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.

De geloofwaardigheidsbeoordeling van asielaanvragen met een LHBTI- of bekeringsmotief. Een inventarisatie van (on)mogelijkheden tot verbetering

Authors Research and Documentation Centre, Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security, Djamila Schans, Lisette van Lierop
Description
Het beoordelen van een asielaanvraag waarin LHBTI (Lesbiennes, homo's, bi's en transgenders)-gerichtheid of een bekering als motief is aangevoerd is een complexe aangelegenheid, waarbij de beslissing in grote mate berust op de beoordeling van de geloofwaardigheid van de seksuele of religieuze identiteit. Het onderhavige rapport gaat in op de totstandkoming van de geloofwaardigheidsbeoordeling van asielzaken met een LHBTI- of bekeringsmotief en de bijbehorende knelpunten. Daarnaast wordt er gekeken naar aanknopingspunten voor verbetering van de geloofwaardigheidsbeoordeling, en voorbeelden van pilots en projecten in andere landen of domeinen.
