La crise financière mondiale: quel impact sur l’avenir de la migration des Tunisiens en Italie ?

Authors Habib FOURATI
Description
Résumé L’article examine les effets de la crise économique mondiale actuelle sur les migrations tunisiennes vers l’Italie. Par ailleurs, l’on se demande si la crise financière a déjà commencé à affecter la situation économique et sociale des émigrés tunisiens en Italie, en utilisant les transferts financiers des travailleurs migrants tunisiens ont comme indicateur de leurs conditions socio-économiques. A partir de données collectées soit dans le pays de destination soit en Tunisie, l’article conclut que pour l’instant la crise n’a pas produit d’impact très net sur l’effectif des migrants ni diminué les transferts financiers du revenu du travail. Abstract This paper aims to capture the effects of the current economic crisis on Tunisian migratory flows towards Italy. Moreover, it addresses the extent to which the socio-economic conditions of Tunisian residents in Italy have been impacted by these unfavorable trends ; regarding this latter point, remittances sent by Tunisians to their country of origin are used as a proxy of their socio-economic status. By using data collected both in the destination and origin country, we find evidence that the economic crisis did not affect quantitatively Tunisian migration to Italy, nor impact the economic conditions of Tunisians migrants in Italy.

Indian Diversities in Italy: Italian case study

Authors Kathryn LUM
Description
This paper presents an overview of the main characteristics of the Indian population in Italy, with a special focus on the two main regional groups from India present in Italy: the Punjabis and the Malayalis. It discusses their migration trajectories, demographic profile, occupational profile, the role of caste and gender within the Indian population, the importance of remittances to India, and the impact that Italian migration policy has had upon this group, as well as other non-EU nationals more generally. It also presents an overview of the legal framework governing residence permits and access to citizenship, describing the most frequent migration pathways employed by Indians in Italy. It concludes with a discussion of the sociocultural integration of the Indian population and their perception in the Italian media.

Media case study on Italy

Authors Elena BORGHI
Description
The paper discusses the representation of the Indian community in the Italian press. Taking into account articles from national and local newspapers published in the last three years, the author analyzes the ways in which the press generally depicts Indian immigrants in positive and sympathetic tones, noting that this comes at the price of a widespread essentialisation. Such simplifications are particularly evident in press reports dealing with Indian culture and religion, and in analyses of the gender rules and roles governing the private and family life of Indian people. The relatively recent character of Indian immigration to Italy, the low-profile and often isolated lives Indian people lead, mixed with common sense notions and stereotypes about Indians, at times hinder balanced representations of this community. Several efforts in this direction are nonetheless visible in many of the articles analysed in this paper.

Missing Migrants in the Mediterranean: Addressing the Humanitarian Crisis

Authors THE MEDITERRANEAN MISSING PROJECT
Description
The Mediterranean Missing research project has sought to understand both the impact on families of having a relative missing in migration, and the law, policy and practice around the identification of bodies of dead migrants in Italy and Greece. Interviews with families of missing migrants from five countries confirmed the huge impact of not knowing the fate of loved ones, with families tortured by ambiguity and suffering a range of emotional and psychological consequences. In Lesbos, Greece, and Sicily, Italy, interviews with authorities, civil society and others confirm the presence of a policy vacuum around the issue of the missing, despite the duties on states imposed by human rights law. Investigation of deaths is inadequate, with effective post-mortem data collection and management challenged by the huge numbers of migrants, in some cases sufficiently to compromise future identification. In both Greece and Italy, response is characterised by a policy vacuum, with a large number of agencies with overlapping mandates lacking coordination. Whilst in Italy a dedicated Commission and its partners have demonstrated what can be done with appropriate resources, there is a need to ensure that all the dead benefit from such an approach. A constraint in both contexts remains the lack of outreach to families of the missing, who can provide ante-mortem data to enable identification, and who should anyway be at the centre of all efforts to address the issue and identify the dead.

Circular Migration Between Italy and Morocco: A case study

Authors Camilla DEVITT
Description
Circular economic migration refers to circular movements, which are partly motivated by either making or saving money. Moroccan migration to Italy has been sedentary rather than circular over the past two decades due to four main factors: visa requirements; employee status and employment based work permits; low earnings; and the absence of a livelihood in Morocco. I present a typology of forms of circular migration between Morocco and Italy based on existing theoretical and empirical research on (circular) migration and interviews with 30 Moroccan circular economic migrants and 21 Italian and Moroccan policymakers, stakeholders, key informants and researchers, conducted during the period June-November 2010. Italian and Moroccan policies, which incentivise and obstruct circularity are also discussed.

Border Problems. Lebanon, UNIFIL and Italian participation

Authors Lucrezia Gwinnett LIGUORI
Description
: In their study of prejudice and intolerance in Italy, Sniderman and colleagues found that for Italians generalised mistrust and the feeling of economic insecurity are essential determinants in negative attitudes toward immigrants and that categorization is the mediator in the model. The same model tested in Italy, namely the “Two Flavours” model, has been applied in the Dutch context to explore the factors that can best predict the prejudice of Dutch people toward ethnic minorities in the Netherlands. Expressive and psychological factors as well as instrumental, rational factors are employed to predict prejudice. Categorization is hypothesised to be the most proximate factor accounting for prejudice. The results demonstrate the importance of categorization and mistrust in the formation of prejudicial attitudes, but suggest no mediator effect for mistrust, economic insecurity and categorization.

Emigrating in times of crisis : highlights and new data from an e-survey on highskilled emigrants from Southern Europe and Ireland

Authors Ruby GROPAS, Anna TRIANDAFYLLIDOU
Description
In 2013, the EUI’s Global Governance Programme launched an e-survey to gather new qualitative data on high-skill emigration from five EU Member States hard hit by the crisis: Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal and Spain. The e-survey was launched in collaboration with Real Elcano Institute, Trinity College Dublin and the Technical University of Lisbon. It was launched simultaneously in five languages (English, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) and ran between 21st May and 18th August 2013. This report examines emigration of high-skilled citizens from five EU Member States hard hit by the crisis: Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal and Spain. It presents a general overview of the data generated from the web-based survey on ‘Emigration from Southern Europe and Ireland’ coordinated by the Global Governance Programme of the EUI.

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.

The Migratory Patterns of Egyptians in Italy and France

Authors Ayman ZOHRY
Description
In recent years, a new migration stream from Egypt to Europe, especially to Italy and France, has been observed. In this study, an attempt is made to explore Egyptian migratory patterns in these two countries. Firstly, migration statistics and estimates of Egyptians abroad vary according to source. The Egyptian estimates are always higher than the receiving countries’ estimates and, sometimes, estimates vary from one source to another within one country. These discrepancies in the statistics are explored. Secondly, a qualitative research project was carried out in Italy and France to learn about the patterns of Egyptian migration in these two countries. Moreover, migration policies and the living and working conditions of Egyptians in these two destinations are explored. Qualitative methods are utilized through the interviewing of 36 Egyptians in Milan and Paris in 2008. Interviewees were identified utilizing the snowball technique. In addition to the in-depth interviews, group discussions and observations were utilized to fulfill the objectives of this study. After the introductory section, contemporary Egyptian migration is explained in Section II. Section III is devoted to the explanation of the discrepancies between statistics on Egyptian migrants. Section V explores Egyptian migration policies and cooperation on migration. The penultimate section is devoted to the living and working conditions of Egyptians in Milan and Paris, while the last section offers a conclusion.

The Quiet Indian Revolution in Italy´s Dairy Industry

Authors Kathryn LUM
Description
This paper discusses why and how Indians from the Punjab state of India have come to dominate the dairy industry in Northern Italy. Through interviews with Italian employers, we learn how Indians came to replace native Italians in this sector, emerging as the preferred group among dairy owners against other groups of immigrants. Interviews with Indian dairy workers and their families shed light on the daily working conditions in this industry, how Indians view their work, and the impact that their work has on their wives and children. The final two sections are devoted to local views of the Indian presence in the dairy industry, with both union and Italian press perspectives offered. The paper concludes by arguing that this quiet immigrant success story is an example of a ´win-win´ employment situation for both the Italian economy and Indian migrants.

The migration and integration of Moroccan and Ukrainian migrants in Italy : policies and measures

Authors Anna DI BARTOLOMEO, Giuseppe GABRIELLI, Salvatore STROZZA
Description
The present report looks at the integration of Moroccan and Ukrainian migrants living in Italy. Beyond being quantitatively important in the Italian context, these two groups differ largely in terms of demographic characteristics, migration patterns and insertion modalities but also with respect to emigration and diaspora policies. Two core aspects of integration are emphasized in this report. First, integration processes are evaluated from a multi-dimensional perspective. Second, the role played by origin (and destination) country determinants in facilitating or constraining integration is investigated. Origin determinants include the ties between migrants and their country of origin, country-fixed characteristics, diaspora and emigration policies at origin and the engagement and role of non-state organisations. To this aim, three sets of data have been employed, making this report largely multidisciplinary: an in-depth analytical description of the legal and political frameworks at origin and destination, a quantitative analysis and an explorative qualitative survey. This report finds evidence that integration levels, determinants and, specifically, the role of origin factors vary largely across dimensions. In the labour market, both Moroccan and Ukrainian migrants living in Italy show high levels of integration. These extremely positive performances seem due more to destination than origin factors - namely Italy’s labour market specificities and migration history. Conversely, origin determinants presumably have a lower impact. In addition, the role played by NGOs appears relevant in helping migrants find employment - not good employment or well-remunerated employment but just employment. In the education dimension, things differ. At an international level, Ukrainians living in Italy show good levels of integration once controlled for natives’ performance. Origin determinants - in terms of conditions at home - thus seem to prevail here. Not surprisingly, the degree of integration in the ‘access to citizenship’ dimension is connected to the degree of openness/restrictiveness of host citizenship laws and, accordingly, to the length of presence in the country. Our results confirm that Italy is still one of the countries where getting citizenship is one of the main constraints for migrants in both recent communities (Ukrainians) and well-established ones (Moroccans). Finally, cultural integration is a main obstacle to Moroccan integration, while Ukrainians are also found to be in a difficult position with respect to social and political integration. In terms of ties between migrants and their country of origin, a micro-level analysis confirms a very clear pattern: the lower the (cultural, economic, political, social) ties, the higher the level of integration. This applies - to a different extent - to all dimensions and types of ties.

The integration of migrants in Italy : an overview of policy instruments and actors

Authors Elena CANEVA
Description
Despite the 2008 economic crisis and the increase in emigration flows, immigration to Italy has continued, albeit to a lesser extent than in previous years. In 2013 immigrants stood at 7.4% of the country population. Nevertheless, immigration is still considered a problem, even an emergency: political and public attention is often focussed on illegal migration, whereas a well-structured integration policy discourse is nowhere to be seen. This paper offers an insight into this issue, giving an overview on integration policies in Italy: which social actors are involved in the formulation and implementation of these policies, and how the issue is discussed in public and political discourses. Mapping the main policy tools and social actors in migrant integration, the paper highlights how Italian integration policies are mostly concentrated on economic integration, whereas social and cultural policies remain marginal. The paper also shows that a gap between policies and practices may occur, due to failed or absent policies, which is largely compensated for by the intervention of non-state actors.

Reluctant Circularities: The interplay between integration, return and circular migration within the Albanian migration to Italy

Authors Nick MAI
Description
The findings of the METOIKOS research project do not corroborate a politicised celebration of the circularisation of migration as a win-win situation for both countries of origin and destination. The majority of migrants interviewed in this research were reluctantly and ambivalently oscillating between Albania and Italy. For most, circulating is a way to achieve the migratory flexibility they need to negotiate their livelihoods between societies and labour markets characterised by the different opportunities, predicaments and degrees of socioeconomic and political instability. Most Albanian migrants do not choose to circulate, but accept to do so in order to secure the sustainability of projects of settlement abroad and/or return home which are still not completed or which became unsustainable in the context of the global financial crisis of the late 2000s. For younger people and women, particularly if they are studying, oscillating between Albania and Italy is both a way to reconcile the contradictory moral worlds brought together by their diasporic trajectories and a way to gain the socio-cultural capital to bypass widespread dynamics of corruption and preferential access to the labour market in Albania.
