Imagining Europe from the Outside (EUMAGINE)

Description
Data on the impact of perception of human rights and demogracy on migration aspirations. Imagining Europe from the Outside investigated the impact of perceptions of human rights and democracy on migration aspirations and decisions. Funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme, the EUMAGINE project involved more than thirty researchers in seven countries who worked to understand how people in Morocco, Senegal, Turkey and Ukraine relate to the possibility of migration. Following the end of the project in 2013, its data is now available to interested researchers.

Les Migrations entre l'Afrique et l'Europe

Principal investigator Cris Beauchemin (Principal Investigator)
Description
L’objectif principal du projet de recherche MAFE est de fournir des données quantitatives et originales sur les caractéristiques et les comportements des migrants d’Afrique subsaharienne. Il vise à palier à l’absence de données complètes sur les causes des migrations et les modes de circulation entre l’Afrique et l’Europe. Les retours, la circulation et les pratiques transnationales des migrants doivent être correctement compris pour concevoir de meilleurs politiques de migration. Le projet MAFE étudie les flux migratoires entre l’Europe et le Sénégal, la République Démocratique du Congo et le Ghana, qui représentent plus du quart des migrations africaines vers l’Europe. Thème 1 : rendre compte des tendances des migrations entre l’Afrique et l’Europe. Thème 2 : Expliquer les départes, mais aussi les retours. Thème 3 : Intégration et réintégration des migrants. Thème 4 : Migrations internationales et changements familiaux.

African Migrant Women

Description
On the margins of the EU, African women migrants can be important transmitters of social cultural practices. But in certain societies of immigration (France, Spain) these women, because of the ageing factor can be victims of some kind of discrimination. Often their husbands can replace them for new co-spouses. This situation creates tensions and that is, for the women, all the more constraining and painful when the women carry on a productive and reproductive activity. this proposal, through a specific anthropological demography methodology, wants to bring into question meaningful motions of ethnicity, transnationalisation, gender and the changing context in relation to aesthetic and body concepts of African women in the settlement countries mainly in Spain and France (Europe) and in Senegal and Gambia (Africa).

Klimawandel, Umweltveränderungen und Migration: Sozial-ökologische Bedingungen von Bevölkerungsbewegungen am Beispiel der Sahelländer Mali und Senegal

Principal investigator Martin Doevenspeck (Principal Investigator ), Diana Hummel (Principal Investigator ), Cyrus Samimi (Principal Investigator ), Wolfgang Lutz (Principal Investigator )
Description
Das interdisziplinäre Forschungsprojekt MICLE beschäftigt sich mit den Umweltwandel und Migration in Mali und Senegal. Politiker und Wissenschaftler bezeichnen den Klimawandel als eine der größten Bedrohungen für menschliche Entwicklung in Afrika und sagen massive Bevölkerungsbewegungen als Folge einer zunehmenden Zahl von Extremereignissen wie Dürren, von zunehmender Wasserknappheit, Abnahme der Nahrungsmittelproduktion und Verlust an Biodiversität voraus. Dabei ist das Konstrukt der „Umweltflucht“ aufgrund des ihm inhärenten Geodeterminismus, der konzeptionellen Unklarheiten und politischen Instrumentalisierungen höchst problematisch. Umweltveränderungen als Hauptursache für Migration zu identifizieren ist praktisch unmöglich. Daher beschäftigt sich das Forschungsprojekt mit den multiplen Ursachen von Migration im Sahel um die internen Logiken zu verstehen und Migrationsbewegungen theoretisch zu kontextualisieren.

Mediale Ausgestaltung translokaler sozialer Räume durch westafrikanische MigrantInnen in Europa

Principal investigator Dorothea E. Schulz (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das Forschungsprojekt untersucht die Organisationsformen und medialen Praktiken westafrikanischer Migrantinnen, die von Deutschland aus ‚Gemeinschaft’ herstellen. Im Fokus der empirischen Untersuchung stehen kaum erforschte religiöse und nicht-religiöse Vereinigungen von Senegalesinnen in Deutschland (Berlin) und deren Vernetzungen innerhalb Europas und in den Senegal (hauptsächlich Dakar). Dabei wird zum einen davon ausgegangen, dass westafrikanische Migrantinnen sich durch soziale Praktiken, die mit der Produktion und Rezeption von Medien einhergehen, sowohl in ihrer Herkunftsgesellschaftals auch in der europäischen Aufnahmegesellschaft verorten. Zum anderen trägt das Projekt der Bedeutung Rechnung, die moralisierende, bisweilen religiös kodierte Idiome bei der Formulierung der eigenen Zugehörigkeit dieser Migrantengruppen spielen. Durch die Untersuchung translokaler Migrationsbezüge, die Senegal mit Deutschland in Verbindung setzen, positioniert sich das Projekt innovativ am Schnittpunkt zwischen Medienanthropologie und Sozialanthropologie, indem es die Rolle von Medienpraktiken bei der Ausgestaltung von translokalen, sozialen Zusammenhängen untersucht. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt dabei auf Analysen von z.B. Hochzeitsvideos, Facebook-Profilen und Mobiltelefonen und deren Aneignung durch Nutzer unterschiedlichen Alters und Geschlechts.

ImPol Database (Immigration Policies)

Description
The database (ImPol) contains 27 quantitative indicators to measure the entry dimension of immigration policies. The indicators are grouped in five dimensions: Immigration policy concerning irregular entry/residence; Short stay entry policy; Family reunification policy; Policies on entry for study; Work immigration policy. The ImPol dataset was originally conceived as a tool to complement the individual survey data collection carried out in the context of the MAFE-Senegal Project. The information collected so far is limited to France, Italy, and Spain, which are the main destinations of Senegalese migrants in Europe and focuses predominantly on the period from the 1960s until 2008. The legal texts consulted reflect the general policy regime in the three European countries and are hence of use for analyses addressing questions about immigration from a variety of origin countries. In addition, authors collected texts (bilateral agreements) addressing the specific case of the Senegalese. The type of information contained in the ImPol dataset can be used for a wide range of both contextual and statistical analyses

Entrepreneurial Chinese Migrants and Petty African Entrepreneurs: Local Impacts of Interaction in Urban West Africa (Ghana and Senegal)

Principal investigator Karsten Giese (Principal Investigator ), Laurence Marfaing (Principal Investigator )
Description
Research Questions Where do Chinese migrant entrepreneurs come from and why do they migrate? Where do they settle, and how do they organize their economic and social activities? How are they perceived by local and migrant African entrepreneurs in their host country? Does this perception correspond to the discourse of cooperation propagated by the Chinese and African governments? How does the Chinese presence influence the development of African host societies? Contribution to International Research This comparative study on the Chinese migration into two West African countries explores the economic and political processes triggered by the Chinese migration. It analyses the interactions of the local population with the Chinese migrant entrepreneurs as well as the former’s innovative reactions toward the strategies and practices of the latter. The combination of the different regional research capacities at the GIGA within one research team allows us to address this multidimensional research problem with adequate regional and multidisciplinary competences and research strategies. Research Design and Methods Our research field is characterized by high degrees of informality, especially regarding migratory paths, residence status, economic activities, social organization and the political action of all actors involved. In view of this, existing quantitative data on the micro- and meso-levels could not be taken as a reliable basis for our analyses. Moreover, the economic interests that characterize our field had the effect of reduced acceptance on the part of our informants of standardized instruments such as questionnaires. For these reasons, our research concentrates on coordinated qualitative comparative case studies within and across Ghana and Senegal in order to produce reliable research findings. In accordance with our research questions, qualitative data collection was conducted on a micro-level, drawing on the method of actor-centred participant observation and its adaptations in narrative interviews. Additional semi-structured interviews were conducted to ensure comparability across cases. In addition, visual ethnographic methods were applied (photo essays, network-mapping) as a basis for joint interpretation in the overarching research context. Preliminary Results We had assumed that networks formed the dominant model of social organization for both the African and the Chinese actors and groups we studied, and that networks were the key factors to understanding the interaction between these two groups. In the field, however, we were unable to establish any empirical evidence that the Chinese individual economic sojourners (or small groups forming family-owned businesses), whose business models tend to be highly speculative, are engaging in any form of meaningful social and economic interaction with their African counterparts beyond primarily functional and opportunistic buyer–seller or employer–employee relationships. African traders also did not reveal any stronger motivation to open their networks to their Chinese counterparts. Based on our observations, we conclude that a wide range of African actors engages in innovative practices not through social exchange and mutually beneficial cooperation with the Chinese newcomers but by creatively appropriating the unintended opportunities that Chinese actors provide in the local African settings through their distinct social and economic practices. However, the significations that are inscribed into the diverse Chinese social and economic practices and the stimuli they represent are contested between diverse African actors, since their social and economic positioning, their interests and interpretations, and their capacities for adaptation differ greatly. The Chinese business strategy of large-scale wholesale trading in combination with the low cost of the commodities they sell has facilitated the engagement of larger social strata with limited financial means in trading activities. These changes in market access, not least, have had a profound impact on Senegalese and Ghanaian market orders. Not surprisingly, many of the new traders whose access to this profession has directly benefited from the Chinese presence also closely observe the latter’s business strategies. All interviewed Chinese traders, for instance, unanimously employed the logic of high turnovers at small profit rates, aspiring to maximize incomes through sheer volume. Once the African traders have realized that trading in Chinese goods provides solid opportunities for capital accumulation and growth, they have turned their gaze toward China as source for their commodities.

Economie politique de la migration internationale et de ses effets sur les pays d’origine. Analyse du Sénégal et du Mali

Description
L’objectif du projet POLECOMI est de comprendre comment la migration et les transferts collectifs des migrants influencent l’économie politique des pays d’origine, en prenant comme objets d’étude le Mali et le Sénégal. Il existe une abondante littérature académique concernant les effets économiques de la migration et des transferts des migrants dans les pays d’origine. A l’inverse, peu d’attention a été accordée à leurs conséquences politiques à l’exception de quelques études portant sur le Mexique, et nouvellement sur l’Inde. Le Mali et le Sénégal n’ont, à notre connaissance, pas fait l’objet d’études sur ce sujet précis. Pourtant, ces deux pays sont des terrains d’étude particulièrement intéressants pour aborder la question de l’économie politique de la migration. Tous deux ont une longue tradition de migration, et les migrants participent de longue date au financement des biens publics locaux dans leurs villages d’origine. Il s’agit également de deux démocraties jeunes et fragiles, dont les institutions politiques sont en construction. Ce projet de recherche est de nature multidisciplinaire. Nous comptons à la fois mener des études de cas qualitatives auprès de six associations maliennes et sénégalaises en France et en Italie ainsi que dans les communautés d’origine où ces associations interviennent, et produire des travaux quantitatifs à partir notamment d’une enquête communautaire et individuelle représentative au niveau national que nous mettrons en œuvre au Mali. L’originalité de notre projet réside donc dans la combinaison d’études qualitatives et quantitatives appliquées à des terrains d’études communs. Cette approche mixte est possible par la collaboration fructueuse existant entre des chercheurs économistes de DIAL, des chercheurs en sociologie et sociologie politique basés en France (CMH et IRIS) et en Italie (FIERI), et l’Institut malien de la statistique (INSTAT). Le projet se compose de quatre parties. Premièrement, nous étudierons d’un point de vue historique et sociologique le transnationalisme politique entre la France, l’Italie, le Sénégal et le Mali. Nous proposons également un suivi des campagnes électorales de 2012 au Sénégal et au Mali, de manière à identifier les interactions entre les partis politiques de ces pays et leurs ressortissants basés en France et en Italie. Deuxièmement, nous analyserons l’implication politique et associative des migrants, ainsi que leur capacité à transférer des normes démocratiques dans leurs pays d’origine. Nous analyserons des données existantes (notamment l’enquête Teo, Insee, 2008) pour identifier de manière quantitative implication politique des migrants sénégalais et maliens.Une analyse qualitative fondée sur des entretiens de migrants complétera cette étude. Par ailleurs, à l’approche de l’élection présidentielle malienne de 2012, nous mettrons en œuvre une expérimentation auprès des migrants maliens résidant en France afin d’identifier si ces derniers transfèrent des normes en matière politique à leurs familles et villages d’origine. En troisième lieu, les interactions entre la migration et le fonctionnement politique du pays d’origine seront étudiées. Nous examinerons dans quelle mesure les financements des migrants sont influencés par les résultats électoraux. De même, nous étudierons si les migrants financent des biens publics particuliers ou s’ils permettent une allocation différente de ces derniers. Ce travail sera mené sur un panel représentatif de communes maliennes et enrichi par les études de cas. Enfin, en quatrième point nous analyserons l’impact de la migration sur la composition des élites locales. Cela nous permettra de comprendre dans quelle mesure l’expérience migratoire permet aux migrants de retour ou aux membres de leurs familles de participer à des instances décisionnelles locales, voire nationales. Pour ce faire, nous procéderons à des entretiens auprès d’élus, ainsi qu’à l’analyse empirique de données d’enquête individuelles maliennes.
