PERFORMIGRATIONS - People Are the Territory

Description
The international cultural project PERFORMIGRATIONS, supported by the European Union, explores the intersection of public cultural performance, collaborative art-making, and academic research on mobilities. It proposes a new understanding of ‘territories’, one that emphasizes the performative practices of the people that move toward, within, and through them. From April 2014 to March 2016 PERFORMIGRATIONS will organize eight major cultural events across Europe and Canada, producing eight collaborative art-exhibitions involving a variety of partners and audiences. A range of art forms and digital media platforms will delineate a new, mobile territory that is formed around stories, creativity, and shared cultural experience.

La dimension sociopolitique actuelle de la migration en Tunisie

Authors Abderrazak BEL HAJ ZEKRI
Description
Avant la révolution tunisienne de janvier 2011, les deux principaux axes de la politique migratoire, dans le cadre le Plan économique et social 2010-2014, étaient les suiavnts : la promotion de la migration légale à travers la signature d’accords avec des pays européens et non européens (Canada, Australie, etc.) ; et le renforcement des liens avec les émigrés tunisiens afin d’encourager leur participation au développement local. Après la chute de l’ancien régime, le gouvernement de transition a fait face à deux évènements importants, en relation avec les migrations : la recrudescence de l’émigration clandestine vers l’Italie et les retours massifs des Tunisiens de Libye. Par ailleurs, les associations d’émigrés tunisiens demandent à participer à la redéfinition de la politique migratoire. Abstract Until the Tunisian revolution of January 2011, the two main axes of the Tunisian migration policy, in the frame the Economic and Social Plan 2010-2014, were the followings : promoting legal migration through agreements with European and non European countries (Canada, Australia, etc.) ; and strengthen links with the Tunisian migrants abroad in order to support their participation in local development. After the fall of the ancient regime, the transition government faced two important events, in relation with migration : the upsurge of irregular migration to Italy and the massive return of Tunisian migrants from Libya. Moreover, the associations of Tunisians migrants demand to participate in the redefinition of migration policy.

Indian Human Resources Mobility: Brain drain versus brain gain

Authors Natalia BUGA, Jean-Baptiste MEYER
Description
India is a major source of migrants, especially of highly-skilled and well-trained workers. This paper attempts to show that even with a high number of Indian talents abroad, India – as well as destination countries – takes advantage of the resources generated by this population. Traditionally the flows of Indian professionals have been directed towards the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and other similar destinations. Recently, however, Western European countries are being selected as migration options. In this paper, the growing diversification of receiving countries is explained as a consequence of European immigration policies focusing on highly-skilled migrants, demographic trends which raise several questions related to labour shortages and, finally, the effects of the global economic crisis on mobility. The migration of highly-skilled Indians is analyzed and put in the context of globalization and the intensification of the knowledge-based economy. The paper shows that what has happened in India might stand as a win-win scenario with wider application where a brain drain may be converted into a brain gain.

Timmer and Williamson's index

Description
The authors analyse the development of migration policies. They construct an index of immigration policy to assess changes of policy over time for 1860-1930. The focus on five countries of immigration-Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, and the United States. Based on policy change (changes in the index were introduced only when policy changed), the index ranges over a scale of +5 to -5. A positive score denotes a pro-immigration policy A negative score denotes anti-immigration policy, A zero denotes policy neutrality, or a neutral outcome between conflicting pro- and anti-immigration policies.

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.

Description
This study group is part of an international research network consisting of researchers from sociology, political science, social and economic history and economics. Their work will contribute to the international social science literature on contemporary issues of migrant ethnicity around the world. Based on theoretical approaches from different disciplines and on micro data sets for Australia, Canada, Denmark and Germany interethnic marriage, citizenship and ethnic entrepreneurship will be studied and compared with earnings outcomes. From insights into the effects of ethnicity on the economic performance of individuals, ethnic clusters and the respective countries lessons will be drawn for migration policies and integration.

Existential mobilities: Politics of belonging among young people from conflict generated diasporas in Finland and Canada

Description
Project description: What happens when young people originating from conflict zones grow up in a different country? To what extent do they have a tendency to live with people coming from the same area? Does it entail a danger of propagating conflict to their host society? How could policy makers better evaluate this risk and respond adequately? This project proposes to answer these questions by studying the habits and world views of young people originating from war-torn countries but living in Finland and Canada, two countries having very different immigration histories and thus offering a good view on how immigrant communities or diasporas actually work, how they are created or sustained. Focusing on youth’s ways of seeing their own identity and their relations to their surroundings, the research intends to gain novel information valuable to policy makers and associative actors alike to face the challenge of multiculturalism. / Hankkeen julkinen kuvaus: Mitä tapahtuu, kun konfliktialueelta kotoisin olevat nuoret kasvavat eri maassa? Missä määrin nämä nuoret kiinnittyvät samalta alueelta kotoisin olevien ihmisiin? Voiko tästä seurata konflikteja vastaanottavassa yhteiskunnassa? Kuinka poliittiset toimijat voisivat arvioida konfliktin riskit ja vastata niihin riittävällä valmiudella? Tässä projektissa pyritään vastaamaan edellä esitettyihin kysymyksiin tutkimalla sodan repimiltä alueilta kotoisin olevien nuorten tapoja ja maailmankuvia Suomessa ja Kanadassa. Suomen ja Kanadan maahanmuuton historiallinen tausta poikkeaa toisistaan monella tapaa. Niiden vertaileminen tarjoaa erinomaisen lähtökohdan maahanmuuttajayhteisöjen ja diasporien muodostumisen ja ylläpitämisen tutkimiseen. Keskittymällä nuorten omaan tapaan hahmottaa identiteettiään ja suhteitaan ympäristöönsä, tutkimus pyrkii kokoamaan uudenlaista tietoa päättäjille ja järjestökentän toimijoille, jotta ne pystyisivät vastaamaan paremmin monikulttuurisuuden haasteisiin.

Mayda’s index

Description
Mayda’s index addresses migration policies in 14 OECD countries (Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Luxembourg, Norway, Netherlands, Sweden, Swizerland, United Kingdom, United States) between 1980 and 1995. Rather than addressing the overall policy situation for each year, the index focuses on changes in destination countries’ migration policies. The index increases by one if in that year the destination country’s immigration policy became less restrictive, decreases by one if it became more restrictive, and zero if there was no change Based on paper documents, the authors addressed the main characteristics of the migration policies of the destination countries in the sample and the timing (after 1980) of changes in their legislations. A dataset of destination countries’ migration policy changes, between 1980 and 1995, was constructed on the basis of the information in this appendix and used in the empirical analysis

Labour Migration Policy Index (LMPI)

Description
The Labour Migration Policy Index (LMPI) aims to assess on a national level the mechanisms which allow employers to meet their labour needs, and which provide favourable conditions for migrant workers. The LMPI focuses on assessing the formal rules and regulations of labour migration programmes, as opposed to actual policy implementation and migration outcomes, which are more difficult to evaluate. The LMPI considers two fields of labour migration policy -- Administration and Entry Mechanisms, and Migrant Worker Entitlements. Each of these two fields is divided into two ‘macro indicators’, for example, ‘Administrative mechanisms’ and ‘Entry mechanisms’. The LMPI only assesses migration programmes in a limited number of countries. In order to ensure some geographical balance, research has been conducted on the following thirteen countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Around the World, More Say Immigrants Are a Strength Than a Burden.

Description
Majorities of publics in top migrant destination countries say immigrants strengthen their countries, according to a 2018 Pew Research Center survey of 18 countries that host half of the world’s migrants. In 10 of the countries surveyed, majorities view immigrants as a strength rather than a burden. Among them are some of the largest migrant receiving countries in the world: the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Canada and Australia (each hosting more than 7 million immigrants in 2017). By contrast, majorities in five countries surveyed – Hungary, Greece, South Africa, Russia and Israel – see immigrants as a burden to their countries. With the exception of Russia, these countries each have fewer than 5 million immigrants. Meanwhile, public opinion on the impact of immigrants is divided in the Netherlands. In Italy and Poland, more say immigrants are a burden, while substantial shares in these countries do not lean one way or the other (31% and 20% respectively).

Emigration and diaspora policies in Belarus

Authors Andrei YELISEYEU
Description
In the first half of the 1990s, Belarus saw large migration flows, which since then have become considerably more moderate. The main destination countries for Belarusian emigrants are Russia, Poland, Germany, the US, and Canada. Over the last decade, temporary labour migration of Belarusians to the European Union has remained rather limited. At the same time labour migration flows of Belarusians towards Russia have increased. Belarus is a highly centralized state with regional authorities playing a marginal role in elaborating state policies, including in emigration matters. In order to curb emigration, Belarus authorities have resorted to the adoption of laws that discourage mobility. Taking into account growing labour shortages, the state policy to attract immigrants has been largely ineffective. At the same time, by September 2014 Belarus had reportedly hosted more than 25,000 Ukrainian migrants as a result of the military conflict in the Donbass region. Diaspora policy in Belarus is largely incoherent and selective. The long-awaited diaspora law is set to be adopted soon, but it fails to take into account the aspirations of diaspora members.

Index of controlled/competitive skilled immigrant workers programmes (Lowell)

Description
The Index addresses the admission programmes/policies for temporary and permanent high-skilled workers in 2001. The author presents two sub-indexes and one index: index of policies for temporary high-skilled workers and index for permanent high-skilled workers, and combined index of skilled immigrant competitiveness. Twelve countries are chosen, including the traditional countries of immigration (Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States), the major European receiving countries (France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, and United Kingdom), South Africa and Japan. A list of comparative criteria is created for admission policies: Hard numerical caps; Strict labour market test; Extensive labour protections; Enforcement mechanisms; Limited employer portability; Restriction on dependents / working spouse; Limited permanency rights. A four point scale is used with a “4” being highly controlled and a “1” being highly competitive; and there are intermediate rankings of minimally (2 points) and moderately (3 points) controlled. The rankings are based on the addition of all points for each of the elements just described above, but converted into an index with the most “controlled” country given a value of 100.

The Voices of British Child Migrants: Ein neuer Zugang zur Analyse der Child Migration Schemes des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts

Principal investigator Roland Wenzlhuemer (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das Projekt "The Voices of British Child Migrants: Ein neuer Zugang zur Analyse der Child Migration Schemes des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts" knüpft an eine zentrale Frage der Subaltern Studies und der neueren Globalgeschichte an und überträgt diese auf das historische Studium einer in diesem Zusammenhang bislang kaum in den Blick genommenen Akteursgruppe – Kinder. Am Beispiel der britischen child migration schemes nach Australien und Kanada soll der Frage nach den Stimmen marginalisierter Akteure auf zwei Ebenen nachgegangen werden: (1) Die Stimmen der Kinder sollen unter kritischer Reflexion der praktischen und methodischen Beschränkungen hörbar gemacht werden. (2) Die Rolle der Stimmen von Kindern in der Geschichte der child migrants selbst soll analysiert werden. Gemeinsames Erkenntnisinteresse ist die Rolle der Stimmen von Kindern in der Geschichte und ihrer gesellschaftlichen wie wissenschaftlichen Aufarbeitung. Der Untersuchungszeitraum reicht von den child migration schemes des späten 19. Jahrhunderts bis zu ihrem Ende in den 1960er Jahren. Die Untersu-chung soll zudem einen Ausblick auf die wissenschaftliche und politische Aufarbeitung seit den 1980er Jahren werfen. Das Projekt wird erstmals theoretische und methodische Stränge der Subaltern Studies und der neueren Globalgeschichte sowie der Childhood Studies am Forschungsgegenstand der child migration schemes zusammenführen. Neben einem neuen Zugang zu Quellen aus privaten und staatlichen Archiven in Großbritannien, Australien und Kanada soll die in der bisherigen Forschung verwendete Quellenbasis erweitert werden.Das Projekt zielt auf (1) neue Erkenntnisse über die child migration schemes, indem es die Stimmen der Kinder herausarbeitet und diese in ihrem Eigenwert erkennt, auf (2) einen Beitrag im Bereich der Childhood Studies, wenn es nach der Rolle der Stimmen von Kindern in der bzw. einer Geschichte von Kindern und Kindheit fragt, und schließlich zielt es auf (3) einen Beitrag zur theoretisch-methodischen Diskussion über die Repräsentation und das „Spre-chen“ bzw. „Gehört-Werden“ marginalisierter Akteure in Geschichte und Geschichtsschreibung.Bisherige Analysen von Quellen und Forschungsliteratur haben zu ersten Arbeitshypothesen geführt, die im weiteren Projektverlauf zu untersuchen sind. Darauf basierend ist insbesondere die Kindern im historischen Verlauf zugeschriebene Autorität, über ihre eigene Situation zu urteilen und zu entscheiden, differenzierter zu betrachten. Das in der Forschung verbreitete Bild einer weitestgehend linear verlaufenden Entwicklung von der Betonung der Schutz- zur Betonung der Partizipationsrechte von Kindern seit dem 19. Jahrhundert gilt es zu überdenken.

Ökonomische Integration der qualifizierten Migranten in vier Ländern

Principal investigator Irena Kogan (Principal Investigator), Mosche Semyonov (Principal Investigator), Yitchak Haberfeldt (Principal Investigator), Karin Amit (Principal Investigator), John Logan (Principal Investigator), Don Devoretz (Principal Investigator), William Bridges (Principal Investigator), Rebeca Raijman (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Das Hauptziel des Projektes besteht darin, die wirtschaftliche Integration von hoch gebildeten Immigranten aus der ehemaligen Sowjetunion in vier Zielländern zu vergleichen: USA, Kanada, Deutschland und Israel. Diese vier Länder stellten die hauptsächlichen Zielländer der Immigranten aus der ehem. Sowjetunion seit ihrem Niedergang 1989 dar. Jedes Aufnahmeland repräsentiert ein unterschiedliches Immigrationsregime, das sich sowohl in der Auswahl der Zuwanderer ins Einreiseland, als auch in der Bereitstellung der Art und Höhe der Hilfe und Unterstützung der Immigranten unterscheidet. Der Fokus der Integration der Immigranten aus einem Herkunftsland in verschiedenen Zielländern bieten uns die einmalige Gelegenheit die Auswirkungen der Immigrationspolitik und den Aufnahmekontext auf die ökonomische Integration der hoch gebildeten Immigranten zu untersuchen. Die geplante Untersuchung wird Folgendes erforschen: a) wie und warum hoch gebildete Immigranten ihr Zielland auswählen; b) die Konsequenzen der Selbstauswahl der Immigranten für ihren Erfolg auf dem Arbeitsmarkt und c) die Rolle des Aufnahmekontextes jedes Landes (Sozialpolitik und Arbeitsmarkteigenschaften) in Bezug auf die ökonomische Assimilation von hoch gebildeten Immigranten. Frau Kogan führt das Projekt an der Universität Bamberg weiter."
