Integration policies : country report for Croatia

Authors Simona KUTI
Description
The report provides a description of the main policy documents, initiatives and actors dealing with immigrant integration in Croatia. After introductory remarks concerning the context and recent migration flows to Croatia – which are composed mainly of citizens from the countries of former Yugoslavia – the report identifies main target groups and the focus of integration measures, as well as the main policy tools implemented thus far. The third section focuses on forms of engagement by civil society organisations concerning integration – providing services and various forms of assistance, primarily to asylum seekers, refugees and persons under subsidiary protection. Given that the main policy measures are in the early stages of development or planned for upcoming periods, it is premature to fully assess their implementation. However, since most of the current measures target asylum seekers, asylum grantees and subsidiary protection beneficiaries it will be necessary to develop new integration instruments or extend the applicability of the existing ones to different categories of immigrants, to correspond to the envisaged future role of Croatia as an immigration country.

Forced Displacement and Refugee-Host Community Solidarity

Principal investigator Ulrike Kluge (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Angesichts der vielfältigen Herausforderungen, die sich aus dem jüngsten Fluchtmigration nach Europa ergeben haben, sind evidenzbasierte Lösungen und Strategien zur Erleichterung eines erfolgreichen Integrationsprozesses dringlicher denn je. Wir verstehen Integration als einen dynamischen wechselseitigen Prozess, der sich nicht ausschließlich auf Flüchtlinge beschränkt, sondern die Aufnahmegesellschaften aktiv miteinbezieht. FOCUS verfolgt das Ziel, die Beziehungen zwischen Geflüchteten und Aufnahmegesellschaften und das Verständnis füreinander zu vertiefen. Der Schwerpunkt wird dabei auf die psychosozialen und sozioökonomischen Dimensionen dieser Beziehungen gelegt. Durch die Verbindung der sozioökonomischen und sozialpsychologischen Forschung und die Schaffung von Synergien zwischen beiden Zugängen im Bereich erzwungener Migration versucht FOCUS, umfassende Indikatoren zu entwickeln, die ein differenzierteres Verständnis von Integration widerspiegeln. Um dieses Bestreben zu verfolgen, werden Feldforschungen mit Geflüchteten aus Syrien und Teilnehmer*innen der Aufnahmegesellschaften in vier Ländern durchgeführt (Deutschland, Jordanien, Kroatien und Schweden). Die Standorte wurden sorgfältig ausgewählt um sicherzustellen, dass Erkenntnisse aus Ländern mit diversen Erfahrungen im Bereich Fluchtmigration und lokaler Integration gewonnen werden. Die Feldforschungen umfassen sowohl quantitative als auch qualitative Methoden, die erforderlich sind, um ein tieferes Verständnis der Hindernisse, Möglichkeiten und Lösungen für die Integration aus der Perspektive von Geflüchteten und Aufnahmegesellschaften zu gewinnen und somit stärkere, wissenschaftlich basierte Nachweise zu den Auswirkungen von Instrumenten/ Programmen zur Förderung der Integration zu entwickeln. FOCUS ist ein EU-Horizon 2020-Projekt, das im Januar 2019 seine Arbeit aufnahm und von acht Partnerländern (Belgien, Dänemark, Deutschland, Frankreich, Irland, Jordanien, Kroatien, Schweden) implementiert wird. In Berlin wird das Projekt in Kooperation zwischen der Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie der Charité Campus Mitte und dem Berliner Institut für empirische Integrations- und Migrationsforschung der Humboldt Universität umgesetzt."

Ablehnungskulturen in Europa

Principal investigator Manuela Bojadzijev (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Nationalismus und Rechtspopulismus entwickeln sich zu einem immer größer werdenden Problem für die freiheitliche demokratische Grundordnung in Europa. Sie führen zu sozialer Polarisierung sowie Radikalisierung und verändern das alltägliche Leben entscheidend. Die ""Kulturen der Ablehnung"" gegenüber Immigration, politischen Eliten, Institutionen der Zivilgesellschaft und der Medien, europäischer Integration u. ä. gehen laut der Arbeitshypothese der Forschungsprojektgruppe aus als negativ erlebten Veränderungen und Krisen hervor. Daher steht im Fokus ihrer Untersuchung unter anderem, in welchen On- und Offline-Umgebungen sich solche Gruppen bewegen und verbreiten und wie sie sich an unterschiedlichen Orten zusammensetzen. Für einen transnationalen Überblick über das Phänomen arbeiten Forscherinnen und Forscher aus Österreich, Kroatien, Deutschland, Serbien und Schweden zusammen. Das Projekt wird von der Volkswagen-Stiftung finanziert und das Team besteht aus Manuela Bojadžijev (Leuphana-Universität Lüneburg), Dr. Irena Fiket (University of Belgrade / Serbien), Prof. Dr. Birgit Sauer (Universität Wien / Österreich), Dr. Sanja Bojanic (University of Rijeka / Kroatien) and Prof. Dr. Stefan Jonsson (Linköping University / Schweden)."

Bayern - Kroatien transnational: Kroatische Migrantennetzwerke in lebensgeschichtlicher Perspektive (1960er Jahre - 2009)

Principal investigator Ulf Brunnbauer (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Das Projekt ""Bayern-Kroatien transnational"" untersucht grenzüberschreitende/transnationale Netzwerke in lebensgeschichtlicher Perspektive, die ArbeitsmigrantInnen und ihre Nachkommen zwischen Bayern und ihrem Herkunftsland Kroatien geknüpft haben. An Fallbeispielen wird unter Anwendung biographischer Interviews und intergenerationeller Familiengespräche untersucht, welche transnationalen Verbindungen die ArbeitsmigrantInnen und die Zweite Generation in Bayern entwickelt und wie sich diese im Lebenszyklus und mit dem Generationswechsel verändert haben. Welche Erwartungshaltungen und Zugangsmöglichkeiten entstehen zu materiellen, symbolischen und sozialen Ressourcen aus solchen transnationalen Praktiken? Die Dynamik der transnationalen Verbindungen und Praktiken wird vor dem Hintergrund der internationalen, nationalen und regionalen Migrationssysteme untersucht, in denen sich der Prozess der Arbeitsmigration aus Kroatien nach Bayern vollzogen hat. Von besonderer Bedeutung ist dabei auch die Untersuchung der Auswirkungen der deutschen und jugoslawischen/kroatischen Migrationspolitik auf die Praktiken und Verhaltensweisen der MigrantInnen. Das Projekt wird in Kooperation mit dem Südost-Institut, Regensburg, durchgeführt"

People on the move in Bosnia and Herzegovina: Stuck in the Corridors to the EU

Description
Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) have been part of the “Balkan route” for smuggling people, arms and drugs for decades, but also a migrant route for people who have been trying to reach Western Europe and the countries of the EU in order to save their lives and secure a future for themselves. While in 2015, when millions of people arrived in Europe over a short period of time, BiH was bypassed by mass movements, the situation started changing after the closure of the EU borders in 2016, and later on, in 2017, with the increase of violence and push backs in Croatia, and other countries at the EU borders. This report offers insight into the situation on the field: is there a system responsible for protection, security, and upholding fundamental human rights? What has the state response been like? What is the role of the international community?

Trade Unions, Transnational Solidarity and Ethnic Divisions: EU Social Dialogue and Post-War Reconstruction in the Western Balkans

Principal investigator Branka Likic-Brboric (REMESO Project Leader)
Description
The research project addresses the EU's regional approach to support countries in the Western Balkans in their progress towards EU membership. It focuses on the social reconstruction in post-war Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia and the regional dialogue on social and employment policies within the Bucharest process. The study investigates local and national trade unions strategies to challenge downward pressure on labour rights and standards brought about by the implementation of a neoliberal model of reconstruction. It analyses the counter-influence of European social dimension as well as practices of the international organizations such as the UNDP, ILO and International Trade Unions Confederation (ITUC) and civil society organizations on the development of 'transethnic' regional solidarities. It also examines the forms of labour collaboration necessary to counterbalance hostile employers and governments. The main question concerns the efficacy of EU support for social dialogue and the implementation of the ILO 'decent work agenda' in empowering trade unions in their struggle for labour rights and standards in post-conflict former Yugoslavia. The issue is especially pertinent considering the wider study of post-conflict societies, marked by social fragmentation, ethnic divisions, political clientelism, poverty, informal economy and migration pressures.

Forced displacement and refugee-host community solidarity (FOCUS)

Principal investigator Nahikari Irastorza (Project Leader), Jason Tucker (Project Leader ), Pieter Bevelander (Participants)
Description
This project starts from the basic assumptions that forced migration to the European Union will continue in the future due to a number of different push and pull factors, that influx of refugees will influence the social, political and economic landscape of receiving societies, and that there are a variety of costs and benefits of integrating refugees in the host societies that are reflected in relational dynamics between the host and refugee communities. Bearing these considerations in mind, the goal of FOCUS is to increase the understanding of and to provide effective and evidence-based solutions for the challenges of forced migration within host communities. By doing so, it also aims at contributing to increased tolerance, peaceful coexistence, and reduced radicalization across Europe and the Middle East. Based on a comprehensive mapping and trans-disciplinary, multi-site field research conducted in Jordan, Croatia, Germany and Sweden, FOCUS explores the socio-psychological dimensions of refugee and host-community relations and analyses the socio-economic integration of refugees and the consequences of this in host societies. This knowledge is then used to transform and strengthen existing promising solutions for social and labour market integration. The integration solutions will be pilot tested in at least five European countries by governmental and non-governmental end-users. The solutions are finally brought together in the Refugee and Host Community Toolbox, which will support policy makers, municipal actors, civil society organisations and other stakeholders in responding to the needs of both refugees and host communities and thereby act as agents of change in this field.

VOLPOWER; the role of volunteers in migrant incorporation

Description
Glasgow Caledonian University leads the EU AMIF (Asylum and Migrant Integration Fund) funded two-year project VOLPOWER: Enhancing Community Building and Social Integration through Dialogue and Collaboration amongst Young Europeans and Third Country Nationals. The project team consists of Professor Umut Korkut as coordinator, and Dr Fiona Reid and Dr Fiona Skillen as Principal Investigators as well as Marcus Nicolson as the Project Manager. GCU leads a consortium composed of Erasmus University Rotterdam, Austrian Academy of Sciences – Institute for Urban and Regional Research, EURAC-Institute for Minority Rights Bolzano, Zavod APIS Slovenia, SOS Malta, and IRMO Croatia. Volpower explores how youth volunteering in sports and arts activities can serve as a mechanism for social integration for youth. Sport and arts activities by their very nature demand high levels of interaction between participants. We believe that this interaction could help to foster, and facilitate community building and mutual understanding. In particular, we will be working with EU Nationals and Third Country Nationals in order to understand the challenges TCN’s face when settling within a new community. We hope that our research will demonstrate the power that volunteering can have in terms of empowering individuals within their local communities. The project will examine these ideas by working with volunteers in sport and arts organisations from across Europe. The main aims of this project are to initiate youth volunteering in sport and arts related activities amongst EU and TCNs in order to explore the effects which volunteering has on an individual’s or communities’ sense of social integration. The specific project objectives are summarised as follows: To increase integration of TCN volunteers into local communities through sport and arts volunteering, exposing TCNs to informal and formal institutions within their localities. To improve partnership between EUN and TCN volunteers through sports and arts volunteering. To provide participants with intercultural skills as well as life and leadership skills. 
 To generate communication between the local communities and volunteers of TCN and EUN backgrounds. To foreground the value of volunteering for community building through developing partnerships between the sports and arts volunteers and community stakeholders. To foster common grounds and goals for sustainable partnerships through dialogue, collaboration, and resource sharing enhanced by sports and arts volunteering. To assess practices for the inclusion of TCNs at the micro-community level via sports and arts and how participation in these activities forge intercultural dialogue and processes of integration. To introduce digital tools in illustrating good practice in volunteering.
