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; (

Humanitarian Problems Relating to Migration in the Turkish- Greek Border Region: The Crucial Role of Civil Society Organisations.

Authors Max Schaub
Description
Drawing on a comprehensive analysis of migration-related humanitarian problems in the Turkish-Greek border region, this brief argues that civil society organisations (CSOs) have a key role to play in ameliorating the situation. Migrants and refugees clandestinely attempting to cross the Turkish-Greek border region suffer from a host of human rights violations. They are mistreated by smugglers, detained under intolerable conditions, and are at risk of being illegally pushed-back across the border to Turkey and deported. Since the actions of governments are at the core of the humanitarian problems, civil society organisations are virtually the only actors that can help to reduce the numbers of violations and to promote the humane treatment of migrants and refugees. However, the report shows that existing organisations in both Turkey and Greece are poorly positioned to take on such a role, as they lack staff and volunteers, access to funds and know-how. CSOs from regions that face fewer problems should thus support organisations active in the border region. CSOs should both assist and monitor state authorities. On the international level, local and international CSOs should continue to pressure European govern-ments to devise more constructive migration policies.

Cooperation between government and civil society in the management of migration: Trends, opportunities and challenges in Europe and North America

Authors Sarah Spencer, Nicola Delvino
Description
Across Europe and North America, government at all levels is cooperating with civil society organisations in the management of migration and in the resettlement and integration of refugees and migrants. This paper explores some of the issues that are raised by these relationships and are addressed in the academic and policy literature. While cooperation between government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) per se has long been the focus of scholarship, cooperation in the migration field is far less well explored. Yet, notwithstanding significant variation in the extent and forms of cooperation, governments rely on NGOs to fulfil a range of functions in the implementation of migration, resettlement and integration policies and to a certain extent in the policy development process. Collaboration, moreover, can bring significant challenges: working relationships can be harmonious and long standing, but can equally be fragile and carry economic and political costs for both parties. This paper addresses what we know of recent trends in relation to cooperation in the migration field; the tiers of government where it is found and the dimensions of migration that it addresses; setting that in the context of what is known more broadly of recent trends in government-civil society relationships. It explores what motivates governments and civil society to work together, the forms of cooperation, and the challenges that arise in their working relationships.

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.

Snapshots from the Borders - Participatory investigation: Tenerife

Authors El Observatorio de la Inmigración de Tenerife (OBITen)
Description
«Snapshots From The Borders» is a 3-years project, co-funded by the European Union and run by 36 partners, border local authorities and civil society organisations, led by the Lampedusa and Linosa municipality. The main general objective of the project is the improvement of the critical understanding of European and local decision and law makers, civil servants, opinion leaders, public opinion and citizens about the topic of migration flows towards European borders. Our aim is strengthening a new horizontal, active network of cities and towns directly facing migration flows at EU borders, as a way to promote more and more effective policy coherence at all levels. The final perspective and framework is to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals.This report has been carried out through the analysis of secondary statistical data sources available at the national and local levels; the results of different empirical investigations undertaken by the Immigration Observatory of Tenerife in the last 15 years; and 23 semi-structured interviews with university experts, representatives from immigrant associations, professionals from NGOs, immigrants and their children, political representatives, technicians from the local governments, and participants in social movements linked to the defence of human rights. All the interviews have been recorded on video and a script with questions has been used, based on this report’s structure, but with the questions adapted to the profiles of each person interviewed.

"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.'

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.

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.

Beiträge der Zivilgesellschaft zur Bewältigung der Flüchtlingskrise – Leistungen und Lernchancen

Authors Ruth Simsa, Maian Auf, Sara-Maria Bratke, ...
Description
„Gäbe es die Zivilgesellschaft nicht, wäre das gesamte Asylsystem mittlerweile zusammengebrochen“ (I 17, Führungskraft, Nov.15). Die Flüchtlingskrise hat gezeigt, dass die Zivilgesellschaft eine wichtige Rolle bei der Bewältigung von Herausforderungen der Immigration und Integration spielt. Im Herbst und Winter 2015 wäre es ohne zivilgesellschaftliches Engagement in Österreich zu einer humanitären Katastrophe gekommen. Die Zivilgesellschaft hat in dieser Zeit besonders hohe Beiträge geleistet, sei es in der Erstversorgung, in der Organisation von Flüchtlingsunterkünften, in Integrationsmaßnahmen und in der Mobilisierung und Koordination freiwilliger Hilfe. Zudem haben zivilgesellschaftliche AkteurInnen auch die öffentliche Meinung mitgeprägt und die Vernetzung von Freiwilligen befördert. Es ist davon auszugehen, dass Integration ohne weitere Beiträge der Zivilgesellschaft und ihrer Organisationen auch in Zukunft nicht möglich sein wird. In dem vorliegenden Projekt wurde daher folgenden Fragen nachgegangen:  Was hat die Zivilgesellschaft im Herbst 2015 zur Bewältigung der sogenannten Flüchtlingskrise geleistet und wie wurde dies erreicht?  Wie wurde die Arbeit der Zivilgesellschaft von syrischen Flüchtlingen wahrgenommen?  Was kann daraus für die Bewältigung weiterer Herausforderungen der Immigration und Integration gelernt werden? Alle genannten Probleme bzw. Lernchancen müssen vor dem Hintergrund der Ausnahmeund Krisensituation sowie der hohen Leistungen der Zivilgesellschaft betrachtet werden. Eine große Herausforderung für die Organisationen waren Informationsdefizite und sich laufend ändernde Rahmenbedingungen. Auch die gesellschaftliche Polarisierung, Rechtsunsicherheiten bzw. die Nichteinhaltung von Gesetzen durch politische Instanzen und Defizite der wohlfahrtsstaatlichen Aufgabenübernahme waren belastend. Zum Teil hat die Zivilgesellschaft Aufgaben des Staates übernommen. Wo im Auftrag der öffentlichen Hand gearbeitet wurde, gab es häufig mangelnde finanzielle Planungssicherheit und späte Zahlungen für geleistete Arbeit. Die Situation der AsylwerberInnen war aufgrund der mangelnden politischen Abstimmung bzw. Bereitschaft zusätzlich belastet. Das Spektrum der angebotenen Leistungen war extrem breit, neben der Erstversorgung und Akuthilfe umfasst es die Organisation von Wohnraum, Weiterbildungen oder Freizeitgestaltung, Kinderbetreuung, Übersetzungsarbeit, Rechtsberatung, Unterstützung bei Behördenwegen, gesundheitliche Versorgung und vieles mehr. Die Bereitschaft zu freiwilligem Engagement nahm im Herbst 2015 ein Hierzulande nie dagewesenes Ausmaß an. Freiwillige haben sich in nahezu allen Bereichen der Flüchtlingsarbeit engagiert. Viele Freiwillige wurden selbstorganisiert und spontan tätig, ein Großteil allerdings half im Rahmen bestehender NPOs oder neugegründeter Vereine. Für die zivilgesellschaftlichen Organisationen war die Mitarbeit dieser vielen Menschen absolut notwendig, um das hohe Leistungsniveau anzubieten. Mit viel Einsatz und Empathie wurde nicht nur ein hohes Maß an Hilfe geleistet, sondern damit auch ein politisches Statement für Menschlichkeit und Toleranz gesetzt. Das Management der vielen HelferInnen war unter den gegebenen dynamischen Rahmenbedingungen allerdings auch eine Herausforderung. So war eine vorausschauende Bedarfsplanung aufgrund externer Faktoren, wie der Öffnung bzw. Schließung von Grenzen oder der Bereitstellung von Unterkünften und Transportmöglichkeiten kaum möglich. Insgesamt betrachtet haben es die NPOs geschafft, sehr flexibel auf Anforderungen zu reagieren. 2 Die Mobilisierung und Gewinnung von HelferInnen hat über alle Organisationen hinweg größtenteils gut, schnell und unbürokratisch funktioniert, u.a. mittels intensiver und effektiver Nutzung von Social-Media. So konnten die Leistungen der Freiwilligen trotz eines Rückgangs der Engagementbereitschaft im Laufe des Winters aufrecht erhalten bleiben. Aufgrund des hohen und schwer planbaren Bedarfs wurden breite, unspezifische Maßnahmen zur Gewinnung von Freiwilligen gesetzt. Dadurch konnten ausreichend HelferInnen mobilisiert werden, vielfach kam es aber auch zu einem temporären Überangebot an Freiwilligen. In der akuten Phase gab es oft nur eingeschränkte Möglichkeiten zur Selektion von Freiwilligen, es waren kaum Auswahlverfahren möglich und auch die Möglichkeiten zur Orientierung und Einschulung der HelferInnen waren begrenzt und es kam mitunter zu einem Mis-match zwischen Tätigkeiten und Ansprüchen der HelferInnen. Zu Beginn der Akutphase im September fehlten oft klare Kompetenzaufteilungen zwischen Haupt- und Ehrenamtlichen. Andererseits entstanden daraus große Spielräume für die Freiwilligen, die sich vielfach selbst organisierten, Strukturen aufbauten und sich in einem Mix aus Erfahrenem und Neuem selbst einschulten, koordinierten und in ihrer Arbeit ergänzten. Häufig waren diese Spielräume auch der Ausgangspunkt für die Gründung neuer Initiativen. Die Übertragung von Verantwortung an die Freiwilligen hat v.a. dann gut funktioniert, wenn Organisationen klare Ziele und Ansprechpersonen definierten. Weiters wichtig waren Information, Feedback-Kanäle und die Einbindung der Freiwilligen in die Gestaltung der Tätigkeit. War dies nicht gegeben, kam es zu Überforderung, Frustrationen oder auch Konflikten mit bestehenden oder neu eingeführten Ablauf- und Entscheidungsstrukturen. Eine weitere Herausforderung stellte die hohe Fluktuation sowohl unter Freiwilligen als auch z.T. unter den hauptamtlichen KoordinatorInnen dar. Diese erschwerte die Etablierung von strukturierten Kommunikationskanälen und die Informationsweitergabe und führte zu Ineffizienzen in der Ablauforganisation und Ärger bei manchen Freiwilligen. Dies betraf eher etablierte NPOs. Basisinitiativen, die ihre Strukturen um aktuelle Ziele formten, konnten teilweise sehr rasch funktionale Kommunikationskanäle aufbauen. Sowohl Freiwillige als auch Hauptamtliche waren oft mit enormen Belastungen konfrontiert. Maßnahmen gegen Überlastung und Supervisionsangebote und sonstige Formen der Unterstützung waren daher für alle MitarbeiterInnen wichtig. Sie wurden sehr geschätzt, und hätten früher und stärker angeboten werden können. Neben der Tätigkeit selbst trugen auch Anerkennung in (sozialen) Medien der Organisationen und in den Teams zur Motivation bei. Es gab große Unterschiede in der Struktur und Kultur der beteiligten Organisationen. Hier ist ein Kontinuum beobachtbar, entlang der Differenz Hierarchie/Struktur versus Flexibilität/Offenheit. Die eher hierarchisch organisierten Einsatzorganisationen konnten schnelle Entscheidungen treffen, rasch mit ähnlichen Organisationen kooperieren und sie konnten auf die für Katastrophenfälle vorbereiteten Strukturen zurückgreifen. Selbst etablierte Hilfsorganisationen mussten diese erst durch learning by doing aufbauen. Neu gegründete Basisinitiativen wiederum hatten den Vorteil von Flexibilität und Offenheit für spontane Entscheidungen. Für manche Freiwilligen waren diese Strukturen motivierend, andere fühlten sich in klareren Strukturen wohler. In fast allen Organisationen wurde aber von strukturellen Änderungen berichtet, so waren Einsatzorganisationen mit der Notwendigkeit flexiblerer Bereiche konfrontiert, Basisinitiativen machten häufig eine vergleichsweise rasche Entwicklung zu stärkeren Strukturen durch. Die Organisationen haben generell Herausforderungen des sehr raschen Größenwachstums und der Notwendigkeit organisationaler Flexibilität überraschend gut bewältigt. Es wurde Mehrarbeit bewältigt, rasch neues Personal eingestellt und eingesetzt, Regeln bewusst zeitweise außer Kraft gesetzt, aber gleichzeitig notwendige Strukturen bewahrt. Fast alle Organisationen berichten von deutlichen Lernschritten. 3 Kooperationen innerhalb der Zivilgesellschaft funktionierten grundsätzlich gut, in der Regel umso besser, je ähnlicher die PartnerInnen einander waren. Die Kooperationen zwischen strukturell unterschiedlichen AkteurInnen war zum Teil schwieriger, hier gab es unterschiedliche Standards in Bezug auf Verlässlichkeit, Reaktionsgeschwindigkeit, Spielraum für Einzelpersonen etc. Zur Kooperation mit der öffentlichen Hand gab es unterschiedliche Aussagen, z.T. wurde diese als erfolgreich beschrieben, z.T. aber auch kritisiert, v.a. die Nicht-Wahrnehmung von Aufgaben seitens der öffentlichen Hand betreffend. Die Einrichtung der Stelle eines Flüchtlingskoordinators durch die Stadt Wien wurde sehr positiv wahrgenommen, sie unterstützte die Bündelung des Hilfsangebots, v.a. durch die zentrale Informationsstelle. Wenngleich die Arbeit von vielen als sehr befriedigend wahrgenommen wurde, so war sie auch extrem belastend. Zum einen waren viele Hauptamtliche wie Freiwillige zu lange im „Notfallmodus“, sie arbeiteten am Limit. Es gab Freiwillige, die für den Einsatz ihren Job gekündigt oder ihr Studium aufgegeben hatten, Engagement im Ausmaß von 15h oder mehr pro Tag war keine Seltenheit. Auch seelische Belastungen wurden von fast allen wahrgenommen, deutlich mehr allerdings von Personen, die für diese Art von Tätigkeit nicht ausgebildet waren. Die befragten syrischen Flüchtlinge schätzen die vergleichsweise gute Behandlung in Österreich, die Leistungen der Zivilgesellschaft und die soziale Absicherung – sofern sie bereits in deren Genuss kommen. Gleichzeitig berichten alle von erheblichen Problemen, v.a. in Bezug auf lange und ungewisse Verfahren, die Situation und Versorgungslage in Notquartieren, Deutschkurse, Schwierigkeiten bei der Wohnungs- und Arbeitssuche nach Erhalt des Asylbescheides. Manche sind auch enttäuscht, da sie höhere Erwartungen an Österreich hatten, nicht zuletzt aufgrund falscher Versprechungen durch SchlepperInnen. Generell war das Anwachsen zivilgesellschaftlichen Engagements positiv für das Image der Zivilgesellschaft und der NPOs, für das Selbstbild und die persönliche Weiterentwicklung vieler Beteiligter, für Kontakte zwischen Einheimischen und Asylsuchenden und natürlich auch für die Aufrechterhaltung der Versorgung. Gesellschaftspolitisch ist es dennoch kritisch zu beurteilen, dass quantitative und qualitative Standards dem Wollen und Können privater AkteurInnen überlassen wurden. Verantwortungsbewusste Menschen haben somit auf eigene (zeitliche und materielle) Kosten die Lücke geschlossen, die der Staat gelassen hatte. Eine professionelle und mit Ressourcen abgesicherte Grundversorgung durch die öffentliche Hand und NPOs könnte Sicherheit stiften. Der Zivilgesellschaft bliebe Spielraum für Aufgaben der Integration, u.a. der Schaffung eines engmaschigen Netzes von direkten Kontakten zwischen den Zugewanderten und der lokalen Bevölkerung. Hier kann auch eine wichtige Rolle für größere NPOs liegen, nämlich die Unterstützung lokaler, basisorientierter Initiativen, die Integrationsarbeit leisten. „Im Moment (Anm. November 2015) habe ich das Gefühl, ganz Österreich ist Zivilgesellschaft. Der Staat hat sich ganz zurückgezogen, überzeichnet gesagt“ (I 17).

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.

Integration and International Migration : Pathways and Integration Policies

Principal investigator Thomas Lacroix (Research Partner)
Description
The INTEGRIM research training programme aims to establish a multi-site network of early stage researchers (predominantly PhD students) at the eight partner institutions fostering a multidisciplinary research career on International Migration and Integration within the European context. The network will apply a qualification framework with a compatible set of qualifications/knowledge/skills across the national systems for graduates of the INTEGRIM programme. Besides, the INTEGRIM research training programme will address the integration challenges that migration flows pose to policy makers, civil society and industrial partners in Europe. The main features of the proposed research training programme can be described as follows: (1) provide high quality research training on integration policies and processes in the European Union and neighbouring countries. It aims to enhance the quality of the existing knowledge of scholars, policy makers, practitioners, economic actors and civil society dealing with integration. (2) contribute to the creation of an international inter-sectoral and multidisciplinary critical mass on the politics of integration and more specifically on cultural and identity management, citizenship and political participation, labour and social integration and urban integration, residential patterns and mobility. (3) enrich the political and social debate through a transnational multidisciplinary analysis on the causes and conditions leading to migrant integration and economic, social and territorial cohesion. The network aims to bring together key actors with proven experience and knowledge of integration policies and processes from academic, enterprise, civil society and public backgrounds. (4) provide EU policy makers and practitioners with qualitative and quantitative scientific tools to inform their decision making and implementation processes on the four indicated integration policy areas. The proposed programme aims to contribute to the EU’s integration agenda on the basis of the coherent approach to integration pursued at EU level and fostered by the European Commission.

Hechos básicos sobre la inmigración en Tenerife

Authors El Observatorio de la Inmigración de Tenerife (OBITen)
Description
Los movimientos migratorios y la presencia de personas inmigradas en nuestras sociedades están en el centro de la atención política y mediática en Europa. En un contexto en el cual los partidos xenófobos han aumentado de forma preocupante su base de apoyo y donde los rumores y las noticias falsas o tendenciosas están sesgando el debate público sobre las migraciones, es particularmente urgente e importante que la sociedad civil, las instituciones y los medios de comunicación cuenten con información fundamentada y contrastada. Promover y difundir el conocimiento científico de los fenómenos migratorios es una de las principales vocaciones del Observatorio de la Inmigración de Tenerife.
