The Dynamics between Integration Policies and Outcomes: a Synthesis of the Literature

Authors Özge Bilgili, Thomas Huddleston, Anne-Linde Joki, ...
Description
This paper reviews the comparative multi-level quantitative research on the links between integration policies, the integration situation of immigrants and a wide range of individual and contextual factors. Twenty-one reviewed studies and additional supporting articles indicate that a number of individual and contextual variables explain most of the variation between countries in terms of immigrants’ labour market integration, educational attainment, naturalisation and political participation. Thanks to the use of MIPEX and similar indices, some evidence is emerging that certain integration policies can be related to the specific integration outcomes that they aim to address. So far, only certain general and targeted employment policies can be directly associated with better labour market outcomes for immigrants and a lower incidence of employment discrimination. More indirectly, facilitating naturalisation, a secure residence and a secure family life seems to have positive effects on boosting labour market outcomes for certain immigrants. In the area of employment, studies rarely focus on a specific policy or properly match it to its specific intended target group and outcome. In the area of education, the inclusiveness of the school and education system seems to matter most for immigrant and non-immigrant pupils. Although targeted immigrant education policies adopted at national level do not display consistent results across countries in terms of pupils’ tests scores, most studies conclude that inclusive schools and education systems are more successful when they also target the specific needs of immigrant pupils. Several studies on the acquisition of nationality find that naturalisation policies are perhaps the strongest determinant of the naturalisation rates for immigrants from developing countries. Further research can explore which specific elements of naturalisation policies most help or hinder naturalisation. The few studies on political participation find that targeted policies and the acquisition of nationality may boost participation rates for certain immigrant groups. The fact that studies find no link between the general integration policy (i.e. MIPEX overall score) and a specific labour market outcome (i.e. employment rates for foreign-born) does mean that no causal relationship exist between integration policies and outcomes across countries. Considering that this multi-level research is still in infancy, studies have great room for improvement in terms of their use of databases and methodological tools. A more robust methodological approach using new international datasets can better explore the nuanced links between policies and societal outcomes. Future research needs to pay greater attention to linking a specific integration policy with its actual target group and target outcomes. Studies must also take into account time-sensitive contextual factors and general policies. International surveys can improve their measurement of integration policy outcomes in terms of longterm residence, family reunification, anti-discrimination, language learning, and, to some extent, political participation.

Advancing knowledge on international migration : data and research needs

Authors Philippe FARGUES
Description
From the sheer numbers of migrants to the complex processes that set people on the move and the multiple changes they bring to both origin and destination countries, international migration suffers considerable deficits of knowledge. As international migration connects each country of the world with all the others, addressing knowledge gaps will require international consensus on definitions and methods of data collection. There is a long way to go before this most challenging objective will be reached. The current study describes some of the steps that need to be taken. Defining international migration A proper assessment of international migration data at the world level must be based on a systematic inventory of what exists and what does not in each country. For lack of such an inventory, this report provides an overview assessment of the various criteria used by public administrations to define and produce data on international migration. Documenting international migration Data are generally collected by national administrations to serve their own needs and not those of scientific research or evidence-based policymaking, with the result that data on international migration are too often insufficient and lacking in quality. Policymakers often lack the minimal statistical evidence necessary to make informed decisions, while academics lack the basic data needed for scientific research. This report identifies key issues that should be addressed to improve migration data for policymaking and scientific research. These include: disentangling migrants from travellers and differentiating between short-term mobility and migration; matching entry and exit data; counting emigrants, i.e. absent individuals; counting circular, seasonal and temporary migrants; and measuring irregular migration. These issues often require ad hoc measurement methods such as specialized surveys. Mapping research on international migration Research addresses the causes of international migration, the process of migration itself as well as its consequences; it does so in the countries of origin and destination, as well as in the transnational space spanning origin and destination. This paper outlines 7 priority areas for research on international migration: Determinants of migration in countries of origin; Pull factors in countries of destination; Linkages between countries of origin and destination; Migration stages; Emigrants, as actors of change in countries of origin; The inclusion of migrants and their contribution to development in destination countries; And finally, the global consequences of migration. Conclusions To significantly improve our understanding of international migration, including its multiple determinants, complex processes and diverse impacts, the following challenges need to be addressed: All countries should acknowledge that international migration is defined; by border crossing. Equating immigrants with foreign citizens confuses a geographic notion with a legal one and indirectly serves policies of exclusion; All countries should agree on producing population data by detailed country of birth using the same unified list of world countries; International organizations should make all possible efforts to extend the coverage of migration surveys to all the countries that host sizeable migrant populations in the Global North as well as in the Global South; The scientific community should organize itself at a global level to develop and disseminate methodologies to fill the huge knowledge gaps that are the result of the currently patchy, mostly administrative data.

CrossMigration

Principal investigator Peter Scholten (Project co-ordinator), Asya Pisarevskaya (Project manager), Nathan Levy (Project manager), Adham Aly (Project assistant)
Description
The Migration Research Hub supports the systematic accumulation of knowledge in migration studies. It aims to be the go-to resource for finding knowledge on migration, from the latest literature to the most appropriate topical experts. In the spirit of a collaborative approach to knowledge management in migration studies, researchers from all around the world are invited to contribute with their publications and expertise to further innovation in the field. The taxonomy of migration studies developed through this project allows everyone to identify opportunities for collaboration and new research projects across disciplines and geographies. The systematic approach to data collection and knowledge accumulation promotes and facilitates dialogue between researchers and policy stakeholders, and raises awareness of the latest debates and the most current and emerging questions about migration. The Migration Research hub was built during the IMISCOE-led Horizon 2020 project, CrossMigration (2018-2020). See a list of the team members below. The project is now fully integrated into and maintained by IMISCOE.

Nachwuchsgruppe ›Die wissenschaftliche Produktion von Wissen über Migration‹

Principal investigator Isabella Löhr (Principal Investigator), Christiane Reinecke (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Die Nachwuchsgruppe analysiert die Bedingungen und Folgen der wissenschaftlichen Produktion von Wissen über Migration. Im Zentrum der gemeinsamen Arbeit stehen die Praktiken der Produktion und Zirkulation von Wissen über die räumliche Bewegung von Menschen, die jeweils an der Schnittstelle von Wissenschaft und Politik, Verwaltung und Gesellschaft untersucht werden. Mit der Nachwuchsgruppe wollen wir zu einem vertieften Verständnis von gesellschaftlichen Selbstverständigungsprozessen und Praktiken im Umgang mit Migration und Differenz beitragen und reflexive Perspektiven für die historische, sozial- und kulturwissenschaftliche Migrationsforschung erarbeiten. Der oftmals aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen gespeisten Auseinandersetzung mit der räumlichen Bewegung von Menschen versuchen wir durch ein transdisziplinäres, dialogintensives und kooperatives Arbeiten gerecht zu werden. Konzeptionell beruht die Arbeit der Nachwuchsgruppe auf drei Säulen: Erstens begreifen wir die Produktion und Zirkulation von Migrations- und Mobilitätswissen als einen transnationalen, von Verflechtungen und Übersetzungen geprägten Prozess, der zwar in national verfasste Öffentlichkeiten und Wissenschaftslandschaften eingelassen ist, der wesentliche Impulse aber von transnational agierenden Akteuren und Institutionen erhält. Zweitens arbeiten wir mit einer historisch-kritischen Perspektive auf Ordnungskategorien, Begriffe und Daten, die den Umgang mit Migration und Mobilität prägen. Auf diese Weise können wir aktuellen Problematisierungen historische Tiefenschärfe verleihen, sie denaturalisieren und gesellschaftstheoretisch reflektieren. Drittens orientieren wir uns an einer praxeologischen Vorgehensweise. Dazu greifen wir Anregungen aus der neueren Wissens- und Wissenschaftsforschung auf und untersuchen die Produktion von Migrationswissen als einen situierten, in spezifische Praktiken, Netzwerke und Institutionen eingelassenen Prozess, der sich im Austausch mit anderen Feldern und außerwissenschaftlichen Akteuren vollzieht."

Promoting Comparative Quantitative Research in Europe

Description
PROMINSTAT is a research project funded under the 6th Framework Programme. It compiles meta-information on statistical datasets on migration, integration and discrimination in 29 European Countries (EU27 plus Norway and Switzerland). Through country reports and a series of comparative studies on particular topics of datacollection PROMINSTAT provides in-depth analyses of the scope, quality and comparability of statistical data collection on migration in a wide range of thematic fields, including population stocks and general demographic characteristics, migration flows, residence permits, acquisition and loss of citizenship, asylum seekers and refugees, irregular migration, employment, income, transfers and social benefits, housing and residental patterns, health and access to healthcare, education, family and household, political participation and crime and justice. The main aim of PROMINSTAT is to promote comparative quantitative research on migration, integration and discrimination in Europe, to enhance the knowledge base on statistical data collection in this field and thus to contribute to the improvement of statistics on migration, integration and discrimination.

Cross-Migration ‘Current European and Cross-National Comparative Research and Research Actions on Migration’

Principal investigator Frank Düvell (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Inhalt und Fragestellung Migration und die Charakteristika, die deren Parameter konstituieren, sowie die Dynamiken und Komplexitäten stellen eine der vorrangigen Herausforderungen in Europa dar. Unter diesen Umständen besteht die Notwendigkeit, für die Gestaltung von effizienter und konstruktiver Politik relevantes, präzises und nützliches Wissen zur Verfügung zu haben. Auch wenn einige Datenbasen wie etwa Eurostat und OECD wertvolle Einblicke in diese migratorischen Dynamiken bieten, so existiert doch keine effiziente und integrierte Datenbasis in Europa, welche die enorm vielfältigen Untersuchungen von Migration auflistet, synthetisiert und kategorisiert. Dieses Projekt bringt deshalb 16 führende Forschungsinstitute überwiegend aus dem IMISCOE Netzwerk (International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion) (vormals ein EU-gefördertes Network of Exellence) und politische Institute sowie internationale Organisationen zusammen mit dem Ziel, diese Lücke sachkundig zu füllen und einen zentralen Knotenpunkt (‘Hub’) zu schaffen. Dieser Knotenpunkt wird aufgrund seiner Fähigkeit, eine Grammatik für das Design von gegenwärtiger und zukünftiger Politik bereitzustellen, von instrumentellem Wert sein. Im Wesentlichen wird er vergangene, gegenwärtige und zukünftige Migrationsforschung akkumulieren und konsolidieren, indem er einen extensiven und bündigen Überblick über Triebkräfte von Migration, Infrastrukturen (Routen, Drehscheiben, Transportunternehmen/Dienstleister/Schmuggler, Netzwerke, soziale Medien), Flüsse und Politiken zur Verfügung stellt und ein Klassifikationssystem der Forschung entwickelt. Dies erlaubt es dann auch, zu einem systematischen Verständnis der Faktoren zu kommen, die die Interaktionen zwischen diesen analytischen Kategorien darstellen. Die Akkumulation, Integration und Zugänglichkeit von Forschung in einem solchen Knotenpunkt wird ein integrales Element zur Verbesserung von Politikgestaltung sein, insofern er alle relevanten Daten konzentriert und visualisiert und dadurch die Informationsbeschaffung zur Verfolgung politischer Ziele fördert. Deshalb ist auch ein kontinuierlicher Dialog von Forschung und Politik zentral für die Erstellung des Knotenpunktes. Dies setzt Nutzer in die Position, Szenarien zukünftiger Migrationen zu entwickeln. Schließlich zielt das Projekt – vom Design her ist es als Kollaborations- und Unterstützungsprojekt ausgelegt – darauf ab, in enger Zusammenarbeit mit der EU-Kommission Wissenslücken, Überschneidungen und Querverbindungen in der Forschung auszumachen und im Ergebnis zur Formulierung zukünftiger Migrationsforschungsagendas beizutragen. Methoden Das Projekt basiert auf Desk Research, der Entwicklung induktiver und deduktiver Forschungsfragen, einer computer-gestützten Erhebung der Migrationsforschung der vergangenen 10 Jahre sowie deren Auswertung durch die Experten des Forschungskonsortiums und einem Forschungs-Politikdialog."

The Integrationist Paradigm: Discourses on Immigrant Integration Across Policy and Research

Principal investigator Iva Dodevska (Principal Investigator)
Description
This project examines the knowledge production on immigrant integration across research and policy in the European context. Two case studies (one national – the UK, and one supranational – the EU) of political and policy discourses on integration are investigated in their interrelations with academic discourses in elite migration and integration academic publications in order to unpack the coproduction, between policy and research, of the integrationist paradigm in Europe. Key questions are how “integration” is imagined by various social actors, how it produces migrant subjectivities and what is the role of epistemic communities in the politicization of diversity. Interested primarily in integrationism as a technique of power, the project takes a decolonial and genealogical approach that situates integrationist discourses within wider systems of hierarchy, notably the racial order, patriarchy and capitalism. The aim is to understand how the politics of integration research and the scientific claims in “evidence-based” policy intersect to produce integrationism as the only legitimate mode of managing migration-related diversity.

Migration and Democratic Diffusion: Comparing the Impact of Migration on Democratic Participation and Processes in Countries of Origin

Description
The objective of this project is to unravel the impact of migration on democratic participation and processes in countries of origin. Both international migration and democratic development are important contemporary public and policy concerns. Recent studies of transnational migrant practices have uncovered how migrants influence democratic participation in their homelands through the remittance of money and newfound ideas about democracy from afar or through return. Yet, there is still little comparative knowledge of how these processes intersect with broader economic, social and political transformations in countries of origin. Moreover, complex migration experiences and nonlinear processes of democratization in countries of origin point to the need for a more nuanced conceptualization of what kind of political ideas circulate and are negotiated among migrants, return migrants and non-migrants in countries of origin. The proposed project outlines an ambitious long-term comparative research strategy to analyse and theorize the scope and dynamics of processes of democratic diffusion through migration. The research strategy of the project is innovative in combining analysis of democratic diffusion across three countries of origin and at three levels of democratic participation and processes: individual citizens, civil society and among political leaders and representatives. To that end the project draws on both statistical and qualitative research methods and analysis. The project will analyse already existing aggregate data on remittances and political behaviour and, importantly, generate new comprehensive datasets based on surveys and in-depth qualitative research among non-migrants and returnees in countries of origin. Consequently, the project will contribute to our theoretical understanding of the conditions under which migration can influence democratic processes as well as the broader research fields of democracy studies, migration and citizenship.

Circular migration in Georgia

Authors Mirian TUKHASHVILI
Description
A critical limitation in addressing circular migration trends and characteristics of circular migration from Georgia is the lack of appropriate statistics to quantitatively measure and assess the phenomenon. The current system in this respect is disastrous. In Georgia, even the balance of external migration cannot be established, there are practically no statistical data as regards territorial population mobility. In this regard, the immediate substantial reform of the official migration statistics and its provision with respective resources is indispensable. On the other hand, migration research in general, including research on circular migration, requires significant development. It needs to acquire a systemic nature, as the existing incidental studies are fragmented and completely inadequate compared to the significance of the problem. Given the current situation, this note will first address the importance of developing and supporting circular migration schemes for Georgia. Second, it will offer a number of crucial measures to be inserted in rational and efficient circular migration policies.

Der Migrationshintergrund: Herstellung und gesellschaftliche Realität einer wissenschaftlichen Kategorie

Principal investigator Anne-Kathrin Will (Principal Investigator)
Description
Im Jahr 2005 wurden 17 Fragen zur Migration in die deutsche Repräsentativstatistik, den Mikrozensus, aufgenommen. Die bis dahin existierende Unterscheidung in Deutsche und Ausländer hatte zunehmend durch die wachsenden Gruppen Spätaussiedler_innen, Eingebürgerte und in Deutschland geborene Ausländer_innen ihre Aussagekraft bezüglich Zuwanderung verloren. Aus den Fragen zur Migration wird der Migrationshintergrund abgeleitet. Sie machen auch Nachfahren von Eingewanderten in der Repräsentativstatistik sichtbar, so dass sie seitdem zu den Personen mit Migrationshintergrund zählen, selbst wenn sie mit deutscher Staatsangehörigkeit in Deutschland geboren sind.Bisher existieren kaum Studien, die sich mit der Einführung, Umsetzung und Folgen der neuen statistischen Kategorie beschäftigen. Ausnahmen bilden Untersuchungen zur Nutzung des Begriffs Migrationshintergrund im medialen Diskurs (Scarvaglieri/Zech 2013) und im Bundestag (Elrick/Schwartzman 2015). Zur Verbindung von statistischer Kategorie und Alltag liegt bisher nur eine (noch) unveröffentlichte Dissertation vor (Lang 2015, 2017). Ein aktueller Beitrag thematisiert das Missverhältnis zwischen statistischem und offenbarem Migrationshintergrund (Bednaschewsky/Supik 2018).Um die Lücke zu schließen, beschäftigt sich das Projekt mit der Einführung und Herstellung des Unterscheidungsmerkmals Migrationshintergrund und erkundet seine Auswirkungen im Alltag. Das Vorhaben lässt sich an der Schnittstelle von vier Forschungsfeldern verorten. Dazu gehören: 1) die ethnologische Beschäftigung mit Klassifikationssystemen, 2) wissensanthropologische und postkoloniale Untersuchungen zur Verbindung von Wissenschaft, Politik und Alltag, 3) Science and Technology Studies und 4) Forschungen zu nationalen und ethnischen Zugehörigkeiten. Diese vier theoretischen Bezüge sollen durch fünf empirische Zugänge miteinander in Beziehung gesetzt werden.Vorgesehen sind a) Feldforschungen in statistischen Ämtern als Produktionsstätten von Klassifikationen, b) Interviews mit Parlamentarier_innen, Verantwortlichen in Ministerien und statistischen Ämtern zur Entstehung und Weiterentwicklung der Mikrozensusfragen, c) Überblick über Definitionen des Migrationshintergrundes in ausgewählten wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen, d) mental maps zu deutscher Zugehörigkeit und Herkunft, e) Interviews mit in Deutschland Geborenen, die der sogenannten Zweiten oder Dritten Zuwanderungsgeneration zugerechnet werden sowie Personen ohne Migrationshintergrund.Die Ergebnisse werden auf einem Workshop mit Wissenschaftler_innen in und außerhalb von statistischen Ämtern diskutiert, die die Kategorie Migrationshintergrund nutzen, um die Auswirkungen von Wissenschaft im Alltag zu thematisieren. Hiermit soll insbesondere der Anspruch einer kritisch involvierten Ethnografie eingelöst und zu einer Entmigrantisierung der Migrationsforschung beigetragen werden, indem zu einer stärkeren Reflexion statistisch generierter Personenklassifikationen angeregt wird.

Bayesian Agent-based Population Studies: Transforming Simulation Models of Human Migration

Description
The aim of BAPS is to develop a ground-breaking simulation model of international migration, based on a population of intelligent, cognitive agents, their social networks and institutions, all interacting with one another. The project will transform the study of migration – one of the most uncertain population processes and a top-priority EU policy area – by offering a step change in the way it can be understood, predicted and managed. In this way, BAPS will effectively integrate behavioural and social theory with modelling. To develop micro-foundations for migration studies, model design will follow cutting-edge developments in demography, statistics, cognitive psychology and computer science. BAPS will also offer a pioneering environment for applying the findings in practice through a bespoke modelling language. Bayesian statistical principles will be used to design innovative computer experiments, and learn about modelling the simulated individuals and the way they make decisions. In BAPS, we will collate available information for migration models; build and test the simulations by applying experimental design principles to enhance our knowledge of migration processes; collect information on the underpinning decision-making mechanisms through psychological experiments; and design software for implementing Bayesian agent-based models in practice. The project will use various information sources to build models bottom-up, filling an important epistemological gap in demography. BAPS will be carried out by the Allianz European Demographer 2015, recognised as a leader in the field for methodological innovation, directing an interdisciplinary team with expertise in demography, agent-based models, statistical analysis of uncertainty, meta-cognition, and computer simulations. The project will open up exciting research possibilities beyond demography, and will generate both academic and practical impact, offering methodological advice for policy-relevant simulations.

Migrants hautement qualifiés et flux internationaux de talents, connaissances et capitaux

Principal investigator Ernest Miguelez (Principal Investigator)
Description
Highly Skilled Migration and International Flows of Talent, Knowledge, and Capital (TKC) is a project funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR). TKC aims to improve our understanding of whether and how highly skilled migrants activate their social networks and leverage their role as international knowledge gatekeepers, contribute to solve cross-border information problems, and transform the brain drain into brain gain and brain circulation. Highly skilled workers play a key role in today’s knowledge economies, as they introduce and diffuse innovations that encourage economic growth and well-being. Migrants are an essential component of these highly skilled workers worldwide: in 2013, the worldwide stock of migrants stood at 230 million, namely 3.2% of worldwide population (UN-DESA and OECD, 2013). However, important variations emerge across skills’ groups: tertiary educated immigrants living in OECD countries augmented by 70% during the 2000s, with just 10% for low-educated ones. Migration rates for the tertiary educated are higher than for the rest of the population, and generally increase with further education. Thus, differently from the past, highly skilled individuals represent the most dynamic component of international mobility flows. Far from taking place exclusively along a South-North or East-West axis, highly skilled migration occurs also between advanced economies, with the UK, Germany and other European countries as both destinations and origins. Science, technology, and engineering migration contributes heavily to these trends, including to its geographical variation. TKC’s research topic stands at the cross-roads of different disciplinary approaches, ranging from the geography of innovation, the economics of migration, and IB studies. All of them can be re-examined within the general theoretical framework of diaspora economics. Constant and Zimmermann (2016) define diasporas as “well-defined group(s) of migrants and their offspring with a joined cultural identity and ongoing identification with the country or culture of origin”, and propose to put them at centre-stage in all studies concerning migrations. While migration is the necessary precondition for diasporas to exist, not all migrant groups are internally bound by diasporic ties, nor ethnicity is the only source of such ties. In the case of highly skilled migrants, professional ties matter, too, as they both imply different migration channels and cohorts, and allows for specific forms of interaction. TKC is a theoretical and empirical project, whose deliverables will consist in research papers and open access datasets. Its ambition is to enrich the debate on migration on a global scale, but especially in Europe and France, where the dominant focus on low skilled or refugee immigration both obscures the importance of highly skilled flows and contributes to negative stereotyping. TKC will be articulated in six work-packages, taking a complementary approach between the macro (country), meso (firm), and micro (individual) levels of analysis. TKC has a strong engagement towards collecting micro-data concerning specific categories of very highly skilled workers, such as inventors, scientists and executives, with the migrant status to be ascertained by available biographic information and/or name analysis. These data may provide a suitable and interesting alternative to more classic data sources, both because of their detail and for their pointing at homogenous professional groups, rather than generically tertiary educated workers.

Promoting Comparative Quantitative Research in the Field of Migration and Integration in Europe

Description
With the Amsterdam Treaty and the increasing competence of the European Union in the field of migration, integration, anti-discrimination and asylum, the need for comparative data in this area has been increasingly recognised. The project compiles meta-information on statistical datasets on migration, integration and discrimination in 29 European countries (EU27 plus Norway and Switzerland). It builds on the earlier COMPSTAT project carried out under the 5th Framework Programme between 2001-2002, the FP6 project "Towards harmonised European Statistics on International Migration" (THESIM), completed in 2005 as well as ongoing research within the IMISCOE network. Objectives • To improve the quality of publicly available information on migration, integration and discrimination responding thus to the needs of researchers, policy makers and practitioners for more reliable, more systematic and more harmonized statistical data • To enhance comparability of statistical data and understanding of indicators Outcomes • Launch of a comprehensive online database containing descriptions of datasets relevant to the study of migration. • Analyses of the national data collection system in 29 European countries. • Detailed analysis of the availability, comparability, and the usability of statistical data in 12 thematic areas: 1) general demographic data; 2) migration flows; 3) legal status of immigrants; 4) citizenship; 5) political participation; 6) employment; 7) income 8) housing; 9) irregular migration; 10) education; 11) family and 12) health as well as in two cross-cutting thematic fields - integration and discrimination

Forschungsnetzwerk: Migration @ Gender in Niedersachsen

Principal investigator Helen Schwenken (Principal Investigator), Sabine Hess (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Am 29. Mai 2015 nahm das neu gegründete Forschungsnetzwerk ""Gender und Migration @Niedersachsen"" seine Arbeit auf. Etwa 30 Wissenschaftler_innen vor allem aus Niedersachsen waren zum Gründungstreffen an das Institut für Migrationsforschung und Interkulturelle Studien (IMIS) der Universität Osnabrück gekommen, um dort ihre Forschungsschwerpunkte vorzustellen und gemeinsame Vorhaben anzudenken. Das Netzwerk verfolgt das Ziel, die in Niedersachsen vorhandene transdisziplinäre Expertise in den Bereichen Gender- und Migrationsforschung zu bündeln. Insbesondere sollen die Erkenntnisse des jeweils anderen Felds für die eigene Forschung nutzbar gemacht werden. Die internationale Auftakt-Tagung ""Gendering Migration Studies - Geschlecht und die Politiken der Migration"" fand vom 11. bis 12. Dezember 2015 an der Universität Göttingen statt. Das Netzwerk ""Gender und Migartion[at]Niedersachsen"" wurde vom Göttinger Centrum für Geschlechterforschung (GCG) in Kooperation mit Wissenschaftlerinnen des Instituts für Migrationsforschung und Interkulturelle Studien (IMIS) der Universität Osnabrück sowie der HBK Braunschweig gegründet. Es wird aus Mitteln des Niedersächsischen Ministeriums für Wissenschaft und Kultur finanziert und künftig unter dem Dach der LAGEN tätig sein."
