Dynamique des Circulations Migratoires et mobilités transfrontalières entre Guyane, Surinam, Brésil, Guyana et Haïti

Description
Ce programme interdisciplinaire s’articule autour de l’analyse des relations entre les migrations internationales et les autres formes de mobilités nationales ou transnationales, la question des langues et des identités dans la migration, les politiques migratoires et l’impact des mobilités sur le développement. Appréhendé à différentes échelles spatiales et sociales d’analyse, le terrain d’étude apparaît comme un cas exemplaire permettant de questionner les rapports nord-sud, et d’examiner la formation de nouveaux espaces transfrontaliers et transnationaux dans un monde en processus de globalisation.

Mapping undocumented lives: Cross-border mobilities, urban spatialities and the paperless migrants in the EU / Rajanylityksiä, diasporan tiloja: paperittomien siirtolaisten EU (241 777 €)

Principal investigator Inka Kaakinen ()
Description
Project description: It is estimated that there are currently some 3.8 million paperless migrants living in the EU-member countries. Whereas the question of their (lack of) social rights has been brought up in several studies, very little is known about the ways they get by in cities and spaces without the due documents that would entitle them to those rights. In this study I aim to fill this gap and focus, therefore, on the embodied, material mobilities and moorings of the paperless migrants, the mobilisation of transnational networks and the politics and spatial practices in diaspora. The research maps the geographies of the “undocumented everyday” and gives the paperless a voice through a qualitative approach. It aims to trace some of the creative interfaces between work on urban public space, mobilities, transnational migrations and the intricate idea of development. The key concepts are inclusion, legality, visibility, mobility, power structures and, finally, people’s right to be (in public). / Hankkeen Julkinen kuvaus: EU:n alueella elää arviolta 3,8 miljoonaa paperitonta siirtolaista, joiden sosiaaliset oikeudet ovat viime aikoina nousseet tutkimuskysymyksiksi, mutta joiden arjen maantieteestä tiedetään edelleen hyvin vähän. Kuinka he selviävät kaupunkitiloissa, joissa heitä ei virallisesti ole olemassa ja joissa heidän ei tulisi näkyä? Tutkimus kartoittaa paperittomien arkea eri osissa EU:ta ja tuo esille, 1) kuinka kansalliset maahanmuutto- ja siirtolaispolitiikat muokkaavat paperittomien tilallisia käytäntöjä paikallisesti ja 2) mitä nämä diasporan tilat puolestaan kertovat parhaista käytännöistä EU:ssa. Tutkimusote on korostetun tilallinen, mutta liikkuu kaupunkimaantieteen lisäksi muuttoliike- ja kehitystutkimuksen rajapinnassa. Tutkimuksen avainkäsitteitä ovat näkyvyys, liikkuvuus, liikkuvat metodit, vallan rekisterit, kehitys sekä oikeus kaupunkitiloihin.

The Europeanisation of Everyday Life: Cross-Border Practices and Transnational Identities among EU and Third-Country Citizens

Description
The EUCROSS project examines the relationship between the manifold activities of EU residents (nationals, mobile EU citizens, and third-country nationals) across the borders of nation states and their collective identities. Specifically, the project will: 1) map out individuals’ cross-border practices as an effect of European integration and globalisation; 2) assess the impact of these practices on collective identifications (also controlling for the inverse causal process). Which cross-border practices are more likely to foster some form of identification with the EU – e.g., contacts with foreign friends and/or unwanted foreigners, periods of labour mobility abroad, buying property abroad, business and tourist travel, or consumer relations with international companies? Under which contextual and individual conditions do these experiences promote a higher sensitivity to ‘Europe’ – rather than the ‘local’ or the ‘global’ – as an identity catalyst? Which social groups are more prone to adopt a European mindset in the wake of the Europeanisation of everyday life? To disentangle empirically the factors and mechanisms that link together the cross-border practices facilitated by European integration, globalisation and/or other dimensions of collective identity, we adopt a two-stage, mixed quantitative/qualitative approach. In the first stage, we will carry out a quantitative survey among nationals, intra-EU movers (Romanian citizens) and third-country nationals (Turkish citizens) who reside in six European countries (Denmark, Germany, Italy, Romania, Spain and the United Kingdom). In the second stage, we will interrogate, via in-depth interviews, the meaning given by individuals to cross-border practices, their collective identifications, and the role that the European Union, globalisation, and the nation play in these personal narratives, among a select typology of respondents to the quantitative survey.

Migration and Transnational Social Protection in (post) crisis Europe

Description
The negative employment and social developments across Europe since the start of the crisis, coupled with increased fiscal constraints and changing migration patterns, have led to increasing depictions of EU and third-country immigrants as ‘abusers’ of their social protection systems. Member States have accordingly sought reduce migrants’ ability to access social protection benefits, despite the fact that they are disproportionately at risk of poverty and social exclusion. This project looks at the different strategies that migrants have to access social protection within (post) crisis Europe and does so by explicitly integrating social policy and migration studies’ approaches on the phenomenon. More precisely, it aims to study transnational social protection, that we define as migrants’ cross-border strategies to cope with social risks in areas such as health, long-term care, pensions or unemployment that combine entitlements to host and home state-based public welfare policies and market-, family- and community-based practices. This study thus consists in, first, identifying the social protection policies and programs that home countries make accessible to their citizens abroad, and then compiling this information into an online database. We will then aggregate the results of the database into a Transnational Social Protection Index (TSPIx) in order to determine the overall level of engagement of each state with citizens abroad in a comparative way. Second, on the basis of the results of the index, we will select case studies of migrants from two EU and two non-EU countries that vary in their level of engagement in providing social protection to their citizens abroad. We will then undertake multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork to qualitatively assess the informal social protection strategies used by migrants and examine their interaction with formal host and home state social protection provision.

THE LIMITS TO THE TRANSFER OF FIRMS’ STATUS ADVANTAGES IN CROSS-BORDER INVESTMENTS

Description
The performance benefits of firm status have been well-documented in the literature. While recent work in management has shown that status advantages may be transferable across markets as a proxy of entering firm’s quality, the limits to the transferability of status advantages, particularly across national borders, have not been fully studied. This research program proposes to study this question in three related parts: (1) How do physical, cultural and institutional distances between home and host countries influence the transfer of status-based advantages? (2) How do transnational ties, especially those of migration and trade, influence the transferability of status advantages? (3) How do country-level status differences influence the transfer of firm-level status advantages in cross-border trade? This study will examine these questions in the context of cross-border venture capital investments. This context not only provides an opportunity to examine how status advantages transfer across national borders, but also a deeper understanding of cross-border venture capital flows, a topic of increasing importance to foster innovation and economic growth. The empirical study will examine the likelihood of venture capital firms to enter a new country, and the amount of their investment in the country, with a longitudinal data set that compiles secondary data on investments between a sample of countries. The study will contribute to the literature and practice in two ways. First, it will contribute to the management literature by examining the contingencies around the transfer of status advantages. Second, it will contribute to the entrepreneurship and innovation financing literature by documenting the pathways of cross-border investment as a function of firm-level status advantages. Third, it will inform practice by providing a guideline to firms and policy makers about how venture capital firms choose where to invest.

Transnationales Handeln indischer Migranten in Deutschland

Principal investigator Carsten Butsch (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das Vorhaben widmet sich den transnationalen Netzwerken in Deutschland lebender indischer Migranten. Am Beispiel der indischen Community in Deutschland wird untersucht, welche Verbindungen zwischen indischen Migranten in Deutschland, ihren Herkunftsorten in Indien und zu der indischen Diaspora in anderen Ländern bestehen. Im Zentrum des Erkenntnisinteresses stehen die Veränderungsprozesse, die an unterschiedlichen Orten durch das transnationale Handeln indischer Migranten ausgelöst werden. Untersucht werden als potentielle Ursachen der Veränderungsprozesse: (1) die Relevanz transnationaler sozialer Verbindungen und ihre Bedeutung für Folgemigration, den Austausch von Informationen, Werten, Kapital etc., (2) die Konstruktion und Veränderung von Identität transnational handelnder Migranten, Modelle der Einbindung in verschiedene Gesellschaften sowie die damit zusammenhängenden Fragen der Staatsangehörigkeit, (3) die Wege von Kapital innerhalb der transnationalen Netzwerke, die Verwendung von Rimessen sowie die Wirkung nicht-finanzieller Unterstützungen sowie (4) das politische Engagement transnationaler indischer Migranten, die Diasporapolitik der indischen Regierung und die Wirkung der deutschen Einwanderungspolitik. Das Forschungsdesign sieht vor, Erhebungen an unterschiedlichen Orten durchzuführen, welche durch die Netzwerke transnational handelnder Migranten verbunden sind. Methodologisch wird ein mixed method research (MMR)-Ansatz verfolgt, der die Vorteile unterschiedlicher Methoden miteinander vereint und durch sequentielle Integration eine Anpassung und Fokussierung der genutzten Erhebungsinstrumente sicherstellt. Das Vorhaben leistet auf konzeptioneller Ebene einen Beitrag zur Vertiefung des Transnationalismuskonzepts. Der empirische Ertrag des Vorhabens liegt in der Untersuchung der Migrationssysteme der indischen Community in Deutschland, über die bisher nur in geringem Umfang, thematisch enge Publikationen vorliegen. Von besonderem Interesse sind hierbei die bisher wenig untersuchten triadischen Beziehungen innerhalb der Community, nach Indien und zu Kontaktpersonen in der weltweiten Diaspora.

Transformation of Family Norms in a Transnational World: How LGBT Migrants can Affect Change through Social Remittances

Description
The present study examines transformations of family norms through cross-border exposure to different family models. It focuses on the LGBT migrants from selected Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries with a constitutional same-sex marriage ban, but who now live in same-sex families in Belgium, one of the first countries to legalize same-sex marriage and adoption. This case study will explore how intercultural contact can improve reception of an institutional innovation such as same-sex family. This project is based on in-depth interviews with two groups sustaining ties across borders: (1) the CEE gays and lesbians in same-sex marriage or raising children with a same-sex partner in Belgium, and (2) their non-migrant family members, friends and neighbours in home communities. Migrant transnationalism scholars have established that migrants can effect change in their home communities not only by sending remittances, but also by transferring ideas and practices (social remittances). But empirical investigations of this phenomenon are still scarce, and typically focus on democratic ideas and practices. In a novel approach, the present study will analyse social remittances by examining cross-cultural effects of the institutional innovation of same-sex family, and it will further position its findings into the wider framework of social change analysis. In light of the European Parliament's recent decision to include LGBT and same-sex families' rights into the new EU gender equality strategy, the study's conclusions will also inform relevant policy strategies. By developing this study at the Interdisciplinary Research Centre on Families and Sexualities at the UCL, the project will benefit from Centre's multidisciplinary perspective and expertise in transnational migrations, family norms and sexuality, to which the project will add a new perspective on the LGBT migrants from CEE, thus deepening Centre's focus on LGBT studies and widening their regional expertise.
