"UE cultural policy and intercultural dialogue in time of globalization: a comparative study of values concerning cultural heritage for civil society (Faro-Convention, 2005)"

'VALOGLOB project has the scope to analyse Faro-Convention (2005) using a research methodology based on a systemic approach (Morin, 2005), a cross-cultural comparative study (Demorgon, 2004) with the World Heritage Convention (UNESCO, 1972) and field case studies in Europe, Euro-Mediterranean area and Russia. These objectives have the aim to better understand theoretical and practical mechanisms of a legal text (Faro-Convention, 2005) with great impacts on civil society (museums and inhabitants). Since the Second World War, tens of Conventions, Recommendations and Declarations on cultural heritage were adopted by governments. These normative instruments are rarely studied in a cross-cultural approach with main focus on citizenship as a key actor regarding its implementation. Faro-Convention (2005) stresses its aims on the values of cultural heritage for society. In time of globalisation, cultural heritage cannot be anymore a topic discussed only by specialists, but a dialogue in permanent interaction with the civil society in order to build a common European identify based on “diversity” and “unity”. To carry out this project, the researcher (PhD) has a great research experience (temporary Lecturer at University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France), has been involved in French and international projects (FP6, FP7, AECID, ANR), got a research award nomination titled “Cultural Policy Research Award” (CPRA, 2010), has published 3 peer-reviewed articles has an extended professional experience (Cambodia, Gabon, Sudan, Latin America, Russia, etc.) in international organisations (International Council of Museums (ICOM), UNESCO, APSARA, etc.). The IUEE, Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) will give to the applicant the opportunity to carry out her research project in a major European and multicultural centre for intercultural dialogue and cultural policies dissemination for the Mediterranean basin and beyond (Russia).'

MACIMIDE Global Expatriate Dual Citizenship Database

The MACIMIDE Global Expatriate Dual Citizenship Dataset charts the rules that existed in near all states of the world since 1960 with regard to the loss or renunciation of citizenship after a citizen of a respective state voluntarily acquires the citizenship of another state. The central variable of the Dataset is the dualcit_cat variable. This is a categorical variable whose values may be used to interpret, in broad lines, the position of a country with regards to the expatriate dual citizenship. The dualcit_cat variable reflects what consequences the legislation and legal practice of a country attaches to the voluntary acquisition of a foreign citizenship. The value of this variable depends on a number of criteria, including whether a citizen of the reference country who voluntarily obtains a foreign citizenship automatically loses – in principle – the citizenship of the origin country, and whether a citizen of the reference country can renounce that citizenship. The value assigned to dualcit_cat reflects the position of the country on the 1st of January of the reference year. Any subsequent changes in legislation will be reflected in the dualcit_cat value of the following year and included in updated versions of the Dataset. The dualcit_binary variable is a recoding of the dualcit_cat variable. This variable can be used for broad comparisons of the dual citizenship positions around the world. The possible values reflect whether the legislation of a country, in a given reference year, provides for the automatic loss of the origin citizenship (1) or not (2). All data have been centrally collected and refer to specific provisions in national law.

World Population Policies Database

Since the mid-1970s, the World Population Policies Database, last updated in 2015, provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on the population policy situation and trends for all Member States and non-member States of the United Nations. Among several areas, the database shows the evolution of government views and policies with respect to internal and international migration. The migration strand covers internal migration, immigration, emigration, and return. The Database is updated biennially by conducting a detailed country-by-country review of national plans and strategies, programme reports, legislative documents, official statements and various international, Inter-governmental and non-governmental sources, as well as by using official responses to the United Nations Inquiry among Governments on Population and Development.

UN Inquiry on population and development - International Migration

The Inquiry gathers critically important data for monitoring the implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and other international agreements, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Inquiry, mandated by the General Assembly in its resolution 1838 (XVII) of 18 December 1962, has been conducted by the Secretary-General at regular intervals since 1963. The Twelfth Inquiry consists of multiple-choice questions, organized in three thematic modules: Module I on population ageing and urbanization; Module II on fertility, family planning and reproductive health; and Module III on international migration. In 1994, Member States attending the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo agreed that “population-related goals and policies are integral parts of cultural, economic and social development” and recommended that actions be taken “to measure, assess, monitor and evaluate progress towards meeting the goals of its Programme of Action”. The year 2019 will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Cairo conference and adoption of the ICPD Programme of Action, which continues to provide crucial guidance for addressing the fundamental development challenges facing the world today. Population issues are also at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted in 2015. The United Nations Inquiry among Governments on Population and Development (the “Inquiry”) gathers critically important data for monitoring the implementation of the ICPD Programme of Action and other international agreements, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Inquiry, mandated by the General Assembly in its resolution 1838 (XVII) of 18 December 1962, has been conducted by the Secretary-General at regular intervals since 1963. The most recent Inquiry, the Eleventh, was implemented in 2014.
