THEORIZING THE EVOLUTION OF EUROPEAN MIGRATION SYSTEMS (THEMIS) CONFERENCE

24/09/2013–26/09/2013, Oxford

Why do some migrants set off the movement of thousands of people, while others are followed only by a few, or remain virtually alone in the destination country? Some answers can be found in the variation in economic and social conditions in different places. Another vital part of the puzzle relates to the historical, social and cultural practices of migration: those who move now are following in the footsteps of those who left before. This conference examines how enduring patterns of migration emerge, are sustained and decline; the mechanisms by which the migration processes of yesterday influence those of today; and the role of the migrant as a social actor in the face of these historical and social processes.

The conference will take an inter-disciplinary approach to migration dynamics drawing on comparative studies of international and internal migration processes and will include contributions covering both origin and destination countries/regions.

02/09/2013–07/09/2015, Lille, Leuven, Wroclaw, Cluj, Dakar, Sao Paolo, Cork

Located in territories shaped by migration, these institutions have been led to question the social changes, cultural and resulting policies and now extend to the global society. It therefore became necessary to train experts of migration, integration, management of cultural and linguistic diversity, with particular expertise in ethics.

SUMMERSCHOOL - MIGRATION, INTEGRATION AND ETHNIC RELATION

19/08/2013–30/08/2013, Utrecht

Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. Host populations have to adapt to migrants and their religion and culture, while migrants have to find their way in a new and sometimes aversive environment. Acceptance and adaptation have to be realized by migrants in spite of initial resistance, possible social exclusion and explicit political rejection by part of the host population.
This course introduces students to sociological and other social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, reactions of the host society, and the integration of immigrants and their children. The approach is analytical and empirical and focuses on international migration, stereotyping, discrimination, political mobilization, extreme-right wing voting, ethnic segregation in social networks, and ethnic inequality in the labor market.

ACCESS TO CITIZENSHIP AND ITS IMPACT ON IMMIGRATION INTEGRATION: EU FINAL EVENT

22/02/2013, Brussels

What are the effects of citizenship acquisition on the integration of immigrants? What are the major opportunities and obstacles for immigrants to become citizens across the EU? What can European institutions and civil society do to promote naturalisation in European countries? Academic researchers, government and civil society will obtain data, comparative analyses and practical guidelines on how to evaluate policy outcomes, set targets and good governance standards, and assess the prospective impact of policy changes.

The main goals of the ACID project are to explore the links between acquisition of nationality and the integration processes and to encourage effective measures for facilitating immigrants' access to citizenship in the EU. Research results will be disseminated through an interactive website, 10 national handbooks, 4 comparative reports based on the indicators and a final European-level report. ACIT will also highlight changes in citizenship laws and implementation that have improved integration in practice and it will provide policy recommendations to reinforce EU indicators on active citizenship and to develop an EU module on "Citizenship and Integration."

TACKLING HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN EUROPE: PREVENTION, PROTECTION, PROSECUTION

30/01/2013, Brussels

Human trafficking is an increasingly disturbing phenomenon in Europe with terrible consequences for victims, the majority of whom are forced into prostitution, street crime, domestic servitude and other forms of labour exploitation. The International Labour Organization estimates that there are approximately 880,000 victims of forced labour, including forced sexual exploitation, within the EU. The most vulnerable members of society are targeted with women and girls making up nearly 80% of the victims and three-quarters trafficked for sexual exploitation. As well as devastating the lives of individuals, this crime has far-reaching implications for the social, economic and organisational fabric of every affected community in Europe.

VLAMIGRANT - EXHIBITION ABOUT FLEMISH MIGRATION

19/01/2013–21/04/2013, Marcinelle

Migration is, now more than ever, of great interest. Learn about Flemish migration from the past to today. At the Bois du Cazier from 19/01 to 21/04. Migration is a phenomenon that is apparent in all countries and with all peoples. But it has always been assumed that the Flemish are more comfortable in their own regions and have an attraction to settling down close to home.However, many have proven that this is not the case and, throughout the centuries, have moved away in search of a better life or future. Who were, and are, these emigrants? Why did they leave their homes? Where did they settle? How were they received abroad? This stunning exhibition sheds some light on this little-known part of our country's history.

INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION AND HUMAN RIGHTS: CRITICAL RESEARCH AND POLICY PERSPECTIVES

17/01/2013–07/03/2013, Oxford

This seminar series questions the relationship between international migration and human rights commitments. Some migration issues are commonly framed in terms of human rights, such as the protection of refugees, family reunification and the protection of the victims of trafficking. Human rights norms and ideals are also frequently invoked to challenge states’ harsh treatment of migrants, in particular detention, albeit with limited success. Yet, in other contexts, state sovereignty appears to be given great sway, and the connections between international migration and human rights are less apparent.

A RIGHTS-BASED, GENDER-EQUITABLE APPROACH TO THE REGIONAL GOVERNANCE OF MIGRATION: AN ELUSIVE OR ACHIEVABLE PROSPECT?

15/01/2013, Geneva

Solutions to the challenges of international labour migration are typically sought at the global level. But in practice, most developments related to migration governance have taken place at the national, bilateral and regional levels. The past few decades have seen many initiatives to remove barriers to intra-regional labour movements in Asia, Africa and Latin America. These have often had more ambitious, rights-based goals—at least on paper—than similar projects in developed regions. Yet implementation of these initiatives has been slow or non-existent, and often triggered other difficulties for migrants.

This policy forum brings together a panel of experts from diverse fields and professional experience to discuss the status quo and future potential of the regional governance of migration.
