A content analysis of media reports on the Indian community in Finland

Authors Liina MUSTONEN
Description
The report analyses the media representation of Indian community resident in Finland. The four major Finnish newspapers were analysed during the period between 2012 and 2015. In comparison with many other European countries with larger migrant communities, the Indian community in Finland is small. Although specific reporting on ethnic communities is limited in the Finnish press, interesting insights on the media representation of the Indian community can be drawn from the data. The research concludes that reports on business relations and Finnish companies' operations in India, mostly concerning Nokia's failures in India, are often portrayed in a negative light. India is considered as a difficult business environment and culturalist explanations dominate over others. At the same time the reporting recognizes the opportunities that India's new rising market can offer to Finnish companies. In turn, residents with Indian origin in Finland are portrayed as hard-working and important part of the economy in Finland. Indian culture understood as art is also seen as an enriching addition to the Finnish culture. However, occasional notions in the Finnish press point to the idea of a 'Finn' as a somewhat closed category : a migrant becomes Finn, or resembles a Finn instead of 'Finnishness' becoming more inclusive. Similarly the press sometimes gives an essentialized representation of gender roles among the Indian community in Finland without giving a voice to the immigrant community that is being essentialized.

Portugal country report : content analysis media reports on the Indian community in the EU

Authors Noelle RICHARDSON
Description
This paper seeks to outline and assess the media portrayal of Indian nationals and People of Indian Origin (PIOs) in Portugal. The press material analyzed, which consists of press reports and published news articles, are derived from six national newspapers and the national news agency, the press sections of the biggest public broadcasting organization and a major radio station. In keeping with what is reflected in this material, there is a distinct emphasis on media reports focusing primarily on business ties and investment opportunities between India and Portugal, crimes committed by Indian nationals or PIOs, Indian cultural influences and events, as well as integration initiatives for Indian immigrants, particularly those of a linguistic nature. There are also brief sections regarding the labour market insertion of Indian nationals or PIOs, religion and education. Furthermore, given Portugalメs historical ties with Goa and its colonial link, there is a special focus on the Goan community resident in Portugal, the enduring ムLuso-Goanメ link and the Portuguese influence on Goan culture and vice versa.

Media portrayals of the Indian community in the UK

Authors Neha SINHA
Description
Through an analysis of 300 news articles, this report is an attempt at measuring and understanding the portrayal of the Indian community in the UK through a media content analysis of the articles published in the UK press. It contains an overview of the media themes ranging from business and investments to the education and labour market integration of Indian immigrants. Other issues addressed are integration, cultural aspects, crime reporting and religion. This analysis of the UK media's portrayal of the Indian community shows that media has mostly focused on culture, religion,integration and business issues. Furthermore, on some topics, there is definitely a divide in treatment between broadsheet and tabloid newspapers, ranging from positive potrayal of the Indian community to extremely biased reportage related to some specific issues.

Portrayals of Indian immigrants in the Greek media

Authors Despina KARAMPERIDOU
Description
This paper investigates the representation of Indian immigrants as reflected in Greek newspapers and news blogs. The paper is part of a larger project on the media representation of Indian migrant communities in EU member-states aimed at informing integrative migration policy at the national and supranational level. Methodologically, qualitative content analysis has been employed to guide data systematisation and processing. Empirical investigation reveals that portrayals of immigrants vary according to news outlets' ideological inclinations and political orientation. Portrayals also vary depending on the specific issue at hand. In general, media portrayals of Indian immigrants, whether positive or negative, are determined by the interaction of factors that are both exogenous and endogenous to the migrant community. Regarding exogenous factors, emphasis is placed on the unfolding Greek crisis and how it influences media tonality on Indian migration issues.

Report on the media representation of the Indian community in Cyprus : a case of invisibility

Authors Vera PAVLOU
Description
This report gives an overview of the depiction of the Indian community in Cyprus based on qualitative content analysis in local media. The themes discussed are education, business and investment activities, the insertion and experiences of Indian nationals in the labour market, culture, gender relations and integration initiatives. The analysis is based on a selection of articles published between April 2012 and April 2015 in Cypriot online and printed newspapers, news portals and blogs. A theme that emerges from the analysis is that of the invisibility of the local Indian community in Cypriot media. The analysis shows that local media demonstrates a very limited interest in the Indian community and Indian culture(s) as part of Cypriot society. The Indian community in Cyprus is not particularly numerous, nor consolidated and this explains, to a certain extent, why there are not many explicit references to the community in the local media. Another reason for the partial invisibility of the Indian community is the general lack of debate and engagement of the local media with migrant communities in Cyprus.

What are we Implementing? Ethnicity, Gender and Sexuality in Swedish Labour Market and Integration Policies

Principal investigator Jennie K. Larsson (REMESO Project Leader), Peo Hansen (Scientifically Responsible)
Description
The study focus on the role of the civil servants in the implementation process of social policies. The projects purpose is to study Swedish integration and labour market policies. Issues of how race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class are done in the meeting between civil servants and their clients are often absent in research on public administration. The study focuses on, from a race/ethnicity, gender, class and sexuality perspective, how labour market establishment of newly arrived Swedes are made. Empirically, the material will be gathered at institutions that are responsible for the integration of newly arrived immigrants, i.e. employment offices. The project has an intersectional approach and is theoretically framed within gender studies and ethnicity studies. The study also takes it theoretical point of departure in welfare state research and public administration studies. The methods used are participant observation, in-depth interviews and discourse analysis.

'Sexual Integration': Sexuality in Global Migration

Principal investigator Kristine Køhler Mortensen (Project Leader)
Description
The focus of the project is to study recently introduced compulsory teaching of asylum seekers in 'Danish sexual morals' with the aim of unveiling the ways in which sexual behavior is being attached to culture and nationality and how specific conceptions of intimacy come to be understood as crucial and decisive for the integration in a late modern Western society. The project is designed as a two-part analysis combining both text-based discourse analysis and practice-oriented ethnography. The first comprises a corpus-assisted critical discourse text analysis of the mass media debate, policy documents, and teaching materials, which will flesh out the ideological underpinnings of the requirement for sexual education of asylum seekers. The second part investigates concrete practices through a four month ethnographic study at an asylum center (including participant observation of teachers' practices and students' reception together with in-depth interviews).

Media Content

Authors Samuel BENNETT, Jessika TER WAL, Artur LIPINSKI, ...
Description
Content and discourse analysis of media coverage about migration and migrants in European societies reveals that the representation of third country nationals (TCNs), i.e. ‘new’, first generation migrants without nationality of the EU Member States, in the 2000s is still problematic. This finding, based on a review of over 150 publications in five languages, and on 68 interviews with media professionals in six EU Member States, is shown through the predominance of negative and stereotypical portrayal, the negative themes often associated with migrants, and the lack of participation by TCNs in the definition of news and news agendas. These general findings can be differentiated for specific national contexts, media types, types of coverage, and migrant groups. The questions raised relate to selection of news themes and frames, the preferred genres for reporting or programming, the definition of news and main news actors, the sources used and quoted, the labels, the group categorisations, evaluations, news frames and discourse elements such as topoi used in media contents. These elements together are the building blocks for media portrayal of migrant groups that ultimately contribute to the perception of migrants and migrant issues in the public sphere. Besides providing a detailed analysis of relevant research findings and fieldwork, explanations, remedies and positive examples provided therein are also discussed in this report.

TRANS-NET

Description
The objective of this project is to clarify and compare the complex process of transnationalism. During the past few years, transnationalism has attained ever greater importance and topicality due to the increase in transnational mobility of people. In order to attain a comprehensive and valid insight into the topic in question we adopt a multilevel approach. The research conducted in Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, India, Morocco, Turkey, and the United Kingdom addresses both policy documents and individual migrants, including labour migrants; posted workers; family-based migrants; humanitarian migrants, and foreign degree students. The focus lies on their transnational networks and political, economic, and socio-cultural activities. Moreover, the topic of transnational empowering is of central importance. The following transnational spaces will be taken as the main units to analyse the border-crossing relationships: Estonia/Finland, India/UK, Morocco/France, and Turkey/Germany. Research data will be gathered through content analysis of policy documents and semi-structured and life-course interviews among a selected sample of respondents in each participating country.

Local initiatives for integration through intercultural bridge building

Principal investigator Thomas Jordan (Project Leader), Pia Andersson (Participants ), Björn Andersson (Participants)
Description
The purpose of the project is to develop knowledge about initiatives in Swedish metropolitan suburbs that aim at facilitating integration of extra-European immigrants. The study focusses the theories of change that explicitly or implicitly form the basis of projects or regular operations which use dialogue or competence development methods in order to bridge gaps in worldviews and norms, support relevant knowledge acquisition and understanding and facilitate empowerment. The approach of the study is based on program theory, discourse analysis and narrative analysis with a focus on elucidating and critically analysing the theories of change that underlie integration projects in the field. In the first phase of the study, an inventory is made of projects that fit the profile described above. 5-6 projects or regular operations are selected for a more thorough analysis. In the second phase we will develop analytical descriptions of the theories of change of each project, based on the actual activities and the articulated strategies as they present themselves in documents and interviews. We will also interview participants in the initiatives. In the third phase a comparative analysis is made of the theories of change, both in relation to each other and in relation to the different perspectives represented in academic research and public debate about integration. The fourth phase comprise reporting the findings, both in the form of a scientific article and as a more popular study adapted to practitioners.

Role of European Mobility and its Impacts in Narratives, Debates and EU Reforms

Description
This project explores the economic, social, institutional and policy factors that have shaped the impacts of free movement in the EU and public debates about it. The project has three goals. First, to generate a deeper understanding of the nature and impacts of intra-EU mobility, focusing in particular on how countries’ institutional and policy environments shape the impacts of free movement on individuals, households, labour markets, public services and public finances. Second, to assess how political and media narratives about intra-EU mobility are formed, focusing on the role of traditional and social media, political discourse, and influential participants in public debates. Third, to evaluate the relationship between real and perceived impacts, examining the factors that drive realities and misperceptions about free movement and why these debates have unfolded in different ways across the EU. Research methods range from content analysis based on machine-learning techniques to multi-wave panel and survey experiments to theoretical and empirical analysis of the role of institutions and norms in shaping free movement and public debates about it.

Crossing the Mediterranean Sea by boat

Principal investigator Angeliki Dimitriadi (PI)
Description
Crossing the Mediterranean Sea by Boat is an international project comprised of researchers at the University of Warwick, University of Malta, and the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP, Athens). The research team has carried out 257 in-depth qualitative interviews with a total of 271 participants across seven sites in two phases: Kos, Malta and Sicily from September-November 2015, and Athens, Berlin, Istanbul and Rome from May-July 2016. Additional interviews were carried out in Malta until March 2016. Uniquely, the project focuses directly on the impact of policies upon people on the move, drawing together policy analysis and observational fieldwork with an in-depth analysis of qualitative interview data with people making – or contemplating making – the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean Sea. As such, the project provides previously-unconsidered insights into the effects of policy on the journeys, experiences, understandings, expectations, concerns and demands of people on the move.

Virtualisation of cross border labour mobility? Changing patterns of cross border personnel mobility as coordination mechanism in profit- and non-profit-organisations in Mexico and Germany

Principal investigator Ludger Pries (Principal Investigator), Christel Adick (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Coordination of activities is of crucial importance for organisations working with locally distributed units in different countries. Besides bureaucratic controlling, general norm setting or defining selective incentives, the mobility of personnel is an important but cost intensive mechanism of this cross-border coordination. The objective of the current research project is to analyse the patterns of cross-border personnel mobility and possible changes of these patterns as e.g., a possible virtualisation of cross-border coordination and personnel mobility. The analysis will take part by drawing upon a case study design. Profit and Non-Profit Organisations with locations in Germany and Mexico will be compared. The project is carried out by an interdisciplinary and international research consortium. The participants are German and Mexican researchers in the areas of economics, social sciences as well as comparative educational research. Central Research Questions: Which patterns of personnel mobility are observable in German- and Mexican-based Non-Profit compared to Profit Organisations? Which factors do influence the patterns of cross-border personnel mobility as well as virtual forms of cross-border coordination of organisations? In how far do these patterns change over time? Of which significance are virtual forms of cross-border coordination? Methodology: The design and methodology follow a double approach of hypothesis testing and of generating an explanatory model. Influencing factors of patterns of cross border personnel mobility and possible changes of the same will be evaluated on basis of a comparative case study design. Main axes of comparison are cross-border Profit and Non-Profit Organisations, countries of headquarters and of activities, contingent situation of organisations as well as the institutional embedding of local centers. The methods concentrate on ego-centred and organisational network analysis, content analysis of documents and structured interviews."

Image of Immigrants in Media: Thought- provoking Effects

Principal investigator Leen d'Haenens (Coordonator), Rozane De Cock (Partner), Koen Matthijs (Partner), Jacinthe Mazzocchetti (Partner), François Heinderyckx (Partner), Kevin Smets (Partner)
Description
Governments, news media and public opinion in Europe are increasingly preoccupied with refugees seeking access to Western Europe. Public opinion is split (if not negative) and generally un- or misinformed (amalgamation across ‘groups’ being one of the problems), and integration policies cannot respond to the needs (see cross-country MIPEX results). This project aims to investigate the dynamic interplay between media representations of the current non-EU immigrant situation with a specific emphasis on the refugee situation on the one hand and the governmental and societal (re)actions on the other. The IM²MEDIATE project combines four complementary multi-stakeholder group perspectives: 1. Analysis of news media content and journalism culture. 2. Study of societal reactions of the general public. 3. Study of push/pull factors in migration from a refugee perspective. 4. Policy analysis into national governmental (re)actions. It is the project’s ultimate goal to inventory the multiple public, policy and media voices heard in Belgium on this crucial issue, while learning from practices abroad (with a focus on Sweden), and to formulate recommendations towards a more encouraging integration policy, while lowering anti-immigration and anti-refugee sentiment.

Crossing the Mediterranean Sea by Boat undertook 257 in-depth qualitative interviews with a total of 271 participants across seven sites in two phases: Kos, Malta and Sicily from September-November 2015, and Athens, Berlin, Istanbul and Rome from May-July 2016. Uniquely, the project focused directly on the impact of policies upon people on the move, drawing together policy analysis and observational fieldwork with in-depth analysis of qualitative interview data from people making – or contemplating making – the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean Sea. As such, the report provides previously-unconsidered insights into the effects of policy on the journeys, experiences, understandings, expectations, concerns and demands of people on the move. In addition to providing seven site-based case study analyses, the project also provides the first detailed assessment of policies associated with A European Agenda on Migration in terms of policy effects both across routes (eastern and central Mediterranean) and over time (2015 and 2016). The findings and analysis summarised in this report are presented with the aim of informing policy developments, moving forward.

Mass Media Influences on Anti-Immigrant Attitudes

Principal investigator Elmar Schlüter (Principal Investigator), Eldad Davidov (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Theoretical background and objectives The project investigates linkages between the political mobilisation of immigration issues and anti-immigrant sentiments among native populations by simultaneously examining the impact of immigrant group size, negative immigration-related news reports and their interaction on perceived group threat. Starting from a group threat perspective, the guiding hypothesis of the study is that an increase (decrease) in the frequency of negative mass media coverage of diversity-related issues will result in an increase (decrease) in individual anti-immigrant attitudes. In addition, we investigate whether media effects interact with immigrant group size, following the hypothesis that media framing has stronger effects where people have less direct experience with immigrants. While claims regarding such media effects are frequently made, they are rarely investigated because they require a combination of survey and media content data. In this project, such data are brought together for two countries, Spain and Germany. Research design, data and methodology The analysis for Spain uses cross-sectional survey data for the period 1996 to 2007, enriched with regional statistics on immigrant group size. These are linked to data drawn from a longitudinal content analysis of newspaper reports and analysed using multilevel linear regression. The German study will improve further upon existing work by a) capturing a wider range of news sources (including newspaper and television reports), b) more precisely assessing the valence of immigration-related mass media coverage (in terms of positive, neutral and negative evaluations of immigration related issues) and c) relating these measures to the dynamic formation of anti-immigrant attitudes using growth curve models over four measurement points (2002, 2003, 2004 and 2006). This research will rank among the first studies which – from a multilevel point of view – deliver quasi-experimental evidence that the mass media are an important factor in shaping anti-immigrant attitudes and policy preferences. Findings The Spanish study has already been completed; the German one will follow in 2011. Findings for Spain show that a greater salience of negative immigration-related news reports increases perceived group threat over and above the influence of immigrant group size. Additionally, the impact of negative immigration-related news reports on perceived group threat is amplified (weakened) in regions with a smaller (larger) immigrant group size. Collectively, these results testify to the importance of immigrant group size and negative immigration-related news reports as key contextual sources of perceived group threat among host society members."

Przejścia młodych z edukacji na rodzimy i zagraniczny rynek pracy: rola lokalności, grupy rówieśniczej i nowych mediów

Principal investigator Izabela Grabowska-Lusińska (Principal Investigator)
Description
Objectives: (1) To explore the role of place of living (locality) in school-to-work transitions to the domestic and foreign labour market by both young females and males; (2) To investigate the roles of parents and relatives in school-to-work transitions to both domestic and foreign labour market of young females and males; (3) To study the role of a peer group in school-to-work transitions to the domestic and the foreign labour market of young females and males; (4) To explore the role of new media and acquaintances connected to them in school-to-work transitions to both domestic and foreign labour market of young females and males; (5) To study how much youngsters use knowledge and skills obtained during education in the labour market and how they use experience acquired abroad after return to Poland. What we already know: The school-to-work (also abroad) transition is not a single event. It is a life phase which can last few years and can consist of various, also temporary jobs with. differentiated content. This is the time in the biographies of youngsters to make up their minds and make decisions for the future occupational paths. After EU enlargement in May 2004, one in three Polish youngsters from small towns and villages had their first jobs abroad. As main reasons they usually indicated financial motivations but in-depth studies uncovered that transiting from Polish education to the foreign labour market means also: firm leaving parental home, self-responsibility, ‘taking life in own hands’, ‘building up self-esteem’. Travels abroad are also for a life style connected to the way of living in multicultural metropolises. This is also a kind of an escape from the local constraining nexus: educationjob-marriage-kid-mortgage. Methodology: The core of the project is a peer group mapped and selected in localities in Poland with different social and economic backgrounds, such as: migration history, postcommunism transition, local labour market etc. Members of selected peer-groups will be monitored throughout the course of three years, in the interludes of 12 months (panel study). We will select 10 peer groups in three selected localities which at the end will give roughly of 320 in-depth interviews in total. The project will also take a social photography of places of living (localities) of youngsters. This social photography will be textured with observations of places where youngsters spend free time, talks with parents, local informants such as school teachers, people from local labour offices, people running clubs and other institutions where youngsters go and content analysis of new media such as: Facebook, blogs, professional portals etc. What the project can offer: Between the waves of talks with youngsters from the selected peer groups, the project will offer free of charge, voluntary coaching and job counselling in the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (University SWPS). The project will give also future opportunities to the youngsters to get involved in the Youth in Centre just established at University SWPS, for instance through participating in Youth Advisory Boards which will be set up to advice youth studies undertaken by the Centre. Originality: Researching the school-to- domestic and- foreign labour market transitions of youngsters through the eyes of members of peer groups who are both movers and stayers.

Integration Requirements and Citizenship Tests

Principal investigator Ines Michalowski (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Theoretical background and objectives This project looks at the recent development of integration requirements as a condition for immigration, residence or citizenship. These integration requirements usually comprise knowledge of the host country's language, democracy, history, geography, and society. Proponents argue that they are a necessary and legitimate way for liberal democracies to defend their principles and rally new citizens behind them and that states, even though this may seem rather paternalistic, should help immigrants improve their human capital and become more competitive on the labour market. Opponents on the other hand argue that these policy measures create unnecessary conflicts by excluding immigrants who do not fulfil these requirements and by applying criteria that are at odds with political liberalism. While the opponents of the tests and integration requirements criticise that they oblige immigrants to adopt certain cultural traits of the host society, proponents argue that they do not oblige anybody to give up his or her identity and that the tests are above all capacity-enhancing. The project contributes to this debate by applying a systematic content analysis to citizenship tests in Germany, the UK, the US, the Netherlands, and Austria as well as to curricula for civic education courses addressed to immigrants who want to become permanent residents in Germany, France and the Netherlands. The objective is to find out what the content of these integration requirements and more particularly of the civic education component of these requirements really is. Can these citizenship tests and civic education curricula be classified as an attempt at cultural assimilation or do they stay within the confines of procedural liberalism? Research design, data and methodology The data used for this study are citizenship test questions or detailed guidelines for these tests that have been made publicly available in the countries compared, as well as curricula and learning materials for civic education courses targeted at immigrants who want to become permanent residents. While France is part of the second sample of countries, it is not part of the first one because it does not have an established citizenship test comparable to those in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, the UK and the US. All questions and answers were systematically content-coded by attributing every question and (if public) correct answer to particular themes (e.g., democracy, history, cultural norms) and normative categories (distinguishing formal questions about legal rules pertaining to ""what is right"" from questions about cultural customs and social norms referring to ""what is good""). The content of the civic education courses has similarly been analysed with regard to its thematic and normative content. Findings The analyses show that the content of the citizenship tests and civic education curricula in almost all countries corresponds to a Rawlsian definition of political liberalism (Rawls 1993), a finding that rebuts the thesis of citizenship tests and integration requirements as an instance of ""forced cultural assimilation"" (Orgad 2010). In addition, the research suggests that the content of citizenship tests and other integration requirements tells us more about the role that a certain state claims to have in the governance of cultural, ethnic and religious diversity than it actually tells us about how the population on the ground defines and understands notions of citizenship and national belonging."
