werden. Die Projektziele werden in insgesamt sieben Arbeitspaketen bearbeitet: AP 1: Opfer-TäterInnen-Dynamiken Leitung: Donau-Universität Krems (DUK) ProjektpartnerIn: SOLWODI Deutschland e.V. (SD) Geschlossene Gewaltsysteme mit ihren desorganisierten Bindungs- und Vertrauensstrukturen erschweren den Zugang Betroffener zu Hilfsangeboten. Mit einer Analyse informeller und formeller Strukturen der Organisation von Menschenhandel insbesondere auf der Ebene der Opfer-TäterInnen-Dynamiken sollen diese Barrieren aufgezeigt werden. Hierfür werden Betroffenen- und ExpertInnenbefragungen durchgeführt und ausgewertet. AP 2: Organisationsstrukturen von TäterInnen Leitung: Kriminologisches Forschungsinstitut Niedersachsen (KFN) Über die Auswertung polizeilicher Ermittlungsakten sowie mithilfe von TäterInnen-, Freier- und ExpertInnenbefragungen sollen spezifische Organisationsstrukturen und Vorgehensweisen der TäterInnen im Bereich MHS herausgearbeitet werden. Auf dieser Basis werden Erkenntnisse für eine effektive Interventions- und Präventionsarbeit gewonnen. AP 3: Sicherheitsempfinden und Prävention Leitung: Universität Vechta (UV) ProjektpartnerIn: SOLWODI Deutschland e.V. (SD) Im Zentrum steht die Klärung des Opfer- und Kriminalitätsaufkommens sowie des Sicherheitsempfindens in themenrelevant ausgewählten Quartieren anhand von Hellfelddatenanalysen sowie einer Bevölkerungsbefragung. Zudem werden bestehende Präventions- und Interventionsangebote und -konzepte eruiert und ausgewertet. AP 4: Juristische Expertise Leitung: Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen (UT) ProjektpartnerIn: Research Institute AG & Co KG (RI) Ziel ist eine juristische Expertise, die Fragestellungen zur Rechtslage, Rechtsauslegung, zum Rechtsschutz und zur Umsetzung der Rechtsgrundlagen im Bereich Menschenhandel im internationalen Vergleich beantwortet. Mit Blick auf das in Arbeitspaket 5 zu entwickelnde technische Gerät werden auch rechtliche Aspekte geklärt. AP 5: Technisches Gerät Leitung: Fraunhofer Institut für Biomedizinische Technik (IBMT) ProjektpartnerInnen: CEMEC - Intelligente Mechanik GmbH (CEMEC,) AKAtech Produktions- und Handels GmbH (AKA), Universität des Saarlandes (US), Hope for Freedom e.V. (HFF) In diesem Arbeitspaket steht die Entwicklung und Testung eines technischen Geräts zur Aufdeckung und Bekämpfung illegalen Menschenhandels Minderjähriger im Vordergrund. Dieses Gerät soll mithilfe einer mobil nutzbaren nicht-invasiven Methode zur Bestimmung der Volljährigkeit beitragen. AP 6: Präventions- / Interventionskonzepte Leitung: Konsortialleitungen (UV und DUK) ProjektpartnerInnen: alle aktiven PartnerInnen Die technischen, soziologischen, juristischen, psychologischen, (sozial-)pädagogischen und sozialräumlichen Erkenntnisse aus den Arbeitspaketen 1 bis 5 werden unter der Leitung der Konsortialführungen zusammengeführt und hieraus ein umfassendes Präventions- und Interventionskonzept erstellt. AP 7: Projektkommunikation Leitung: Konsortialleitungen (UV und DUK) ProjektpartnerInnen: alle aktiven PartnerInnen Mit Arbeitspaket 7 werden die zentralen Projektinhalte und Zwischenergebnisse projektbegleitend und themensensibel in der wissenschaftlichen und nichtwissenschaftlichen Öffentlichkeit verbreitet. Zudem wird die interne Projektkommunikation gesteuert. Die Umsetzung des Forschungsvorhabens wird im Rahmen der Förderrichtlinie Zivile Sicherheit - Schutz vor organisierter Kriminalität auf deutscher Seite vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) und auf österreichischer Seite im Sicherheitsforschung -Förderprogramm KIRAS vom Bundesministerium für Verkehr, Innovation und Technologie (bmvit) gefördert."

Migracje piłkarzy na tle migracji pracowników w Unii Europejskiej na początku XXI wieku.

Principal investigator Marzena Józefczyk ()
Description
Przedmiotem badań są migracje pracownicze sportowców, pokazane na przykładzie zawodowych piłkarzy. Zjawisko to znajduje się na pograniczu badań nad migracjami oraz socjologii sportu. Już w 1987 roku Bourdieu opisał socjologię sportu jako "podwójnie dyskryminowaną" - z jednej strony znajduje się ona na marginesie głównego nurtu socjologii, z drugiej strony jest niedoceniana przez działaczy sportowych, którzy uważają, że osoby z zewnątrz (w tym przypadku socjologowie) nie są w stanie w pełni zrozumieć świata sportu. Maguire dodał jeszcze trzecią formę dyskryminacji tej nauki, która wynika z jej multidyscyplinarnego charakteru oraz relatywnie niewielu publikacji, będących obecnie jedynym miernikiem produktywności (wraz z nierozerwalnie związaną z nimi liczbą cytowań i przyznawaniem grantów). Biorąc to pod uwagę, łącznie z cytowanym wcześniej Dunningiem i Frickiem, badania nad migracjami zawodników są wciąż sporym wyzwaniem.

Textressourcen für die Migrations- und Integrationsforschung

Principal investigator Andreas Blätte (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Das Ziel des Projekts ist, für die Migrations- und Integrationsforschung relevante Textressourcen (Korpora, Diktionäre, Annotationen, Trainingsdaten) zu identifizieren, diese in nachhaltige Formate zu überführen und für die Forschung bereit zu stellen. Methodisch ist das Projekt im Bereich der eHumanities bzw. Computational Social Sciences angesiedelt. Es wird in einer Kooperation zwischen der Universität Duisburg-Essen (Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Integrations- und Migrationsforschung / InZentIM) und dem Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin (WZB) durchgeführt. „MigTex“ baut dabei auf der Infrastruktur, der Codebasis und den Zielsetzungen des PolMine-Projekts (www.polmine.de) auf. Als Strukturprojekt trägt „MigTex“ zur Forschungsdateninfrastruktur des Deutschen Zentrums für Migrations- und Integrationsforschung (DeZIM) bei. Ein zentrales Interesse des Projekts ist die nachhaltige Bereitstellung von Textressourcen für die Migrations- und Integrationsforschung. Diese Textressourcen in nachhaltige Formate (eXtended Markup Language / XML) zu überführen, dient der Reproduzierbarkeit und führt somit zu mehr Transparenz in der Forschung. Aufwändige Doppelarbeiten können vermieden werden. Die Entwicklung einschlägiger Korpora, Diktionäre und Annotationen eröffnet Potenziale für neue Forschungsansätze und Forschungsvorhaben der Migrations- und Integrationsforschung. Hierzu ist es notwendig, sowohl neue Verfahren bei der nachhaltigen Aufbereitung der Textressourcen zu entwickeln, als auch die ‚klassischen’ qualitativen und quantitativen Ansätze der Inhaltsanalyse um Verfahren der eHumanities bzw. Computational Social Sciences zu erweitern. Der Arbeitsplan des Projekts sieht vor, dass einschlägige Ressourcen identifiziert und Standardisierungen entwickelt werden. Zunächst sollen gemeinfreie Arbeitsmaterialien (Parlaments- und Regierungskommunikation) aufbereitet werden. Im Rahmen des Projekts besteht allerdings auch die Möglichkeit, lizenzrechtlich geschützte Materialien zu erschließen. Im Projekt wird dann die Verbesserung der Zugänglichkeit und die Dissemination der entwickelten Methoden und der aufbereiteten Daten im Vordergrund stehen. Hierzu ist die Bereitstellung einer Analyseumgebung (auf Basis des bereits vorliegenden R-Pakets ‚polmineR’, vgl. https://cran.r-project.org/package=polmineR) ebenso zentral wie die Erstellung von Tutorials und Workshops (November 2018 und September 2019), die der Vermittlung der bereitstehenden Daten und Methoden dienen sollen. Nach Abschluss des Projektes stehen die Daten wissenschaftlichen NutzerInnen in lizenzrechtlich geklärter Weise zur Verfügung. Eine Analyseumgebung kann genutzt werden, die quelloffen ist und durch adäquate Dokumentation, Tutorials und Schulungsmaterialen eine technisch niedrigschwellige Verwendung dieser Daten erlaubt. Diese Transparenz und Mechanismen des User-Feedbacks dienen der Qualitätssicherung des Projekts.

Migration for whose benefit? Pakistani and Indian migrant communities’ remittance sending behavior and integration in Finland and Sweden. (89 500 €)

Principal investigator Zain Ul Abdin ()
Description
Project description: The aim of this doctoral research is to explore contemporary migration and remittance sending behaviors and their impacts on socio-professional integration of migrants from Pakistan and India in Finland and Sweden. The research assumes that distinct groups of migrants carry dissimilar cultural obligations upon migration, which emphasizes the need to compare migrants from different places of origin. As for the integration process, it is argued that acquiring a job to earn and send money back home promotes initial integration but minimizes consumption and the search for support from various compatriots tends to weaken the integration process in the long run. Migrants pushed by stronger obligations to remit spend a fairly longer time doing odd jobs than those with mild compulsions. Not pushed to work longer hours in unskilled jobs, the latter can dedicate more time to finishing their University degrees, learning the language, and eventually turn out to become an entrepreneur or acquire a professional job. The empirical data collection entails participant observations and semi-structured interviews in Malmö and Stockholm in Sweden and Helsinki and Turku in Finland. The primary foci of this research are those migrants who entered on a student visa. This multidisciplinary research addresses an understudied aspect of migrant behaviour, both in Finland and in neighbouring Sweden, namely the relationship between remittance sending and migrant integration. The study asks, who really benefits from migration. Is it the migrant himself/herself or the relatives of the migrant back home who receive the bulk of remittances? The research fills theoretical and empirical gaps regarding different migrant groups' behaviour in remittance vs. integration.

Principal investigator Magnus Dahlstedt (REMESO Project Leader), Aleksandra Ålund (Participants from REMESO), Christophe Foultier (Participants from REMESO), Lisa Kings (Participants from REMESO), Nazem Tahvilzadeh (Participants not from REMESO), Vanja Lozic (Participants not from REMESO)
Description
The project aims at enhancing empirical knowledge and theoretical understanding of this complex research question, focusing on the potential of alternative strategies for social inclusion of migrant youth in multi-ethnic urban settings. We set out to examine different expressions of cooperation for social inclusion in multi-ethnic urban settings. The project studies the question of urban unrest from different empirical perspectives, ranging from institutional representatives to actors in civil society and young people themselves. Empirically, the project will scrutinize how structural change and institutional responses related to welfare reductions affects social exclusion/inclusion of migrant youth in marginalized neighborhoods through case studies in two Swedish urban settings, Stockholm and Malmö. The project is interdisciplinary and is carried out with by the use of qualitative methods such as interviews (individually as well as in groups) and document analysis.

Nouvelles perspectives sur les migrations dans et depuis la région de Kayes

Principal investigator Nehara Feldman (Coordinator), Stéphanie Lima (Investigator), Sandrine Mesplé-Somps (Investigator)
Description
L’objectif du projet NIMIK est d’identifier l’émergence de nouveaux phénomènes migratoires à partir d’enquêtes sur la région de Kayes. La mobilité vers d’autres pays d’Afrique et d’autres destinations, notamment l’Europe, depuis cette région a fait l’objet de nombreux travaux dont il s’agira de faire un bilan critique. Ces travaux permettent d’approcher les phénomènes migratoires avec une profondeur historique particulière, et on s’attachera à déceler à partir de ce terrain singulier les changements en cours. Sur une durée de deux ans, le projet réunit une équipe d’une dizaine de chercheuses et de chercheurs, économistes, statisticiens, géographes, sociologistes et anthropologues, basés en France et au Mali. La pluridisciplinarité permettra de réfléchir à l’articulation des motivations sociales, économiques, politiques et climatiques dans les projets de départ et, éventuellement, de retours. Le projet NIMIK est structuré autour de trois thèmes. Le premier coordonné par Sandrine Mesplé-Somps (IRD, UMR DIAL), a pour objet de dresser un bilan de la dynamique actuelle des migrations au Mali, notamment en matière de genre et d’étudier les aspirations nouvelles à migrer. Avec notamment l’appui de Björn Nilsson (économiste, post-doc), cet axe mobilisera des enquêtes statistiques existantes et mettra en place une enquête originale auprès de jeunes maliens sur leurs aspirations au départ. Le deuxième est coordonné par Nehara Feldman (anthropologue, Université de Picardie) associée à Aïssatou Mbodj-Pouye (anthropologue, CNRS IMAF, Paris et Point Sud, Bamako) et Joanne Le Bars (géographe, post-doc) ; il examinera les dynamiques familiales liées à la migration et s’intéressera à l’émergence possible de nouvelles configurations migratoires, notamment la migration autonome des femmes. Le troisième, coordonné par Stéphanie Lima (LMI Movida et Université de Toulouse) et auquel est associée Hawa Coulibaly (géographe, post-doc, LMI MACOTER et UMR CESSMA), étudie les interrelations entre les migrations internationales et la gouvernance locale dans la région de Kayes. Outre les trois post-doctorants cités, seront impliqués dans le projet un doctorant du LMI MACOTER, deux étudiants boursiers de Point Sud, Bamako, Mariam Sissoko et Mbaré Fofana et une étudiante en master de l’Université de Picardie, Nassima Guilal.

Religiöser Extremismus und Radikalisierung aus Migrations- und Integrationstheoretischer Perspektive

Principal investigator Andreas Zick (Principal Investigator), Ruud Koopmans (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Ziel des Kooperationsprojektes „RADIKAL“ ist das Verständnis des Zusammenhangs von Migration, Religion und Radikalisierung. Zentral ist dabei die Analyse der Beziehung zwischen Migrationserfahrungen, Akkulturationsprozessen, Diskriminierungswahrnehmungen und -erfahrungen und der Bildung von politischen wie religiösen Überzeugungen, vor allem extremistischer Einstellungen. Im Fokus des Projektes stehen muslimische junge Menschen, die sich radikalisieren bzw. radikalisiert haben. Bestehende Theorien und Daten werden zu Modellen zum kausalen Zusammenhang der Kernkonzepte entwickelt und anhand eines Mixed-Methods-Designs überprüft. Dadurch wird es möglich sein, empirisch fundiert Modelle zu identifizieren, die eine evidenzbasierte Grundlage für die Prävention und Intervention bieten. Die Kernfrage des Kooperationsprojektes „RADIKAL“ ist die Frage nach dem Zusammenhang von Migration, Religion und Radikalisierung. Die theoretische wie die empirische Analyse zielt dabei auf das Verständnis des Zusammenhangs von Migrationserfahrungen, Akkulturationsprozessen, Diskriminierungswahrnehmungen und -erfahrungen und der Bildung von politischen wie religiösen Überzeugungen, hier v.a. extremistischer Einstellungen. Migrationsprozesse werden dabei vor allem auch als Akkulturationsprozesse verstanden, in denen Menschen soziale, politische und religiöse Überzeugungen auf der Grundlage ihrer Erfahrungen während der Akkulturation entwickeln. Es wird angenommen, dass gerade hier extremistische, fundamentalistische und polarisierte (eben radikalisierte) Überzeugungen entstehen können. Auf der Grundlage bestehender Theorien und Daten entwickelt das Projekt zunächst theoretische Modelle zum kausalen Zusammenhang der Kernkonzepte. Diese werden dann anhand einer Kombination von quantitativen wie qualitativen Methoden empirisch untersucht. Dies ermöglicht es, mithilfe der Ergebnisse des Projekts empirisch fundierte Modelle zu identifizieren, die eine evidenzbasierte Grundlage für die Prävention und Intervention bieten. Im Fokus des Projektes stehen muslimische junge Menschen, die sich radikalisieren bzw. radikalisiert haben; sei es in besonders schwerer Weise (Terror) oder weniger schwer (kognitive wie emotionale Nähe zu extremistischen wie fundamentalistischen Gruppen oder Weltanschauungen). Die Aufarbeitung der Analyse soll zudem einen Vergleich mit anderen Phänomenbereichen ermöglichen. Das Projekt besteht aus zwei Phasen: In der ersten Phase wird unabhängig von späteren Einzelfallanalysen kompletter Biografien ein Kodierschema zu den zentralen Konzepten (Migration, Integration/Akkulturation, Diskriminierung, religiöse Bindung und Orientierung) erstellt, um vorhandene und neue Daten zu den Biografien von jungen Menschen zu integrieren. In der zweiten Phase sollen im Besonderen migrations- und integrationsbedingte Risikofaktoren mit Blick auf Radikalisierung und die Bindung an extreme Gruppen herausgearbeitet werden. Auf der Grundlage der Daten der ersten Phase werden dazu hoch radikalisierte Personen mit besonders fundamentalistischer Orientierung identifiziert (qualitative Fallrekonstruktion). Anhand dieser Daten wird eine quantitative Überprüfung der Bedeutung bestimmter Risiko- und Erklärungsfaktoren vorgenommen. Die Ergebnisse von Experteninterviews mit staatlichen und zivilgesellschaftlichen Stakeholdern aus den Bereichen Religion, Sicherheit, Jugendarbeit, Prävention und Deradikalisierung u.a. sollen die Evaluierung der Projekterkenntnisse erweitern und als Grundlage zur Entwicklung von gemeinsamen Strategien der sensiblen Prävention, wie auch neuer Wege der Jugendarbeit dienen."

People in Motion:Entangled Histories of Displacement across the Mediterranean (1492-1923) 

Principal investigator Kalliopi AMYGDALOU (PI)
Description
Cost Action 18140 People in Motion: Entangled Histories of Displacement across the Mediterranean, or PIMo, explores common forms of displacement and dispossession across the Mediterranean from the fifteenth century to the present. Charting similarities – and significant differences – in the experience and representation of human movement, our research seeks to understand the emotional drivers and significance of dislocation for individuals and communities during the period between the expulsion of Jews from Spain and the Lausanne Treaty. With a focus on people – and the ideas, objects, and writing that accompanied them – our goals include evaluating the ways and degree to which these historical events and experiences continue to shape contemporary representation of migration and displacement in the modern world, and to build a functional and highly-creative interdisciplinary network of collaborators from around the world who will continue this conversation after the life of the grant.

Turismens roll i multikulturella samhällen

Principal investigator Sayaka Osanami Törngren (Project Leader), Thomas Pederson (Participant), Caroline Adolfsson (Participant), Pieter Bevelander (Participant)
Description
Tourism and the tourism industry have been criticized for contributing to a uni-dimensional view of culture and people, which (re)produces stereotypic images, discredited histories and romantic fantasies. There is a risk that tourism reduces places to monocultures where the complexity that makes them interesting disappear. No modern society has only a culture, language or identity. Globalization, migration and other intercultural exchanges changes places. Inclusion and participation are increasingly highlighted in tourism and place branding literature. However, tourism and place branding have rarely been associated with concepts such as integration, migration and multiculturalism. TiM's objective is to explore the role of tourism in multicultural societies, in Sweden and beyond, as well as to act for the inclusion and representation of diversity in tourism development and place branding. TiMS’ originality lies in 1. A multidisciplinary and innovative approach to tourism studies, including design, social work, migration studies, marketing and interaction design, placing it in the forefront of technical and methodological development. 2. The ability to reach actual practical and societal change through collaboration between research and practice through action-oriented research. 3. Studies in Sweden and four non-European countries (Kenya, C hina, Japan and the US) broadens and deepens the understanding and conceptualisation of sustainable and inclusive forms of tourism and place branding.

Recruitment of IT-professionals from India in the ICT-sector: The Case of Sweden and Denmark

Principal investigator Kirsten Hviid (REMESO Project Leader)
Description
This research project addresses migration management, recruitment strategies and employment of international IT-professionals from India in the ICT-industry in Sweden and Denmark. IT-professionals have mainly been recruited from EU-countries through the network of EURES, but recently both Scandinavian countries have introduced recruitment measures to attract and facilitate migration of highly skilled employees, such as IT-professionals, from outside the EU. The Swedish migration management, introduced in 2008, is strictly demand driven whereas the Danish system, introduced in 2002, is both demand- and supply driven. By comparing the Swedish liberal migration management system and simple recruitment measures used by the Swedish employers with the ?tough? Danish migration management system and relatively complicated recruitment measures required for Danish employers, differences and similarities between the two systems can generate a better understanding of how the processes of migration management systems and recruitment strategies interact in the two labor markets. This project employs a multidisciplinary theoretical approach with a broad perspective on globalization, organizational management and the micro social processes involved in the recruitment practices and selection. The methodology applied is based on mixed methods such as quantitative data from national statistics and qualitative interviews with HR managers and leader from four companies in Sweden and Denmark.

The future of EU-Turkey relations: Mapping dynamics and testing scenarios

Principal investigator Angeliki Dimitriadi (PI)
Description
The EU and Turkey face mounting challenges both in relation to one another and internationally. The EU has recently been confronted with a series of crises, e.g. in the economic and migration dimensions. These developments as well as the Brexit-question are likely to make differentiation a growing phenomenon. On the other hand, Turkey faces polarisation between different political forces, the state and civil society. The neighbourhood is unravelling to the east and south and a power shift is under way at global level. This questions the regional roles of Turkey and the EU. Against this backdrop, FEUTURE’s research aims to: map the dynamics of EU-Turkey relations as to underlying narratives and thematic drivers; substantiate most likely future scenario(s) and assess its implications; draw policy recommendations. FEUTURE provides excellence and pursues an ambitious, inspiring and innovative programme in a three-phased structure of elaboration, exploration and extrapolation. It applies an inter-temporal, interdisciplinary and international approach by analysing drivers within six thematic dimensions (politics, security, economics, energy, migration, identity) and across four levels of analysis (EU, Turkey, neighbourhood, global). http://www.feuture.eu/

Nachwuchsgruppe ›Die wissenschaftliche Produktion von Wissen über Migration‹

Principal investigator Isabella Löhr (Principal Investigator), Christiane Reinecke (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Die Nachwuchsgruppe analysiert die Bedingungen und Folgen der wissenschaftlichen Produktion von Wissen über Migration. Im Zentrum der gemeinsamen Arbeit stehen die Praktiken der Produktion und Zirkulation von Wissen über die räumliche Bewegung von Menschen, die jeweils an der Schnittstelle von Wissenschaft und Politik, Verwaltung und Gesellschaft untersucht werden. Mit der Nachwuchsgruppe wollen wir zu einem vertieften Verständnis von gesellschaftlichen Selbstverständigungsprozessen und Praktiken im Umgang mit Migration und Differenz beitragen und reflexive Perspektiven für die historische, sozial- und kulturwissenschaftliche Migrationsforschung erarbeiten. Der oftmals aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen gespeisten Auseinandersetzung mit der räumlichen Bewegung von Menschen versuchen wir durch ein transdisziplinäres, dialogintensives und kooperatives Arbeiten gerecht zu werden. Konzeptionell beruht die Arbeit der Nachwuchsgruppe auf drei Säulen: Erstens begreifen wir die Produktion und Zirkulation von Migrations- und Mobilitätswissen als einen transnationalen, von Verflechtungen und Übersetzungen geprägten Prozess, der zwar in national verfasste Öffentlichkeiten und Wissenschaftslandschaften eingelassen ist, der wesentliche Impulse aber von transnational agierenden Akteuren und Institutionen erhält. Zweitens arbeiten wir mit einer historisch-kritischen Perspektive auf Ordnungskategorien, Begriffe und Daten, die den Umgang mit Migration und Mobilität prägen. Auf diese Weise können wir aktuellen Problematisierungen historische Tiefenschärfe verleihen, sie denaturalisieren und gesellschaftstheoretisch reflektieren. Drittens orientieren wir uns an einer praxeologischen Vorgehensweise. Dazu greifen wir Anregungen aus der neueren Wissens- und Wissenschaftsforschung auf und untersuchen die Produktion von Migrationswissen als einen situierten, in spezifische Praktiken, Netzwerke und Institutionen eingelassenen Prozess, der sich im Austausch mit anderen Feldern und außerwissenschaftlichen Akteuren vollzieht."

Mobilités ouest-africaines

Principal investigator Monique Bertrand (Principal Investigator)
Description
Le projet MOBOUA a rassemblé 16 chercheurs dans quatre pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest, dont 9 relevant des universités partenaires Abdou Moumouni de Niamey, du Mali et de Ouagadougou. Rappelant que la sous-région "retient mieux ses migrants qu'elle ne les exporte", il s'est démarqué de commandes de recherche portant sur les remises financières des "migrants" au Nord ; et sur la montée en force de tendances xénophobes dans les espaces politiques africains. L'approche retenue est celle de la mobilité dans ses différentes échéances et amplitudes (internationales, nationales, locales) et leur articulation spatio-temporelle dans une perspective analytique. L'argumentaire s'illustre en particulier sur trois types de mesures scientifique : 1. Les circulations internationales intra-africaines 2. Les prolongements intra-urbains, résidentiels et plus quotidiens, des mouvements vers les villes 3. Les liens sociétaux que les migrants entretiennent avec d'autres composantes, migrantes et non migrantes, du peuplement africain. Pour ce faire, le projet s'est donné pour objectif d'argumenter de l'intérieur la dynamique et la diversité d'un "Sud, aujourd'hui" ; d'analyser circulations et relocalisations en associant deux méthodes dans un dispositif de recherche pluridisciplinaire : le suivi biographique et pluri-générationnel des migrants selon leurs parcours respectifs ; l'observation de sites significatifs de l'accès des ruraux et des citadins aux ressources économiques et sociales locales. L'investissement méthodologique est donc un point fort de MOBOUA. Sont conjugués une approche "macro" de la migration internationale (mise à jour critique de diverses sources internationales) et de nombreuses collectes de première main : approche anthropologique, suivi territorial de migrants devenus citadins, protocole statistique d'enquêtes quantitatives. Quatre bases de "micro" données individuelles sont notamment en cours de traitement. Les résultats scientifiques obtenus répondent aux attentes initiales du projet sur les axes d'échanges retenus dans ses trois ateliers : - A chaque génération ses migrants : la recomposition des mobilités internes et internationales se cale sur les cycles de vie des candidats au départ, mais aussi sur les conjonctures historiques et la transition démographique marquant la sous-région à rythmes différenciés dans les pays. - Le passage théorique et méthodologique de "migrants à citadins" comble un déficit de connaissances localisées. L'articulation en ville de différentes mobilités participe pleinement de leurs recompositions familiales et politiques. - Au-delà des catégories d'installation et de mouvement, expériences collectives et projets migratoires plus individués se confrontent en réactivant de vieilles méridiennes de circulation entre Sahel et Côte Atlantique. L'impact des crises ivoiriennes compte dans les perspectives envisagées par MOBOUA tant pour l'avenir des migrations internationales ouest-africaines, que pour la contribution des apports démographiques externes aux dynamiques de métropolisation.

Patterns of Drug Use among (ethnic and cultural) Minorities

Principal investigator Tom Delcorte (Coordinartor), Dirk Jacobs (Partner), Ilse Derluyn (Partner), Wouter Vanderplasschen (Partner)
Description
Even though attitudes and practices of ethnic minority groups in Belgium have been extensively studied in the last decade, little is known about the prevalence and nature of their substance use (alcohol and illicit drugs). It therefore remains an under-researched topic, especially in Europe (Bashford et al., 2004). One of the main reasons lies in conceptual and methodological issues that complicate research on ethnicity. These issues, combined with the multidimensional nature of drug use, fear of accusations of racism and discrimination, and a general lack of minority ethnic health and social care workers and researchers, have created an environment where the theme of ethnicity, drug use and related service provision has been neglected. A necessary first step towards a holistic approach for these specific populations is to establish accurate information on the extent of drug use and its possible determinants. This project re-unites a multidisciplinary network (sociology, criminology, special education and social work) that has previously performed the Belspo-funded study on ‘Treatment trajectories of drug users from ethnic minorities’ (ZEMIV-project 2006-2007; Derluyn et al., 2008) - aims to help fill this gap. The general objectives of this research are: • to contribute to a better understanding of the prevalence and nature of drug use among ethnic and cultural minorities (ECM) in Belgium; • to unveil the determining factors behind substance use (illicit drugs and alcohol); • to increase ECM capacity in raising awareness about drug issues within the participants’ own communities; • and to assess the needs of ECM and articulate them with the actors responsible for planning services.

MIGLINK is a Swedish-Mexican-Turkish Research Links consortium specialised on migration and development. MIGLINK aims to examine the development of an incipient global governance framework for migration with a focus on the role of civil society. GFMD, initiated at the UN global dialogue High Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in 2006, is the most inclusive state-led forum between governments on developing policies for international migration. Since its inception, so-called "Civil Society Days" were organized as a side event to the GFMD meetings. The consortium follows preparation, agenda2012) setting, debates and outcomes of upcoming GFMD meetings among to contextualise them in historical and geographical perspective, aiming to identify the role of civil society in global policy making through the GFMD. This is matched by examination of the parallel development of a global movement of civil society in fora outside the formal framework of the GFMD and the formation of alternative agendas for global governance on migration. The consortium links interdisciplinary knowledge on the historical development of global governance on migration with a focus on conditions for sustainable development, poverty reduction, global labour and human rights. Dr. Stefan Rother, South Asian Studies at Freiburg University, with a long standing research trajectory in the subject area, joined the project in 2015.

Sustaining the welfare and working life model in a diversified society

Principal investigator Oddbjørn Raaum (Principal Investigator)
Description
The project outlines an ambitious research agenda, addressing challenges to sustaining the welfare and working life model in an era of increasing immigration and ethnic diversity. The project is comprehensive, covering the essential elements of sustaining the welfare state in the diversified society: The economic integration of immigrants; the impacts of exposure to ethnic diversity; and the role of ancestry culture for integration across generations. The project is innovative. We combine state-of-the art econometric methods and analyses of data from large administrative registers, field and laboratory experiments, and surveys. The register data cover longitudinal records for the full population over 25 years, including residence, education, work, and welfare, augmented with novel microdata on political participation. We study effects of exposure on trust in field experiments coordinated with the army and in analyses of election outcomes. We examine the roles of ancestry culture and gender norms in incentivized laboratory experiments, survey data, and epidemiological analyses that combine register data for the second generation and cultural indicators from the parental ancestry country. The project has strong policy relevance. It investigates directly the effects of programs targeted at newly arrived refugees and income requirements for family reunification on long-term labor market integration, as well as political participation in the immigrant population. For each program, we have identified explicit strategies for causal analysis. The project is multidisciplinary, bringing together a team of leading Norwegian researchers and distinguished international scholars from the fields of Economics, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology.

MASELTOV: Mobile Assistance for Social Inclusion and Empowerment of Immigrants with Persuasive Learning Technologies and Social Network Services

Description
MASELTOV recognises the major risks for social exclusion of immigrants from the European information society and identifies the huge potential of mobile services for promoting integration and cultural diversity in Europe. Mobile – everywhere/everytime - persuasive assistance is crucial for more efficient and sustainable support of immigrants. MASELTOV researches and develops novel ICT instruments in an interdisciplinary consortium with the key objective to facilitate and foster local community building, raising consciousness and knowledge for the bridging of cultural differences. MASELTOV realises this project goal via the development of innovative social computing services that motivate and support informal learning for the appropriation of highly relevant daily skills. A mobile assistant embeds these novel services that address activities towards the social inclusion of immigrants in a persuasive and most intuitive manner which is highlighted in MASELTOV with a representative application of most essential / beneficial information and learning services – such as ubiquitous language translation, navigation, administrative and emergency health services. MASELTOV researches for and develops enabling technologies with the industrial potential to easily exploit and scale up the prototypical user shares within the embedment of already existing successful services with worldwide user coverage. The project with its scientifically, technically and socially relevant results will enable a massive social impact on the future with respect to more cooperative – more successful - integration of millions of (im)migrants living together with hundreds of millions cohabitating European citizens.

Migration, Omvandling och Hållbarhet (MISTY)

Principal investigator Emily Boyd (), George Neville ()
Description
The objective of the MISTY project is to use theory and rigorous empirical research to expand knowledge of transformations to sustainability by incorporating migration dynamics. These specifically include: the impact of aggregate flows of people on sustainability; the individual life course dimensions of sustainability; and the governance of migration and sustainability. There is unprecedented concern over involuntary migration globally affecting insecurity and human rights. But both domestic and international migration has enormous transformative potential for individuals and societies. Transformation theories assume static populations and fail to recognize both positive and negative impacts of the movement of people. This gap limits explanations and intervention strategies for sustainability. This research project will develop a comprehensive migration-sustainability model, and develop insights on sustainability strategies at local, national and international scales. It will build global capacity of social science to explain and engage with migration dimensions of transformations to sustainability. The interdisciplinary social-science led consortium from Europe, North America, Asia and Africa builds on on-going methodological innovation and deep collaboration. The research design involves modeling, observation and action research at global scale and in research sites representing the full range of so-called migration transitions. The outcome will be co-designed advances in theory and salient and workable sustainability strategies reflecting real world migration dynamics. This research integrates comprehensive insights on migration into theories of transformation to sustainability.

EURA-NET

Description
The phenomena surrounding temporary transnational mobility of people are giving rise to an increasing political and academic debate throughout the world. This multidisciplinary EURA-NET project produces scientifically sound and innovative framings for investigating transformative characteristics and development impacts of temporary transnational migration and mobility in highly industrialised societies, transformation countries (emerging economies, transition countries, e.g.) and developing countries. Theoretical and empirical studies will be accomplished to attain an understanding of the transformative characteristics of temporary and circular migration, e.g. the mobility of seasonal workers, students, tourists and corporate workers in China, Finland, Germany, Hungary, India, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Thailand, Turkey and Ukraine, as well as in wider international and regional contexts. Research data will be gathered through interviews with individual migrants (and non-migrants) and national and international policy-makers. The findings in the European-Asian context will provide insights to be applied to other world regions. The final aim is to promote migration governance in a development perspective at all levels, from national to international. An associated set of questions concerns what challenges temporary transnational mobility poses to policy-making on European, national, international and global scales. By uncovering how politics structure people’s border-crossing movements in migrant-sending, migrant-receiving and transit countries and by shedding light on the international practices and lived experiences of individual migrants, the project will help European policy-makers to address challenges arising in the increasingly interconnected and demographically mobile world. The research outcomes will be communicated in the forms of policy briefs and scientific and policy reports to multi-level interest groups in European governance.

Was „macht“ Migration mit deutschem Verwaltungsrecht?

Principal investigator Larissa Vetters (Principal Investigator)
Description
... Eine rechtsethnologische Untersuchung des Aufeinandertreffens von migrantischen Lebensentwürfen und rechtlicher Systembildung in verwaltungsgerichtlichen Streitfällen "Hypothese ist, dass zwischen Migranten und staatlichen Akteuren eine Interaktionssituation entsteht, von der auch jenseits des Gesetzgebungsprozesses Impulse für eine Rechtsentwicklung ausgehen. Zentrale Fragen sind, wie Migranten als Akteure die Möglichkeiten verwaltungsgerichtlichen Rechtsschutzes erleben, wie Rechtsanwender in ihrem Arbeitsalltag Migrationsdynamiken und -folgen bearbeiten und welche Auswirkungen diese soziale Praxis auf das Verwaltungsrecht und die Rechtsstaatsvorstellungen der beteiligten Akteure hat. Dr. Vetters geht von der Hypothese aus, dass zwischen Migranten und staatlichen Akteuren eine Interaktionssituation entsteht, von der in der Rechtswirklichkeit auch jenseits des Gesetzgebungsprozesses intendierte und unintendierte Impulse für eine Rechtsentwicklung und eine Transformation von Rechtsstaatsvorstellungen ausgehen. In einer empirischen Untersuchung wird diese Interaktionsdynamik einschließlich der aus ihr resultierenden Prozesse der Rechtsfortbildung und -transformation systematisch erfasst und im Hinblick auf die Ausgestaltung von Rechtsstaatlichkeit unter Bedingungen soziokultureller Pluralisierung in Deutschland eingeordnet. Zunächst wird hierfür eine Datengrundlage in Form einer Falldatenbank mit mindestens 200 Fällen geschaffen, die bislang fehlt, da insbesondere die Justizstatistik keine Daten über den Migrationshintergrund enthält. Dazu werden zunächst explorative Interviews mit Migranten geführt, um so Rechtsgebiete zu identifizieren, die – neben den klassischen Gebieten wie dem Ausländer- und Asylrecht – für die migrantische Biographie von besonderer Relevanz sind bzw. in denen der Migrationshintergrund eine Rolle spielt. Für diese Referenzgebiete sollen dann weitere Daten durch teilnehmende Beobachtung, Interviews und Analyse schriftlicher Quellen in den Akteursfeldern „Migranten“, „Anwalt/Rechtsberatungsorganisation“, „Verwaltungsgericht“ und „Behörden“ erhoben werden. Aus dieser Falldatenbank sollen dann solche Fälle ausgewählt werden, in denen sich unterschiedliche Aspekte der Rechtsentwicklung und Transformationen von Rechtsstaatsvorstellungen andeuten. Auf dieser Grundlage ist geplant, 12 bis 16 detaillierte Einzelfallstudien zu bilden, anhand derer unterschiedliche Aspekte der Rechtsentwicklung und Transformation von Rechtsstaatsvorstellungen dokumentiert und analysiert werden können. Anhand verschiedener Teilfragen werden dabei die beiden großen Teilbereiche untersucht, welche Transformationen der Ordnungsidee der Rechtsstaatlichkeit in der Rechtswirklichkeit als Ergebnis von Interaktionen zwischen den am verwaltungsgerichtlichen Verfahren beteiligten Akteuren zu beobachten sind und inwiefern transformierte Rechtsstaatsvorstellungen der Akteure auf die Rechtsanwendung und -entwicklung zurückwirken."

Virtual asylum – Hiding Refugees from the all-seeing Eye of Europe

Principal investigator Veronika Nagy (Principal Investigator)
Description
" As an interdisciplinary, multi/sited analysis of refugee surveillance, this research addresses geopolitical incentives in the EU and how surveillance subjects as forced migrants from conflict countries use virtual coping strategies to prevent legal expulsion. The central research question is: How the interplay between digitized bureaucracies of migration control and the coping strategies of refugees from Islamic states shapes the dynamics of online mobility control? This study aims to provide empirical data on the mechanisms of surveillance strategies that promote efficiency and objectivity and how service dependent migrants adapt their coping strategies according to the constantly changing risk profiles of screening instruments as the tools of social sorting. Virtual control measures are not only reflecting the values and categories of the host society, but also how individual parameters are translated into risk categories. Unlike studies defining transnational mobility in terms of migration categories, this research is embedded in critical security theories to reveal the dynamics and constantly shifting nature of population flows and explore how stigmatized refugees adapt to rapidly changing circumstances by inventive virtual data sharing methods in the bureaucratic labyrinth of host societies. This project challenges the underlying assumptions behind this efficiency oriented governance technologies and by selected empirical data it provides a critical analysis on the limitations of surveillance and control practices and its implications on institutional distrust.

Regulation for artificial intelligence and robotics in transportation, logistics and supply chain management

Authors Matthias FINGER, Irina LAPENKOVA, David KUPFER, ...
Description
Under the terms of Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and Physical Internet as well as several others, many automatization and digitalization trends are on the move for the transportation, logistics and supply chain sector. Many technology aspects are driving these developments, in line with economic aspects. But increasingly also questions of human perception, motivation and safety are entering the discussion, emerging as a crucial topical area for overall economic impact and success. Regulation for technology developments in artificial intelligence and robotics are commonly seen as one of the important yet structurally neglected fields regarding the human perspective on increasing automatization. This was highlighted in 2017 by the European Parliament report and a public consultation, indicating that a vast majority of citizens in Europe is regarding those developments as positive innovation fields but where further safeguards and regulations are needed, see the EP Resolution on Civil Law Rules on Robotics, 2015/2103(INL). This issue is connected to an innovation workshop that took place on February 26 2018 at the Florence School of Regulation and directed at discussing the state of the art within the field of transportation, logistics and supply chain management. Furthermore, an evaluation regarding possible actions like regulation, agency- or industry-based approaches for establishing safeguards towards effective but risk-mitigating settings for this sector is aimed for. Initial contributions collected here are directed at providing an interdisciplinary overview regarding the perspectives of industry and logistics actors, researchers in the economic, computer sciences, law and sociology domains as well as other interested parties from the field of political actors and associations. This shall enable the start of an open discussion what sorts of regulation are necessary in order to secure human trust and motivation in AI and robotics developments without placing too much of a burden to the economic development in the transportation, logistics and supply chain sector.
