Evaluation of the impact of neighborhood initiatives

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The University of Leuven (KUL) in collaboration with the University of Liège (ULg), conducted a survey to measure the impact of neighborhood initiatives organized by reception centers for asylum seekers in Belgium. Each reception center in Belgium organizes many activities in order to integrate as much as possible as an open center in their environment: open days, volunteer actions, theatrical performances, workshops, etc. Through the 'neighborhood initiatives', the centers seek to create a positive attitude from the Belgian population towards reception centers for asylum seekers and to present a correct and realistic image of what is an asylum seeker.

Assisted voluntary return and reintegration

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
IOM offers AVRR services to migrants who are unwilling or unable to remain in Egypt and wish to return to their country of origin. The AVRR programme in Egypt started in 2011 and since then stranded and vulnerable migrants mainly from Africa and Asia were assisted. Each of these migrants have a distinct migratory story of how they got to Egypt and why they wanted to return. Some of these migrants survived exceptional circumstance, such as trafficking, abuse, as well as other numerous forms of exploitation. Returning migrants receive reintegration grants in their country of origin and the vast majority use in starting-up their own business, specifically in the agriculture sector.

Protection in Crisis: Forced Migration and Protection in a Global Era

Authors Roger Zetter
Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
More than 51 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced today as refugees, asylum seekers, or internally displaced persons. According to the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, to be recognized legally as a refugee, an individual must be fleeing persecution on the basis of religion, race, political opinion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group, and must be outside the country of nationality. However, the contemporary drivers of displacement are complex and multilayered, making protection based on a strict definition of persecution increasingly problematic and challenging to implement. Many forced migrants now fall outside the recognized refugee and asylum apparatus. Much displacement today is driven by a combination of intrastate conflict, poor governance and political instability, environmental change, and resource scarcity. These conditions, while falling outside traditionally defined persecution, leave individuals highly vulnerable to danger and uncertain of the future, compelling them to leave their homes in search of greater security. In addition, the blurring of lines between voluntary and forced migration, as seen in mixed migration flows, together with the expansion of irregular migration, further complicates today's global displacement picture. This report details the increasing mismatch between the legal and normative frameworks that define the existing protection regime and the contemporary patterns of forced displacement. It analyzes contemporary drivers and emerging trends of population displacement, noting that the majority of forcibly displaced people – some 33.3 million – remain within their own countries, and that more than 50 percent of the displaced live in urban areas. The author then outlines and assesses key areas where the international protection system is under the most pressure, and finally examines the key implications of these trends for policymakers and the international community, outlining some possible policy directions for reform.
