From Kurdistan to Europe: Kurdish Literary, Artistic and Cultural Activism by Kurdish Women Intellectuals

Description
Kurdish women have been involved in film production, radio broadcasts and exhibitions, as well as in the production of a substantial number of books, journals and other publications in both Kurdish and national languages of the European states. However, the aesthetic and intellectual production of Kurdish women, which leads to the empowerment of women and advancement of gender equality in the Kurdish diaspora, has not been the subject of any notable research yet. By going beyond stereotypical portrayals of Kurdish women, presented as either victim of honour-based violence or someone who suffers violent conflict, this research will deal with the gendered experiences of Kurdish diaspora from the four regions of Kurdistan (Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey) in terms of the growth of aesthetic, literary and cultural practices by migrant Kurdish women in five nation-states (Belgium, France, Sweden, Germany, UK) along with their impacts on larger societal debates within a comparative approach. It will also investigate the varying migrant incorporation regimes of selected European countries, including the impacts of the recent influx of Syrian Kurdish refugees. It includes ethnographic fieldwork, along with multi-sited research techniques carried out in the capitals of selected European states, data collection of both primary sources (creative, literary and cultural productions) and secondary sources (EU documents, annual progress reports, press releases). This study has a potential to encourage the maximization of networks of educational and intellectual revitalization in European states. It will also encourage other Kurdish migrant women to become factors of change and reach others. This is an interdisciplinary project aiming to fill in a significant gap in the relevant socio-political, gender, migration and cultural academic studies and policy debates within the European Research Area. It is in line with the EC’s strategy for gender equality provision.

IAB-BAMF-SOEP Befragung von Geflüchteten

Principal investigator Herbert Brücker (Principal Investigator), Yuliya Kosyakova (Principal Investigator)
Description
"Die IAB-BAMF-SOEP Befragung von Geflüchteten ist ein Kooperationsprojekt zwischen dem IAB, dem SOEP am DIW Berlin und dem Forschungszentrum des Bundesamtes für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF-FZ). Sie enthält Informationen von Asylbewerberinnen und Asylbewerbern über ihre sozio-ökonomischen Eigenschaften, ihre Bildung, ihre Migrationsmotive und -wege, ihre Lebensumstände früher und heute und ihre Werte und Einstellungen. Die erste Welle wurde 2016 erhoben und enthält 4.816 erwachsene Geflüchtete, die seit 2013 in Deutschland angekommen sind. Die Stichprobe wurde aus dem Ausländerzentralregister (AZR) gezogen und ist repräsentativ für die Asylbewerber, die zwischen 1.1.2013 und 31.1.2016 eingereist sind und bis spätestens Ende Juni 2016 ihren Asylantrag gestellt haben. Asylbewerber mit höherer Bleibewahrscheinlichkeit zum Zeitpunkt der Stichprobenziehung wurden aufgrund des längsschnittlichen Designs überdurchschnittlich berücksichtigt (z.B. Afghanen, Iraker und Syrer). Zusätzlich wurden Frauen und Personen über 30 Jahren überrepräsentiert. Mit entsprechender Gewichtung können dennoch repräsentative Ergebnisse erzielt werden. Projekt 3530 is Nachfolgeprojekt von 1783 für weitere drei Jahre. Im Rahmen des Projekts wird eine repräsentative Panelbefragung von Asylbewerbern und Flüchtlingen in Deutschland durchgeführt. Dadurch werden erstmals umfassende Befragungsdaten über die soziale Situation dieser Bevölkerungsgruppen gewonnen und für die Arbeitsmarktpolitik und Forschung nutzbar gemacht. Projektziel Ziel ist der Aufbau einer Datengrundlage für die Flüchtlingsforschung, die breit angelegt ist und mit Hilfe derer sowohl für die Politikberatung als auch für die Forschung belastbare Ergebnisse erzielt werden können."

Gender, Migration and Intercultural Interactions in the Mediterranean and South East Europe: an interdisciplinary perspective

Description
Ge.M.IC will study “Cultural Interactions in a European Perspective” through a tripartite conceptual and methodological approach, whose aim will be to identify links between migration, gender and intercultural interaction, as it is in the meeting place of these three dimensions that some of the most important cultural developments in Europe take place. Ge.M.IC will approach these questions from a critical perspective emphasizing in particular the impact of migrant mobility and cultural diversity on gender relation in host, transit and sending societies. Research will be of an interdisciplinary nature in accordance with the broad range of expertise of the researchers collaborating in the project. The organization of work will reflect the inter-ethnic and interdisciplinary character of the consortium focusing both fieldwork and analysis on six thematic areas of study, rather than on national case studies: representations of national identity and the media, education, urban social spaces and movements, religion, violence, and the family. Ge.M.IC will generate new and important insights in these thematic areas, taking advantage of the diverse areas of expertise of different researchers and their mutual commitment to studying gender and addressing issues of gender equality as a central aspect of research.

Islam in the Making of a European Public Sphere

Description
During the last three decades, Islam has gained visibility in European public spheres through new religious symbols, but as well as new public figures, men and women, pious and secular who carry Islam in European public life. Islamic entry in the public sphere, and the claims for religious visibility provoke a series of debates on gender equality, freedom of expression and cultural (civilisational) differences in European publics. EUROPUBLICISLAM sets itself the intellectual research agenda of bringing together different fields of knowledge and analysis of the transformative forces that appear in the contemporary meeting of Islam and Europe. It proposes to develop an innovative understanding of the sporadic and at times violent ways in which Islam intervenes in the making of the European public sphere. EUROPUBLICISLAM engages with the European scholarly agenda on migration, the construction of a European public sphere, and Islam. It aims at shifting the contemporary theorization of Islam in Europe away from the integration and security paradigms, and towards a new theory of dynamics of interaction and mutual change. A new research field is marked out in combining and transforming the contemporary theorizations of European public sphere and European Islam. EUROPUBLICISLAM proposes to study religious symbols, artistic cultural productions and public figures affecting the everyday politics of cultural discord. It aims to re-conceptualize the place of Islam in the making of a European public sphere. An innovative methodology is proposed to study the constellations , the assemblages that bring together cultural differences in proximity and in confrontation across national public spheres, following a transnational dynamics. EUROPUBLICISLAM will thus contribute to the production of innovative research on the making and imaging a European public sphere where transformative cultural and aesthetic mixes and thus political pluralism are taking place.

Emigration from Palestine: a gender perspective

Authors Mustafa KHAWAJA
Description
Abstract Several factors make Palestine a case apart for the analysis and study of migration: a dependent state still under Israeli occupation; a dependent economy; no control over borders; the lack of sovereignty over land and natural resources; and the absence of detailed data on migration. Given these limitations, this note approaches several aspects of the gender dimension of migration from Palestine, by using a variety of sources, both national and international, in order to define the most comprehensive profile of Palestinian women on migration. As a whole, the propensity for Palestinians to emigrate has decreased in the last decades regardless of their level of education. However, the same analysis conducted according to sex, found evidence that highly-skilled women were more likely to emigrate than their male counterparts. As women are more likely to undertake tertiary education, and as, at the same time, socio-economic conditions do not improve, emigration is found to be a good (or necessary solution) in improving life conditions and trying to develop skills abroad. Indeed, the characteristics of women abroad are continually changing. Younger generations of Palestinian female emigrants tend to be better educated and tend too to participate more in the labor market of host countries. However, studying the link between gender and migration leads to a more comprehensive reflection on the cultural constraints faced by women in Palestinian society. Despite the disadvantaged position of women with respect to men in all labor-market indicators, the vast majority do not wish to migrate in order to stay with family or spouses. They often stop their education because ‘they want to remain at home in housekeeping’ or simply because ‘their family does not allow them to continue studying’. These patterns suggest that the cultural environment is an ‘obstacle’ for women, both in leaving the country, their family and their spouses and in entering the Palestinian labor market. To conclude, while the gender gap is declining in Palestinian life and while Palestinian women abroad are better and better educated and ever more present in the labor market, greater efforts must be made in order to attain gender equality in all aspects of life at home. Résumé L’absence d’un Etat indépendant - en reste de l’occupation israélienne, une économie tributaire, l’absence de contrôle aux frontières, de souveraineté sur ses territoire et ressources naturelles, de données détaillées et actualisées se rapportant au phénomène de la migration, pour ne citer que ces facteurs, demeurent des points de crispation dans le débat. Au regard de ces limites, cette note adopte une approche pragmatique des aspects relevant de la migration palestinienne fondée sur la dimension genre, sur la base d’un recueil de sources nationale et internationale, en vue ensemble d’établir une définition compréhensive du profil de la femme émigrante palestinienne. En général, la propension des Palestiniens à émigrer a significativement diminué au cours de ces dernières décennies aussi bien parmi les hommes que parmi les femmes, et peu important encore le niveau d’éducation. Toutefois, la même analyse menée en termes de sexe révèle une propension à émigrer plus élevée et croissante de femmes hautement qualifiées par comparaison avec la gente masculine. Alors que les femmes disposent davantage d’un niveau d’éducation supérieur, sans que les conditions socioéconomiques ne s’améliorent, l’émigration est accueillie comme une bonne voire nécessaire solution en vue à la fois d’améliorer leurs conditions de vie et de développer leurs compétences à l’étranger. En effet, les caractéristiques de l’émigrante palestinienne résidant à l’étranger tendent à se modifier sur une base continue. Les jeunes générations d’émigrées palestiniennes sont de plus en plus éduquées, et tendent à participer davantage au marché du travail au sein du pays de destination. Toutefois, l’analyse du lien existant entre femmes et migration impose une réflexion plus compréhensive intégrant les contraintes culturelles pesant sur les femmes appartenant à la société palestinienne. En dépit de leur position désavantagée marquée au regard de tous les indicateurs du marché de travail - par comparaison avec leurs homologues masculins, la majorité d’entre elles se refusent à émigrer en vue de rester avec la famille et l’époux. Elles arrêtent très souvent leurs études dans la mesure où “elles veulent rester à la maison et s’occuper du foyer” ou simplement parce que “leur famille refuse qu’elles poursuivent leurs études”. Ces caractéristiques sont le point de départ d’une réflexion à mener sur l’environnement culturel érigé comme “obstacle” aux femmes dans leur volonté à la fois d’émigrer, de quitter leur famille et leur époux, et d’intégrer le marché du travail au sein du pays d’origine. En conclusion, il convient de relever que, bien que le gender gap tend à s’atténuer dans une série de secteurs, et que les femmes résidant à l’étranger sont de plus en plus éduquées et investies dans le marché du travail au sein du pays d’accueil, reste que des efforts supplémentaires doivent être fournis en vue d’obtenir une équation équilibrée entre égalité des opportunités et égalité des genres dans tous les aspects de la vie dans le pays d’origine.

Gender politics and migration policies in Jordan

Authors Françoise DE BEL-AIR
Description
This paper tackles the socio-political aspects of gender and migration in Jordan. Our concern is to figure out whether and, if so, how public debate, institutional setup and specific governmental or government-approved policies targeting migrant women are gendered, i.e., how gender policies articulate with migratory policies, how gender determines migrants’ experience, in terms of, for instance, life cycle and employment. We also inquire about the purposes of such policies. Our main conclusion is that, though public debate is indeed gendered, migration policies are not. On immigration, gender does not have priority over other characteristics of the migrant in the overall policy-making process on migration. However, there exists an economic sector-selective gendering of policies targeting female migrants in Jordan. This process is rooted in the political necessity of engineering female and migrant issues to respond to Jordanian nationals’ concerns. As for females’ emigration and, especially, a new trend involving mainly unmarried skilled young women directed at the Arab Gulf States, it has been so far ignored in the public debate, caught between the ‘open door’ policy and the institutional setup of Jordan’s ‘blocked society’. In the Jordanian context, migration, indeed, hardly allows female empowerment let alone female immigrants in Jordan. Therefore the paper advocates a stronger involvement on the part of sending countries’ in the defence of their nationals employed abroad, especially given the situation of female English domestic workers. / Cet article traite des aspects sociopolitiques de la relation entre genre et migration en Jordanie. Nous cherchons à comprendre si et comment le débat public, le contexte institutionnel et les politiques gouvernementales (ou soutenues par le gouvernement) visant les femmes migrantes sont genrées. Comment les politiques dans le domaine du genre s’articulent-elles aux politiques migratoires ? En quoi le genre détermine-t-il l’expérience des migrants, en termes de cycle de vie, de travail et d’emploi, par exemple ? Nous nous intéressons également aux objectifs de ces politiques. La conclusion principale de ce rapport est la suivante : le débat public prend en compte la question du genre mais les politiques migratoires l’ignorent le plus souvent. Concernant l’immigration, nous montrons que le genre ne pèse pas plus que d’autres facteurs dans le processus global de conception et de mise en œuvre des politiques migratoires. Cependant, on peut repérer une sélection par le genre dans certains secteurs économiques ouverts aux travailleurs immigrés, dont l’exemple le plus emblématique est l’emploi domestique. Ce processus a pour origine la nécessité politique d’instrumentaliser les questions de la femme et de la migration en réponse aux préoccupations des citoyens jordaniens. La question de l’émigration des femmes, en particulier le récent mouvement de femmes jeunes et célibataires vers les pays du Golfe, est pour sa part absente du débat public. Celui-ci reste en effet prisonnier de la politique de la « porte ouverte » mais surtout du contexte institutionnel d'une société jordanienne « bloquée ». Le contexte jordanien n’est donc pas toujours propice à l’autonomisation (empowerment) des femmes jordaniennes mais encore moins à celle des migrantes étrangères. Notre étude appelle donc les autorités des pays d’origine des migrantes à s’investir plus fortement dans la défense des intérêts de leurs ressortissantes expatriées, et de manière urgente dans celle des domestiques asiatiques.
