Tourism and migration

Travel, tourism and migration are often interlinked. There is a significant overlap in the infrastructure used for the purpose of tourism and that for the  purpose of migration. For instance, travel agencies selling holiday packages, consulates and other institutions issuing visa, shops providing travel equipment and dinghies, websites informing about destinations, financial transaction service providers, bus and train stations, ports and airports, as well as the respective means of transportation themselves, accommodation like hostels, (budget) hotels and holiday apartments and even beaches are often used by tourists and migrants alike.

Turismens roll i multikulturella samhällen

Principal investigator Sayaka Osanami Törngren (Project Leader), Thomas Pederson (Participant), Caroline Adolfsson (Participant), Pieter Bevelander (Participant)
Description
Tourism and the tourism industry have been criticized for contributing to a uni-dimensional view of culture and people, which (re)produces stereotypic images, discredited histories and romantic fantasies. There is a risk that tourism reduces places to monocultures where the complexity that makes them interesting disappear. No modern society has only a culture, language or identity. Globalization, migration and other intercultural exchanges changes places. Inclusion and participation are increasingly highlighted in tourism and place branding literature. However, tourism and place branding have rarely been associated with concepts such as integration, migration and multiculturalism. TiM's objective is to explore the role of tourism in multicultural societies, in Sweden and beyond, as well as to act for the inclusion and representation of diversity in tourism development and place branding. TiMS’ originality lies in 1. A multidisciplinary and innovative approach to tourism studies, including design, social work, migration studies, marketing and interaction design, placing it in the forefront of technical and methodological development. 2. The ability to reach actual practical and societal change through collaboration between research and practice through action-oriented research. 3. Studies in Sweden and four non-European countries (Kenya, C hina, Japan and the US) broadens and deepens the understanding and conceptualisation of sustainable and inclusive forms of tourism and place branding.

Short-Term Visa Requirements for Indians to Emigrate to the European Union

Authors Sebastian Irudaya RAJAN
Description
The need to make travel more accessible, convenient and smooth and to improve visa procedures is paramount in both economic and bilateral relations contexts. Towards this end, the paper aims at assessing potential visa facilitation processes and visa waiver programs between the EU and India. To gain an understanding of current visa requirements and procedures for Indians to immigrate to European countries, it deals explicitly with the visa requirements and hurdles involved in getting visa clearance for both long-term and short stays. Through an in-depth study of current migration flows between these two regions, the implications of facilitating visas for citizens of India – one of the world’s fastest growing source markets – is analysed. While findings suggest that the EU is increasingly becoming a destination for tourists, students, professionals and immigrants, millions more were deterred from traveling by cost, waiting time and the difficulty of obtaining a visa. The author calls for priority to be given to facilitating travel as a means to boost economic growth and create jobs. Opening up the travel regime could create millions of additional jobs in the EU economies, generate additional international tourism receipts and may then become the next frontier in bi-lateral relations between these countries.

Policy on migration and diasporas in Georgia

Authors Natia CHELIDZE
Description
Even though, due to Georgia’s geopolitical location and its demographic and economic development, the migration process management is one of the priorities in the country, no migration policy and legislation for the regulation of this field have yet been formed at the state level in Georgia. Local politicians are well aware of the major importance of the labour migration from Georgia for the overcoming of socio-economic crisis in our country. The regulation and management of migration has become a significant part of the international obligations undertaken by Georgia. One of the considerable achievements of the current authorities of Georgia is liberalization of the movement to EU countries and the support to the circular migration. However, unfortunately, bilateral interstate agreements with the main countries of immigration for the legalization of labour migration have not been completed so far. It is still not distinct yet when the work on signing an agreement1 on the residence of qualified professionals from Georgia and the circular migration with France having ongoing for the last few years, will be finalized. The proper assessment of the migration processes is not available because of the lack of the updated statistical database. Nevertheless, the state is taking major steps for regulating the registration of migration flows through the institutions and mechanisms established to serve this purpose. The gradual adoption of modern infrastructure provides for the efficient border monitoring, along with the already introduced secure identity and travel documents (the latest version of a biometric passport and a secure electronic identity card). Currently, the state is pursuing liberal visa policy for the achievement of sustainable economic development, the improvement of an infrastructure for tourism and the attraction of additional investments. Although, the potential challenges accompanying the growth of the number of migrants, should also be taken into account. This process shall be taken special care of, so as to transform it into an incentive factor for the social and economic development, and to avoid the negative consequences of uncontrolled migration, at the same time.

Beneficiaries of international protection travelling to their country of origin: Challenges, Policies and Practices in the EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland – Luxembourg

Authors Sarah Jacobs, Adolfo Sommarribas, Birte Nienaber
Description
The main objectives of this study of the European Migration Network are to provide objective and reliable information about beneficiaries of international protection who travel to their country of origin or come into contact with national authorities of their country of origin, and information on cases where international protection statuses were ceased leading to, for example, the status being ended, revoked or not renewed (as per Article 45 and 46 of the recast Asylum Procedures Directive) and, ultimately, the permission to stay withdrawn. For the Luxembourgish case, it is firstly important to note that beneficiaries of the refugee status and of the status of subsidiary protection are not subject to the same restrictions with regard to travel to the country of origin or contact with national authorities. While refugees are in principle not permitted to travel to the country of origin, beneficiaries of subsidiary protection are not subject to this restriction. In this context, the phenomenon of beneficiaries of the refugee status travelling to their country of origin is currently not considered a policy priority in Luxembourg. While it does occur, there are no statistics providing information on how many refugees undertake this journey or contact the national authorities, on the reasons for travel to the country of origin, nor is there any case law on the cessation of the refugee status for reasons of travel to the country of origin. Luxembourg’s authorities are not systematically informed of such events by the authorities of other Member States. Luxembourg has no external borders with the exception of the international airport of Luxembourg, from where only an extremely limited number of flights to third countries depart. Thus, it is extremely difficult to capture the extent of the phenomenon in Luxembourg. Luxembourg’s Asylum Law establishes the re-availment of the protection of the country of origin and the voluntary re-establishment in the country of origin as grounds for cessation of the refugee status. Travel to the country of origin or contact with its national authorities are not explicitly forbidden by legislation. In principle, refugees are not permitted to travel back to the country of origin. They are provided with this information on multiple occasions: for instance at the moment of the introduction of their application, as well as when they are issued the decision granting them protection. Their travel document also clearly states the restriction. There is no notification or authorisation procedure that would authorise such travel in Luxembourg. When the Directorate of Immigration has the information that a refugee travelled back to the country of origin, it will proceed to an in-depth analysis of the personal situation of the individual. Determining that this travel is proof of the voluntary re-establishment in the country of origin is however considered extremely difficult, as it is nearly impossible to ascertain the reasons for which the refugee returned. Furthermore, a short stay in the country of origin is not necessarily considered like the (permanent) establishment in the country of origin or a proof thereof. This is also due to the fact that the Luxembourgish authorities cannot contact the authorities of the country of origin and have no tools to undertake an investigation there in order to verify that the refugee has re-established him/herself. The travel and the surrounding circumstances can be taken into account if the minister decides to re-examine the validity of the status, which could potentially lead to a withdrawal. The Directorate of Immigration has never considered ceasing protection because a refugee contacted the authorities of the country of origin. Proving that this contact occurred in the first place, and next, proving that it constitutes a re-availment of the protection of the country of origin, is considered nearly impossible. In addition, it is a fact that certain administrative procedures require the production of official documents and that the substitution of these documents with affidavits are in practice not always feasible. As previously mentioned, beneficiaries of subsidiary protection are authorised to travel back to their country of origin and are permitted to contact the authorities of their country of origin. They are even encouraged to contact the national authorities in order to obtain a national passport. These actions can thus not lead to the cessation of the status of subsidiary protection. If the decision to cease the status is taken, the beneficiary is notified of this decision in writing. The decision can be appealed before the First instance Administrative Court. If the decision of the Court is negative, the individual can file an appeal before the Second instance Administrative Court. In principle, the decision to cease international protection carries a return decision. However, the individual can apply for another residence permit if s/he fulfils the conditions established in the Immigration Law. The same is true for family members who got a residence permit through family reunification with the concerned person: the family members will lose their right to stay unless they can gain access to another residence permit under the Immigration Law.

Mapping India-EU tourism flows

Authors Sasidaran GOPALAN
Description
India and the EU have expanded their bilateral economic and investment ties significantly in the last decade or so. As a result of closer ties, the EU has emerged as a very important destination for various types of cross-border flows from India. In addition to the growing movement of professionals and students, there has also been a marked rise in cross-border flows of tourists between India and the EU. Given the economic and strategic significance of promoting tourism flows for fostering bilateral relations, this paper attempts to map the tourism flows between India and a selected few EU countries and also examine their relative significance as destinations or sources. The paper also draws some possible inferences about tourism’s role in facilitating irregular migration.

Indian retailing entrepreneurs : an analysis of migrant entrepreneurship in the Spanish market for retail payment services

Authors Iñigo MORÉ MARTINEZ
Description
Indian migrants have become one of the leading groups of retail entrepreneurs in Spain in payment services. We have found that 310 Indian entrepreneurs are agents of payment institutions in Spain, and that they have a strong preference for Spain's Mediterranean regions: 256, or 82% of them are based there. Half of the 310 Indian agents have traditional Sikh names, suggesting that they have a Sikh background and that they or their families come from Punjab. Twenty percent of all the agents are Indian women. The personal nature of the agency contracts means not only a business for those women, but also status. Being an 'agent' has been found to be empowering, allowing these women spaces of personal autonomy seldom enjoyed by the average immigrant. Half of the Indian agents surveyed can be considered serial entrepreneurs, as they own several businesses, including travel agencies, supermarkets and IT services. Some have even built highly sophisticated financial services ventures. Although the focus of the text is on immigrants from India, the text also addresses other origins. The text is divided into two parts. The first is a description of the context, activity and the general dataset. The second concentrates on Indian entrepreneurs with a survey that included in-depth interviews.

Human trafficking in Moldova

Authors Vladimir GANTA
Description
Since Moldova declared its independence in 1992 and people gained the right to travel freely abroad, illegal migration and human trafficking became an important problem for the Government and its international partners. After the war against Russia, in Transnistria (1992) the Government lost control over the most industrialized part of the country and almost all the eastern border. Constant fights between prowestern and pro-russian parties, corruption created an environment where officials could use their positions to make fortunes by protecting organized crime. Poverty and lack of employment opportunities in Moldova made people desperately search for solutions in other countries. In this environment, many desperate people became victims of criminals (often protected by officials) who made fortunes by selling other humans for sex, begging, labour.

The European response to the Syrian refugee crisis : what next?

Authors Philippe FARGUES, Christine FANDRICH
Description
Although over 450,000 Syrians fled to countries nearby Syria, numbers seeking refuge within the EU remain small. In 2011, a total of 8,920 Syrians applied for asylum within EU borders, while in the first three quarters of 2012 applications increased slightly, reaching a total of 11,573. Only 1,490 irregular entries of Syrians were recorded during the last three quarters of 2011, which rose to 2,739 in the first two quarters of 2012. Numbers of Syrians applying for immigration have also remained negligible. In light of the overall magnitude of the crisis compared with the actual numbers reaching Europe, this paper reviews EU’s response to the crisis. First, it presents the facts: a historical review of displacements from Syria, the numbers, and the route of travel for Syrian refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers to Europe. This is followed by a review of European responses to the Syrian crisis. Finally, the paper concludes with recommendations for addressing the Syrian refugee crisis. In short, the EU could consider: establishing a Regional Protection Programme (RPP) with a large increase of Syrian refugee resettlement as a required component; increasing refugee resettlement for those who have been affected by the Syrian crisis and are the most in need; continue positive asylum procedures throughout the EU, and grant prima facie recognition including provision of sufficient assistance to Syrian asylum seekers; encourage visa facilitation and family reunification for Syrians; and continue to work with its international partners to find a political and humanitarian solution to the Syrian crisis.

The incomplete trajectory of Albanian migration in Greece

Authors Eda GEMI
Description
The study addresses the irregular migration of Albanians to Greece. In particular, it analyses the key findings of the fieldwork with 87 Albanian migrants, the dynamic of irregular migration from Albania to Greece, the factors and the actors who affect them as well as the success or failure of the relevant migration policies. The report shows that the expanding possibility of legal entry into Greece has had the immediate consequence of limiting irregular border crossing. What emerges is that the dynamic of attraction exerted by the demand for seasonal work in sectors like tourism and agriculture, is critical in shaping the irregular migration map. The data of the case study showed that irregular flows are not significantly implicating new migrants. Rather, we see that the involvement of those who perhaps possess even rudimentary information about the Greek environment and maintain contacts with the migration networks (ethnic, family and/or with Greek employers) in Greece. Finally, the migration plans of Albanians have been shaped accordingly with the impact of the crisis on opportunities for employment in Greece, the legal status, the level of influence and facilitation provided by migration networks, the migration policies, the liberalisation of the entry visa for Albanian nationals (implemented in December 2010), the bilateral relations between Albanian and Greece, and the unstable political and socio-economic situation in Albania.

La Migration irrégulière, de, vers et à travers le Niger

Authors Timothée TABAPSSI
Description
De récentes études ont montré qu’au cours des 20 dernières années, les flux de migrants en situation irrégulière depuis et vers le Niger n’ont cessé d’augmenter. Le potentiel de croissance économique du pays et les opportunités d’investissement dans le secteur tertiaire, l’énergie, le tourisme, l’hôtellerie et l’artisanat utilitaire laissent présager une accélération de cette tendance. La présente étude examine à la lumière des données existantes ainsi que de celles recueillies au cours d’entretiens avec de jeunes candidats à l’émigration vers le Maghreb et l’Europe : (i) les déterminants de la migration irrégulière ; (ii) les politiques publiques mises en place pour lutter contre ce phénomène en Afrique et en Europe et leurs limites. Pour conclure, nous formulons quelques recommandations pour une maîtrise efficace de ces flux. Abstract Recent studies reveal that Niger has been, for about two decades, a privileged space for illegal migration to North Africa and Europe. Job opportunities in many sectors in Niger such as services, mines and energy, tourism and artisanship indicate that these illegal movements will increase. In this paper, we analyze, in the light of the existing data as well as of data collected during interviews with potential illegal migrants towards the Maghreb and Europe: (i) The driving forces behind illegal migration ; ii) policies concerning the phenomenon in Africa and in Europe and the limits of these policies ; and iii) we conclude with some recommendations for an effective control of illegal migration flows.

Circular migration of the population of the Republic of Moldova

Authors Valeriu MOSNEAGA
Description
The specific nature of Moldovan circular migration to the CIS and EU is determined by two criteria: vector (direction) of migration and nature of employment in destination countries. According to the results of public opinion poll, mainly people from the villages participate in circular migration to the CIS; heads of households, men with secondary or vocational education. For them labor migration abroad is a secondary form of employment, and it is seasonal. Circular migrants to the other countries are predominantly women, and a great share of them have higher education. There are significant differences which determine circular nature of migration, especially in the impact of push and pull factors. Labor migration to the CIS countries is determined to a greater extent by the migrants' and their households' need to survive, while migration to the EU countries is conditioned by the greater living (functioning) opportunities for migrants and their families. Visa regime, high travel expenses have a significant impact on the nature of circular migration to the EU. It explains greater length of trips. Work trip to the CIS (mainly to Russia) usually lasts around 7 months, while in the EU it's twice longer, 15 months. Quite often it stimulates non-return migration. In the conditions of modern financial and economic crisis of 2008-2010 circular migration acquired several new features. These include delayed nature of migration, greater comparable choice possibilities in terms of destination countries and countries of origin, uncertainty and mass multiple choices of its implementation.

Le droit tunisien de l'immigration

Authors Monia BEN JEMIA
Description
Les conditions d’entrée, de séjour et de travail des étrangers sont, dans la réglementation tunisienne actuelle, particulièrement restrictives et procèdent d’une politique législative de fermeture à l’immigration. Le passé colonial explique sans aucun doute cette politique législative, matérialisée par une réglementation (1968) prise au lendemain de l’indépendance (1956). Les contraintes du développement, un taux de chômage élevé expliquent le maintien de cette politique législative qui n’a été assouplie que dans deux domaines clés pour l’économie tunisienne, l’investissement étranger et le tourisme. L’amélioration de la condition des étrangers devrait d’autant plus figurer parmi les priorités de la transition démocratique qu’elle souffre dans la réglementation actuelle de sa non-conformité au droit international des droits de l’homme et plus particulièrement à la Convention internationale sur les droits de tous les travailleurs migrants et des membres de leur famille de 1990, non ratifiée par la Tunisie. Abstract The current rules governing foreign nationals’ entry, stay and work in Tunisia are extremely restrictive and are part of a closed legislative policy towards immigration. The colonial past surely explains this legislative policy, translated into regulation (1968) adopted after independence (1956). The constraints of development and a high level of unemployment explain the continuing use of this legislative policy, which has been softened only in two key sectors of the Tunisian economy : namely foreign investment and tourism. The improvement of foreign nationals’ status should be a priority in the democratic transition, all the more so since the current status does not conform to international human-rights law or, more specifically to the 1990 international convention on the rights of all migrant workers and members of their family, which has not been ratified by Tunisia.

E-Diaspora Atlas

Principal investigator Dana Diminescu (Principal Investigator)
Description
Le projet « e-diasporas atlas » entend se démarquer de la formule classique d&rsquo,un atlas des migrations qui se focalise traditionnellement sur les flux, les trajectoires ou la dispersion des populations en mouvement sur les territoires physiques. Les évolutions récentes du phénomène migratoire montrent que les parcours des migrants d&rsquo,aujourd&rsquo,hui passent aussi &ndash, et parfois bien avant d&rsquo,investir le parcours physique &ndash, par les territoires numériques. L'un des changements majeurs intervenu depuis les années 80 dans le domaine des diasporas tient à la multiplication des communautés en dispersion dans l&rsquo,espace physique et à leurs nouvelles formes de regroupement, d&rsquo,action et d&rsquo,occupation dans les territoires numériques. Ce changement appelle à une autre approche épistémologique. Les sujets tout comme les outils conceptuels et méthodologiques classiques de la discipline doivent êtres reconsidérés et confrontés avec cette nouvelle donne migratoire. Le projet E-Diasporas Atlas a pour ambition 1. d'analyser une réalité sociologique en pleine mutation et porteuse de nouvelles questions sur les migrations. 2. d'expérimenter des outils de production, assemblage et mise à disposition de contenus. Ouvrir un nouveau terrain de recherche, articuler deux courants d&rsquo,études jusqu&rsquo,ici relativement dissociés (les théories des diasporas et l&rsquo,étude de l&rsquo,exploration du web) et développer des outils génériques à redéployer dans d&rsquo,autres disciplines SHS sont les objectifs majeurs de ce projet. Il s&rsquo,articule autour de trois composantes : - Exploration et constitution de corpus : Les chercheurs-experts mobilisés dans le cadre de ce projet explorent le web pour constituer leur corpus. Ils disposent d'outils spécifiques pour les aider dans cette tâche (leur permettant de capitaliser la navigation, enrichir et organiser les données, etc.). Les chercheurs pilotent toutes les phases de ces explorations ainsi que leur enchaînement. - Archivage : Après avoir réaliser des crawls de validation de ces corpus, les corpus collectés sont archivés dans leur épaisseur temporelle. - Analyse des corpus: Cette analyse intervient dès la phase d&rsquo,exploration. Elle nous permet d&rsquo,orienter méthodologiquement la prospection et d'évaluer le degré de 'diasporisation' des communautés des migrants en ligne. Elle comporte plusieurs niveaux : confrontation du terrain numérique et du terrain physique, analyse des réseaux, visualisation et cartographie des corpus, analyse sémantique des contenus, etc. Cette chaîne méthodologique représente une innovation dans les sciences humaines.
