Civil society actors in travel & migration

Civil society actors in travel and migration are actors like non-governmental and non-profit organisations, faith-based organisations, foundations, migrant associations, voluntary organisations, activist networks and social or political movements. They operate in sending as well as in transit and destination contexts. These actors fill the socio-political space between private and state providers of migration infrastructures on the one hand, and irregular service providers on the other. In practice, overlaps occur: Civil society actors may provide services on behalf of governmental actors but also contravene state policies. Examples are voluntary actors providing clothes, food, medical assistance and shelter along migratory routes, humanitarians rescuing migrants at sea or diaspora organisations giving advice or sending remittances to aspiring migrants in their countries of origin.

Civil society and new migrants in superdiverse contexts

Description
This project investigates the role of civil society organisations (CSOs) for new migrants in superdiverse contexts. It explores whether CSOs are instrumental in the building of social relations during their settlement process. This social aspect of settlement, also described as social integration, is crucial regarding other aspects of settlement such as access to education, housing and the labour market. The project also looks at the role of CSOs regarding the relationships which long-term residents, both of ethnic majority and minority backgrounds, form with newcomers, addressing issues surrounding integration as ‘two-way-process’. The project will lead to novel findings because: • Rather than focussing on established ethnic minorities, it investigates patterns of integration of people originating from relatively new source countries who settle into already superdiverse contexts • It is situated within an emerging research field on new conditions of superdiversity which have rarely been explored systematically • It goes beyond existing quantitative work on civil society participation • It will develop theory around social contact, social capital and integration nuancing current thinking around the role of CSOs in settlement Superdiversity has resulted from changing immigration patterns into Europe, with people entering cities in substantial numbers, and from far more countries of origin than ever before. This has resulted in a condition of more ethnicities, languages, religions, migration experiences, work and living conditions and legal statuses than many cities have ever faced (Vertovec 2007). By way of in-depth ethnographic fieldwork and interviews in two UK urban neighbourhoods, and drawing on existing theory, method and policy, the project will elicit how new migrants settle in such contexts, how long-term residents deal with unprecedented population changes, and what the role of CSOs is in this process.

Enhancing Evidence Based Policy-Making in Gender and Migration

Description
GEMMA’s specific objective is to improve access to synthesised EC-funded Gender and Migration (G&M) research results for the particular groups of policy-makers and civil society organisations (CSOs) at national level in 5 countries. This objective responds to: (i) the need for national level strategy development to promote working cultures between researchers, policy-makers and CSOs and; (ii) the need to enhance the quantity and quality of synthesised research results for policy makers and civil society. The expected results are: (i) 5 national strategies developed to enhance networking and communication between researchers and policy-makers in the field of G&M through Policy-Making and Research National Action Plans (PMR-NAPs); (ii) 5 national strategies developed to enhance networking and communication between researchers and CSOs working in the field of G&M through Civil Society and Research National Action Plans (CSR-NAPs); (iii) increased systematic dissemination and valorisation of synthesised EC-funded research results and related policy recommendations in G&M to policy-makers and CSOs in 5 countries and national languages. The main tasks to achieve result 1 will be: (i) design a Policy Briefing Sheet (PBS) template that will be used to synthesise the research results from 20 FP5 and FP6 projects regarding G&M; (ii) organise 1 Policy Dialogue and Networking Workshop in each country and produce the PMR-NAPS; (iii) organise Validation Workshops for PBS and NAP finalisation; (iv) horizontal analysis of the PBS in order to identify horizontal conclusions and recommendations for the European Commission, researchers, policy-makers and CSOs. The main tasks to achieve result 2 will be: (i) disseminate PBS to at least 20 CSOs in each of GEMMA’s 5 Member States; (ii) organise 1 Civil Society Dialogue and Networking Workshop in each country (CS-DNWs) in the 5 partner countries; (iii) organise one validation workshop in the 5 partner countries to finalise the CSR-NAPs; (

Roma, Gypsies and Travellers' social in/exclusion in European urban camps

Description
The project aims to analyse the role of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Roma, Gypsies and Travellers’ (RGTs) in/exclusion in European urban camps. Triangulating individual semi-structured interviews, oral histories, archival research, and interpretative policy analysis, the interdisciplinary project combines Sociological, Socio-Anthropological and Socio-Historical approaches, contemplating two UK and two Italian superdiverse urban contexts as case studies. It contributes to three research streams: housing exclusion; RGT policy, and camps as socio-spatial configurations, and inaugurates a new interdisciplinary research field on Urban Camps. Dr Sigona, who will act as the Supervisor, is a leading scholar in migration and Roma research in Europe; his expertise is particularly complementary with Dr Picker research skills and knowledge coming from ten years of Sociological field-based research on Roma spatial segregation in five European countries. Due to the excellent quality of infrastructure, scholarly research and staff, the School of Social Policy and the Institute for Research into Superdiversity at the University of Birmingham are the most appropriate academic environment for Dr Picker to become, after the Fellowship, a leading social science scholar in the European Research Area.

Enhancing Workers' Remittances for Development in the Mediterranean Partner Countries

Authors Andrea GALLINA
Description
The rationale of this paper lies in the fact that the areas of emigration are either generally deprived in terms of basic infrastructures, roads, markets, credit and technologies, or the infrastructure can be present but there is a lack of entrepreneurial spirit, weak institutions, and a lack of knowledge about the investments opportunities which divert the savings into non-productive consumptions or, at best, in the construction sector. Therefore, often the areas of emigration face a situation of capital-rich underdevelopment, i.e. three-floor houses equipped with all kind of electronic appliances along nonpaved roads. However, there are examples of practices at the local level, stimulated by the families left behind, the diaspora or by external agencies that successfully attempt to mobilize these savings for productive purposes. The paper will outline some of these practices and highlight the “success” factors that lie at their foundation with the aim to provide the elements for replicability in other areas and provide a tool for policy makers, donors and civil society organizations interested in engaging in this field.

Description
MIGLINK is a Swedish-Mexican-Turkish Research Links consortium specialised on migration and development. MIGLINK aims to examine the development of an incipient global governance framework for migration with a focus on the role of civil society. GFMD, initiated at the UN global dialogue High Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in 2006, is the most inclusive state-led forum between governments on developing policies for international migration. Since its inception, so-called "Civil Society Days" were organized as a side event to the GFMD meetings. The consortium follows preparation, agenda2012) setting, debates and outcomes of upcoming GFMD meetings among to contextualise them in historical and geographical perspective, aiming to identify the role of civil society in global policy making through the GFMD. This is matched by examination of the parallel development of a global movement of civil society in fora outside the formal framework of the GFMD and the formation of alternative agendas for global governance on migration. The consortium links interdisciplinary knowledge on the historical development of global governance on migration with a focus on conditions for sustainable development, poverty reduction, global labour and human rights. Dr. Stefan Rother, South Asian Studies at Freiburg University, with a long standing research trajectory in the subject area, joined the project in 2015.

"The Invisible Politics of Religion: Catholicism, Third Sector and Territory in Southern Europe"

Description
'This research project aims at contributing to the debate over religion and politics in the EU by considering the role played by Catholicism in shaping civil society mobilizations in Southern European regions. The underlying theoretical issues of this project do refer to the classical debates about a) the weberian perspective on the elective affinities between religious ethics, economic and politics; b) the role of culture and social capital in the regional economic development; c) the neo-institutionalist debates about the interaction between the EU, state, substate public authorities and civil society actors. The project will focus on the Catholic third sector. Empirical support will be taken from fieldwork research carried out in three Southern European regions: the Basque Autonomous Community (Spain), Aquitaine (France) and Emilia-Romagna (Italy). Overall hypothesis: despite the institutional and societal decline of Catholicism, religious actors do have not renounced to interfere in public debates. Rather, they have renewed their repertoire of action when becoming civil society actors among others in a pluralistic environment. Far from being confined to the private sphere, religion still plays a significant role in the European public sphere, either as an identity resource, an ethical reference or a ritual provider. As an ethical reference, Catholicism may bias civil society mobilisations towards more caring and community-oriented dynamics and outcomes. As an organization, the Catholic Church defends both general causes and its own interests, and is involved in territorial governance networks associating civil society actors, private bodies and public authorities. This hypothesis will be tested through three case-studies: a) Historical legacy: Catholicism and the emergence of territorial social economies; b) The Catholic third sector and the issue of immigration; c) The Catholic third sector’s mediation in ethnonational conflicts.'

Von der Flüchtlingshilfe zur Fluchthilfe. Auseinandersetzungen um Flüchtlingsschutz im deutschen Migrationsregime und die Rolle zivilgesellschaftlicher Initiativen

Principal investigator Helen Schwenken (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das Forschungsprojekt "Von der Flüchtlingshilfe zur Fluchthilfe" geht aus von der Problematik des Asylparadoxes und dem Umgang zivilgesellschaftlicher Akteure mit seinen Konsequenzen: Zwar gelten in Deutschland das Grundrecht auf Asyl und die völkerrechtlichen Prinzipien des Flüchtlingsschutzes und viele Staaten gewährleisten Flüchtlingsrechte. Um diese zu erlangen, müssen die meisten Schutzsuchenden allerdings mangels legaler Einreisemöglichkeiten illegal Grenzen überqueren und sich in riskante Situationen begeben. Insbesondere durch die sich in den Jahren 2015 und 2016 zuspitzende Lage entwickeln sich in Deutschland vermehrt gesellschaftliche Auseinandersetzungen um den Zugang zu Flüchtlingsschutz. Das Forschungsprojekt analysiert diese Auseinandersetzungen mit Fokus auf das Engagement zivilgesellschaftlicher Initiativen für die sichere Einreise von Flüchtenden. Daher geht das Projekt der Forschungsfrage nach, welche Handlungsansätze und Strategien zivilgesellschaftliche Initiativen im Kontext von Migrations- und Fluchtregimen entwickeln, um sich angesichts beschränkter Einreisewege und humanitärer Notlagen für einen Zugang zum Schutz für Geflüchtete einzusetzen und Fluchthilfe zu leisten.

Flüchtlingsmigration und zivilgesellschaftliche Solidarität im Sozialstaat

Principal investigator Dietmar Süß (Principal Investigator ), Cornelius Torp (Principal Investigator )
Description
Untergräbt die Massenzuwanderung von Flüchtlingen und anderen Immigranten die solidarische Grundlage des Sozialstaats? Gegen den in der gegenwärtigen Debatte vorherrschenden Krisendiskurs halten wir es für eine offene und nur historisch zu beantwortende Frage, was sozialstaatliche Solidarität bedeutet, wie weit sie reicht und für wen sie gilt. Das Projekt will aus einer zeithistorischen Perspektive klären, wie sich der bundesdeutsche Sozialstaat und das ihm zugrundeliegende Solidaritätsverständnis angesichts unterschiedlicher Migrationsbewegungen von den späten 1970er Jahren bis heute verändert hat. Dabei richtet sich der Blick besonders auf die Prägekraft zivilgesellschaftlicher Akteure und freier Wohlfahrtsverbände. Die These lautet: Es waren diese zivilgesellschaftlichen Akteure, die gegen die verbreitete Sozialstaatskrisenrhetorik die Idee sozialpolitischer Solidarität "von unten" neu und transnational zu interpretieren versuchten. Originell ist das Projekt, weil es die dominierende politik- und sozialwissenschaftliche Sozialstaatsforschung in dreierlei Hinsicht herausfordert: durch seine genuin historisch-kultur-wissenschaftliche Perspektive, durch die Frage nach der Innovationskraft zivilgesellschaftlicher Akteure im Transformationsprozess sozialstaatlicher Ordnung und durch die Verbindung von praxeologischen und diskursgeschichtlichen Zugriffsweisen. Ausgehend von der Vorstellung, dass "Solidarität" zu den entscheidenden normativen Ressourcen des Wohlfahrtsstaats gehört, akzentuiert das Projekt dabei einen Begriff, der - ebenso wie "Gerechtigkeit", "Sicherheit" und "Freiheit" - zu den zentralen Wertideen der Moderne gehört, aber bislang kaum Gegenstand historischer Forschung geworden ist.

Exploratory cross-national survey of origin and destination migrant organisations

Authors Justyna Janina SALAMONSKA, Anne UNTERREINER
Description
Recent developments in migration studies have shown how important it is to consider multiple actors, both at origin and destination, in studying migrants’ integration processes. In light of these developments, the INTERACT survey provides a new tool to research migrant integration. Its novelty lies in offering a cross-national approach to civil society organisations at both destination and origin. These organisations are taken as actors relevant for migrant integration in EU destination countries. Upon completion the survey gathered over 900 responses from organisations working predominantly (but not only) in employment, education, language and social relations. These organisations had different levels of reach, but their voices give us a better understanding of how they support migrants in their efforts to integrate in the EU. Although the exploratory character of the survey does not allow for generalisations about all civil society organisations, it sheds light on how these actors’ activities affect migrant integration between origin and destination, and how organisations perceive states of origin and their policies in the context of the day-to-day reality of migrant incorporation in the receiving society. In this methodological paper, we will present the survey’s rationale and structure, before moving onto a description of fieldwork and the challenges faced there. This paper will thus contribute to the multisite cross-national survey literature and map out migrant civil society organisations.
