Survey of Foreigners’ Incomes, Expenditures and Remittances

Principal investigator Yana Leontiyeva (principal investigator)
Description
The principal goal of this project funded by the Czech Statistical Office was to gather quantitative data in order to improve the methodology employed to estimate the remittances made by migrants. The primary task of the project implemented by the Institute of Sociology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic was to conduct a questionnaire-based survey (with 1,000 respondents) which would gather quantitative information on the incomes and expenses of immigrants currently living in the Czech Republic, as well as the remittances they send abroad. In accordance with a Czech Statistical Office request, the survey targeted 5 groups of economically active non-EU immigrants based on their citizenship: Ukrainians, Vietnamese, Russians, Moldavians and the citizens from the former Yugoslavia (excluding Slovenia which is an EU member state since 2004).

Moldavané v Praze (Česko) a Turíně (Itálie)

Principal investigator Dušan Drbohlav (principal investigator)
Description
Poznat v komparaci hlavní rysy migrace a integrace Moldavanů pobývajících v Praze a Turíně skrze analýzu motivací k migraci, podmíněností, mechanismů a dopadů migrace a finančních a sociálních remitencí včetně souvisejících aspektů rozvoje. Projekt se dotýká tématu v Česku zatím omezeně či vůbec nesledovaného. Soustřeďuje se na poznání charakteru a významu finančních remitencí (velikost, formy, frekvence a užití) a sociálních remitencí (hodnoty, chování, identita a sociální kapitál) moldavských migrantů v Praze (Česku) a Turíně (Itálii). Je tak činěno v širším kontextu analýzy migračních a integračních vzorců těchto migrantů, přičemž není opomenuto poznání situace ve vlastní mateřské zemi Moldavsku. Cenný je komparativní přístup (srovnání situace ve dvou rozdílných aglomeracích stejně jako dvou skupin migrantů – Moldavanů s a bez rumunského pasu/občanství) i aplikace tzv. „smíšené metody“ (spojení kvantitativních a kvalitativních přístupů). Design projektu kromě jiného umožňuje přispět k poznání významu a role současné migrace pro rozvoj Moldavska, k hodnocení migrační a integrační politiky obou cílových zemí i EU, stejně jako k návrhům doporučujícím zlepšení české statistiky remitencí.

Principal investigator František Freiberg (principal investigator), Dušan Drbohlav (investigator)
Description
Projekt navazuje na výzkumy jednotlivých institucí v oblasti migrace, trhu práce a podnikových procesů a reaguje na změny, kterými prochází společnost, průmysl a ekonomika. Zaměřuje se na model řízené migrace z Ukrajiny jako nástroje snížení deficitu pracovních sil a zvýšení výkonnosti české ekonomiky. Propojuje společenskovědní výzkum se sférou průmysl. výroby. Řešení projektu vyústí do metodik (necertifikovaných) a pilotních aplikací pro nábor a přípravu zahraniční pracovní síly podle potřeb podniků, což představuje ucelené a inovativní řešení, které v ČR zatím nebylo aplikováno. Hl. uživateli výstupů jsou podniky vybraných segmentů zpracovatelského průmyslu a instituce je zastřešující. Výsledky budou též inspirací pro státní sféru a přispějí i k naplnění Národní iniciativy Průmysl 4.0.

Inequalities and Multiple Discrimination in Access to Health

Description
In the European Union context existing legislation on non-discrimination (Equality Directives of 2000 and various directives on equality of men and women) oblige Member States to eliminate inequalities of treatment on grounds of gender, age, race and ethnic origin, religion, disability and sexual orientation. While there is an increasing awareness and knowledge of how single equality grounds impact on (in-) equality in different societal domains, the intersection of different grounds remains little understood, particularly in the area of health care. Against this background, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has launched a study on inequality, multiple and intersectional discrimination in access to health in selected EU Member States (Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Sweden and the UK). Aim of the study • To gain a better understanding of particular vulnerabilities resulting from the intersection of ethnic origin, age and gender in access to health care and quality of care in five EU-Member States (Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Sweden and the UK) • To formulate recommendations how this situation can be improved. The empirical research involving more than 300 interviews with health professionals, policy makers and health users is set within a broader analysis of literature, evidence, legal context and mapping of policy initiatives since the 1990s in the 5 Member States and at the EU level. Target group Health care users belonging to vulnerable groups at the intersection of gender, age and ethnic origin Objectives • Identify barriers of access to health care services (ease with which health care can be obtained; quality of health care service) faced by the target group • Map the initiatives undertaken by Member States at policy level to enable and improve access to health services and quality of health for the target group • Identify the ways in which health professionals address the care needs of the target group Outcomes • Summary report (mainly targeted at policy makers; it includes evidence-based advice for tackling issues and cases of multiple and intersectional discrimination) • Comparative report (overview of legal and policy instruments dealing with multiple discrimination across the EU) • 5 Country thematic fact files including recommendations for good practice and policies applicable in the five countries and more widely in the European Union • Good practice handbook based on evidence collected through the research (selection of good practices effectively addressing multiple discrimination across the EU)

Model of Civic Integration of Immigrants in Europe: Case of Austria and the Czech Republic

Principal investigator Anna Lukešová (Principal Investigator)
Description
Civic integration represents a modern phenomenon in the field of integration of immigrants in Europe. Until the end of the 20th century, integration policies in Europe were perceived from the point of view of national models characteristic for particular countries. However, at the turn of the century, a new approach to integration policies, which is referred to as civic integration, emerged. It is used by countries whose traditional approaches to immigrant integration have varied considerably. And, as this work points out, the model is further extending to Central European countries, which are tackling with some degree of immigration as well. The research aims at studying the implementation of the civic integration model in Central Europe, on the example of Austria and the Czech Republic. It will focus on issues of multilevel governance in the field of civic integration in the countries concerned, with an emphasis on the role of local governments in the process of policy making and implementation, and their comparison. The research will use documentary analysis as well as semi-structured interviews and participant observation of integration activities themselves. The outputs of the project are to contribute to the widening of knowledge about the use of civic integration measures in countries that are not sufficiently covered in the scientific debate. The results of the research will also be used in the dissertation work of the principal researcher.

Family Migration Policies in Europe

Description
Family related migration has been the dominant legal mode of entry in Europe for the past decades. Traditionally, granting migrants the right to family union has been considered as promoting their integration into receiving societies. Objectives • To analyse family migration policies in 9 European countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain and the UK) from two perspectives: • “top-down” approach – analyses legislation, public debates and expert interviews in the context of policies and policy-making of family related migration. • “bottom-up” approach – investigates the impact of conditionalities and restrictions on migrants and their families and the responses and strategies migrants adopt to cope with these and to organise their family lives. Outcomes The project provides evidences that: • Family related modes of entry have been increasingly subject to restrictions, while existing conditionalities have been tightened up. • In current debates about ethnic closure of migrant communities and the alleged “failure” of integration, the “migrant family” is increasingly seen as an obstacle to integration, as a site characterised by patriarchal relationships and illiberal practices and traditions such as arranged and forced marriages.
